Dallas Cowboys linebacker Micah Parsons will reportedly play through knee and ankle injuries to play against the rival New York Giants on Thanksgiving.
ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler revealed the news Thursday:

“Cowboys LB Micah Parsons (knee, ankle) had a little ankle soreness early in the week but was considered ‘good to go’ throughout prep for today’s Giants game, I’m told. He’s set to play,” Fowler tweeted.
The Cowboys listed Parsons as “questionable” in the final injury report.
Parsons made two sacks and forced two fumbles in last Sunday’s 40-3 demolishing of the Minnesota Vikings.
“I’m staying mad. Once the disrespect is out there, people are going to still try you,” Parsons told the Cowboys’ official website. “It’s almost like the bully trying to take your lunch money every day until you say ‘no, that’s enough.’ They’re going to keep taking your lunch money. I’m at that point, that’s enough, you’re not going to keep taking my lunch money.”
The Cowboys originally selected Parsons, then a former five-star prospect out of Penn State, with the No. 12 overall pick of the 2021 NFL Draft. He was named the 2021 NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year, as well as being named First-Team All-Pro and awarded Pro Bowl honors.
Parsons and the Cowboys are 10-point favorites entering the Thanksgiving game against the Giants, which will be at 4:30 p.m. ET on Fox.
