Dallas Cowboys’ linebacker Micah Parsons currently has an endorsement deal with C4 Energy, a company that makes both energy drinks and pre-workout powders. But he may not be for much longer. During the Cowboys’ 33-10 win over the Carolina Panthers Sunday, Parsons was seen vomiting on the sidelines at least twice during the game. And after the game, he said he wasn’t sick, but he rather had a negative reaction to some C4 powder he took before the game. (Language warning.)

That is quite the discussion, especially of a sponsor’s product. And it led to a lot of reactions. Here are some of those:

Despite all that, though, Parsons posted two and a half sacks, and was very strong by advanced metrics such as pass rush win rate as well:

So it certainly wasn’t a rough day for Parsons overall. But he may approach pregame drinks a little differently next time around.
