Micah Parsons of the Cowboys

The linebacker of the Dallas Cowboys, Micah Parsons, appeared on the week 14 injury report with a hip problem, which has limited his availability to train prior to Sunday’s crash in Washington.

“Something that showed up at practice yesterday,” Coach Mike McCarthy said on December 10, via the official team site. “I don’t think it’s serious… I understand the problem started in the gym last Monday and has been bothering him ever since. So we are being cautious. ”

Luckily, for the top defensive rookie candidate of the year, his availability for the game hasn’t changed. Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones offered reassurance on Parsons’ status.

“Personally, I’m not worried,” Jones said Dec. 10 in a radio interview on 105.3 The Fan. “It is just an ailment. It happened to him during his fitness, and I’m sure he would be the first to say that he would like to be there right now. So in this case there is no need to worry about its availability.

Parsons was not named injured in the last injury report of the week. He will start alongside DeMarcus Lawrence and Randy Gregory against an emerging Washington team, whose running offense is the ninth-best in the league with a 124.4 yards per game average.

Jerry also spoke of the state of Pollard

Unlike Parsons, Cowboys running back Tony Pollard, who is dealing with a leg injury, did receive a designation for Sunday’s game: in doubt. After missing three practices in a row, Pollard may well be out, although there is still hope that he will play at FedEx Field.

“Tony is trying to get over it. We’ll see how it goes, ”McCarthy said on December 10, via the official team site. “We will wait until before the game starts.”

Initially classified as a sprain, Pollard revealed who suffered a plantar fascia tear in his leg during his 58-yard rushing touchdown the previous Thursday against the New Orleans Saints. He considers that his presence in the game will be a last minute decision. Jones thinks the same.

“The issue is how he will tolerate it. The injury is not something that has to be seen in the long term, but it must be paid attention to. It will be a last minute decision, ”Jones said of Pollard’s availability, via 105.3 The Fan.

Gallimore is set to debut in the 2021 season

In addition to the return of Gregory (twins), defensive lineman Neville Gallimore will also play again. He will make his debut after dislocating his elbow in the preseason.

The player, selected in the third round of the 2020 draft, is expected to be activated from the disabled list and be available against Washington, which will allow Dallas to have its entire defense for the first time this season.

“Neville is eager to play. I liked everything he did in practice yesterday, ”McCarthy said on December 10, via the official team site. “Randy had a cold at the beginning of the week, so we tried to take care of him by limiting his practice time. They both look good. I anticipate that they will be ready for next Sunday.
