Micah Parsons, former Penn State star, expected to play vs. Giants following injury
Micah Parsons and DeMarcus Lawrence are set to suit up and play on Thanksgiving as the Dallas Cowboys (7-3) host the New York Giants (7-3) in a pivotal NFC East matchup. The former Penn State Nittany Lion and Lawrence were considered questionable joining into the matchup with concerns of a knee and ankle injury.
The #Cowboys will have both standout defenders Micah Parsons (knee, ankle) and DE Demarcus Lawrence today, despite being questionable. Lawrence is playing through a stress fracture in his foot. He already has a screw in it and had surgery in the past on both fifth metatarsals.

In 10 games this season, Parsons has accumulated 47 total tackles, 35 solo tackles, 11 tackles for loss, 10 sacks, 19 quarterback hits, 3 forced fumbles and a fumble recovery.
In the 40-3 dominating win at the Minnesota Vikings in Week 11, Parsons accounted for 4 solo tackles, one tackle for loss, 5 quarterback hits, and 2 sacks, with one being a forced fumble on the first drive of the game.
New York is expected to be without of their star offensive tackle in Evan Neal while Andrew Thomas is expected to play with an illness. Parsons and Lawrence are going to be key factors in the matchup against the NFC East rival and push for the division.
