NFL: Cowboys DE DeMarcus Lawrence, LB Micah Parsons to play vs. Giants


Share post:

Cowboys defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence will play Thursday on a broken foot, and linebacker Micah Parsons plans to push through multiple injuries to join him on Dallas’ dominant front on Thanksgiving Day against the Giants.

Lawrence has a screw inserted in his previously broken foot but a second fracture was detected and is causing him “real pain.” But Lawrence doesn’t want to be shut down and had three of his six season sacks in the first meeting with New York, a 23-16 win in Week 3.

Parsons is dealing with an achy knee but didn’t have an MRI this week.

The Cowboys are on a record pace with 42 sacks through 10 games and recorded five sacks of Giants quarterback Daniel Jones in the September victory at MetLife Stadium. Parsons has 10 sacks.

Dallas is running without multiple defensive linemen Thursday due to illness.

Parsons and Lawrence participating is crucial for the Cowboys, considering the Giants are likely to start at least two offensive linemen who haven’t been in the first unit yet this season.

Offensive tackle Evan Neal (knee) didn’t make the trip and left tackle Andrew Thomas (illness) is questionable.
