We break down the news that Micah Parsons has a knee/ankle injury and what it means for Week 12 and beyond.

Wednesday update: The Cowboys wrapped up their practice week and Parsons was once again limited on Wednesday. He is officially listed as questionable on the final injury report.

Tuesday PM Update: Parsons was upgraded to limited on Tuesday. He is still listed as dealing with a knee and an ankle injury and would be a big blow to the Cowboys' defense if he cannot play. A full participation on Wednesday would go a long way toward his availability for the game on Thursday.

Dallas Cowboys linebacker Micah Parsons is dealing with both a knee and ankle injury and was listed as DNP during Monday’s practice ahead of their Thanksgiving showdown against the New York Giants. The Cowboys only conducted a walk-through, so his injury designation is an estimation.

Parsons had his ankle rolled up on during the team’s 40-3 wrecking of the Vikings on Sunday. He was otherwise dominant with five QB hits, four tackles, and two sacks during the blowout. Afterwards, he indicated that he felt a pain but should be fine and all reports have pointed towards him being good to go for this NFC East showdown.

Fantasy football implications for Week 12

The Cowboys will most likely limit his participation in practice over the next few days as a precaution. The dominant linebacker should be ready to roll and that is good news for fantasy managers who have banked on the Cowboys defense this season.
