His injury was described as a “leg issue,” but based off the picture, Parsons appears to be favoring his left calf. Watkins discovered what led to the ailment.
“Micah Parsons said he got kicked in the leg, and he’s going to get it looked at,” Watkins said.

Parsons, though, shared how there was no cause for concern on his end, indicating he still feels fine.
“It’s just something that happened to me, it’s football,” Parsons said per Watkins. “I’m not worried about it.”
Dallas is already dealing with an assortment of injuries. Head coach Mike McCarthy revealed before Tuesday’s practice that cornerback Nahshon Wright, linebacker Malik Jenkins, and rookie defensive end Viliami Fehoko may not play on Saturday versus Seattle.
Wright was seen in a walking boot, Jenkins is dealing with his own foot ailment, and Fehoko injured his shoulder.
