Micah Parsons listed on Cowboys' injury report with illness ahead of Eagles game

The Dallas Cowboys might be preparing for a flu game.

Micah Parsons is listed on the team's injury report with an undisclosed illness, but he is expected to play on Sunday in the NFC East matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles, per Cowboys team reporter Nick Harris.

Parsons leads the team with 11.5 sacks so far this season and has 42 combined tackles.

In the Week 9 loss to the Eagles, the All-Pro defender had nine tackles and sacked Jalen Hurts 1.5 times.

Ahead of the rematch, Parsons spoke on the importance of the game.

"It's always one of the biggest games in football, if not the biggest," he said in an interview posted on the Cowboys website. "The intensity is always high, the emotions high, and everyone wants to win. It's a brawl. It's always one where you've got to get the ice bags ready."
