Cowboys to Claim 1st-Round D-Lineman Jerry Tillery?
Updated by the minute, our Dallas Cowboys NFL News, Rumors and Transaction Tracker, on the roster-building effort and more ... NOV 12 COWBOYS AND TILLERY? The Los Angeles Chargers are waiving former first-round defensive tackle Jerry Tillery - and the Dallas Cowboys, always looking to fortify a good defense (albeit with some run-stopping challenges as they prep for Sunday at Green Bay) would like a piece of the action.But there's a problem - a problem of being too good.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that both Micah Parsons and DeMarcus Lawrence will play.
According to the NFL Network insider, 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."
That's obviously big-time news for Mike McCarthy's team.
"D Law may become a situational guy down the road the with the chronic feet issues. He’s a champ for playing through it," one fan wrote.
"Lawrence had 3 sacks in his last meeting against the Giants. Injury or not, always have to take him into account. Same w/Parsons, who is likely the most dangerous defender in the NFL. Giants banged up OL has quite a challenge ahead. Let's see if they can somehow find a way," one fan added.
"This Game Needs To Be Over ASAP So When Can Take The Helmets Of Both Of These Dudes & Rest Them," another fan wrote.
The Cowboys and the Giants are scheduled to kick off at 4:30 p.m. E.T.
The game will be on FOX.
