Cowboys Injuries: Positive updates provided on Jayron Kearse and Micah Parsons

After a dominant performance from the on both sides of the ball in the round of the 2022 , a few key defenders found themselves banged up a bit after their victory. 

The biggest names were , , and

Kearse exited the game against the in the third quarter with a left knee . He was helped to the sideline by team trainers and would not return.

Jayron Kearse intercepted in the first quarter of the game, on Brady's first redzone interception in a playoff game.

Despite not returning, Kearse has been limited in practice the last two days.

He also told reporters he would 100% play Sunday against the . “I'm good. Feeling good. This is easier to handle than the first time,” he said. “We want to win it all. We're craving a , that's enough motivation for us.”

As for the first-team All-Pro Parsons, he also will be playing Sunday.

No way he will miss this matchup.

We could see he was slow to get up at the end of the first half. Parsons finished the game well and had one sack, nine pressures, and two QB hits.

“I’m feeling good,” Parsons said. He added he was excited about the matchup this week.

On the other side of the ball, veteran offensive lineman Peters will likely be out Sunday. The 40-year-old offensive lineman suffered a hip injury in the third quarter against the Buccaneers and did not return to the game.

On Wednesday, he did not participate with his teammates in the walkthrough to start this week's slate of practices.

With a short week, don't expect him to be ready.

That'll leave the Cowboys even thinner on the , but will probably slide over from to , and will take over at .

The Cowboys can live without Peters in the lineup, but If Dallas has to be without Kearse or Parsons, we could start worrying.

The defensive side of the ball is what I'm most worried about as the Cowboys travel to Levi's Stadium to face the 49ers.

Kearse and Parsons will rely heavily on how Kyle Shannahan runs his .

The offense runs through Deebo Samual and . You stop them and you control the Niners, but that won't be an easy task.

Playing on the road Monday night didn't do them any favors. The 49ers played on Saturday at home. Therefore, they don't have to travel or get on a flight and have an extra two days since their last game.

Dallas could have used the extra time like they had, but will have his players ready to go.
