Dallas Cowboys linebacker Micah Parsons was not a fan of Leonard Fournette’s vicious block that had Parsons flying during the Cowboys 19-3 loss on Sunday Night Football to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
After Parsons bagged a pair of first-half sacks on Bucs quarterback Tom Brady, Fournette was enlisted to make sure he did not touch the GOAT again. Fournette delivered a devastating blow as Parsons was preparing to engage with Bucs left tackle Josh Wells, sending him airborne.
No penalty was called on the play, and Fournette was mostly praised for his pass blocking after the video of the hit went viral.
After the game, Parsons took to Twitter and called out Fournette for the block.
Parsons is one of the league’s top young stars, winning the Defensive Rookie of the Year award last season. The last thing fans want to see is him sustaining an unnecessary injury. We’re lucky that wasn’t the case on this occasion.
Speaking of injuries, the Cowboys are already dealing with enough of them as it is, as it was announced after their 19-3 loss to the Bucs last night that Dak Prescott had sustained a hand injury that will require surgery. The latest report has the Cowboys quarterback missing six to eight weeks.
