The Dallas Cowboys are just hours away from their biggest game of the season so far. They'll face off against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday Night Football with a ton on the line for both teams, including potential playoff berths.

Dallas needs its entire squad playing at its best to emerge with the win in Week 14. However, it now turns out star Micah Parsons could be affected by a surprise health concern.

The Cowboys announced Parsons was added to the injury report due to an illness on Sunday morning. The overwhelming consensus from reporters is he's still expected to suit up, though it remains to be seen how his Week 14 status is affected with kickoff still hours away.

This is certainly the last thing Dallas fans want to be worrying about right now. The Cowboys' organization has already had enough surprises this week, as head coach Mike McCarthy was forced to miss part of the team's practices due to accute appendicitis and ensuing surgery.

Parsons is no stranger to feeling under the weather during games this season. In Week 11, he was spotted throwing up on the sideline twice, which he revealed was due to taking pre-workout that had threw his body out of whack.

That didn't stop him from racking up a season-high 2.5 sacks versus Carolina, though, while playing his usual serving of snaps. Dallas will have to hope its gets similar results from the stud playmaker in primetime, assuming he does take the field.
