First up was Cowboys rookie sensation Micah Parsons, who has been battling a hip issue throughout the week.

However, Jones clarified that the issue was strictly soreness due to his strength and conditioning routine and that there is little concern towards his ability to play Sunday.

"I don't, on a personal basis, have a concern about it," Jones told K&C Masterpiece. "Its soreness. It's from his strength and conditioning, and I think he would be the first to tell you he'd be out there right now. So it's one that doesn't have that kind of concern with his availability."

On the other side of the ball, running back Tony Pollard is a bit more of a concern for the Cowboys.

After suffering a foot injury this past week, Jones labeled the all-purpose back as a game-time decision, and that the injury is not a long term concern.

"It's a game-time (decision)," Jones said. "The issue is how he tolerates it. The injury is not one that is long-term in the nature of his mobility in the sense of a longer look, but it is something worth noting. It will be a game-time (decision)."

Dallas and Washington will kick off a noon central time on Sunday from FedEx Field.
