Diggs’s devastating season-ending knee injury sent shockwaves around the NFL at a time where the Dallas defense has been clicking on all cylinders through two weeks. As reactions to the star corner’s diagnosis poured in, Parsons took to X (formerly known as Twitter) to show his support for Diggs in a post that included two pictures of the pair on game day.
“I am my brothers keeper! I got you 7! No more need to be said!,” wrote Parsons along with lion and eagle emojis.

Parsons’ social media shout out underscores what was an all-around difficult day for Diggs, his team and the fanbase.
A 2021 first-team All-Pro and two-time Pro Bowler, Diggs was in the midst of further proving his standing as one of the NFL’s premier, young players on a defense that has allowed the fewest yards per game (193.0) and logged the most turnovers (7) through two games. The 25-year-old’s strong start followed an offseason where Dallas inked him to a five-year, $97 million contract, making him one of the highest-paid cornerbacks in the league.
