Dallas Cowboys’ second year linebacker Sean Lee isn’t giving up on the possibility of playing Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks. Lee dislocated his left wrist last Sunday in the loss to the Philadelphia Eagles when his hand awkwardly collided with the crown of QB Michael Vick’s helmet. Not only is Lee the team’s leader in tackles and interceptions, but he is also the primary play-caller on the defense.
When asked about Lee’s current playing status, Head Coach Jason Garrett had this to say during Thursday’s press conference:
“We have not ruled him out. Just monitoring him day-to-day. He did not do anything in today’s practice…I think they’re working on a cast. Typically, what happens is there’s alot of different iterations of that thing. What is comfortable? What feels good? And you kinda keep working through those kinda things. So I think they’re in that process right now.”
If there is any way Lee can get on the field, he should. The defense will already be without starting CB Mike Jenkins, who injured his hamstring on Sunday. Jenkins is expected to be out for four weeks. Also absent from Thursday’s practice was starting RB Felix Jones.
But it’s not all bad news coming out of Valley Ranch. Starting guard Kyle Kosier practiced today after being limited in practice on Wednesday due to a foot injury. According to Coach Garrett, Kosier was able to do “most everything” today and seemed like he was moving around okay. Not exactly a resounding assurance, but with so many key players possibly out this Sunday, we’ll take what we can get!
