Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones said this week that it’s not looking like middle linebacker Sean Lee will be ready for the Thanksgiving Day match-up with the Oakland Raiders at AT&T Stadium.
Lee has missed the past two games with a hamstring injury.
“Sean’s one of the most optimistic players there has ever been on the Dallas Cowboys,” Jones told 105.3-FM The Fan on Tuesday, per the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “But that’s probably optimistic.”
Jones added that cornerback Morris Claiborne would most likely be held out as well. Claiborne missed the two games before the bye week with a hamstring issue and returned for the Giants game, only to exit early after suffering another hamstring injury.
“We think he just basically had a little bit of a setback, which, when you think about it, it isn’t abnormal on the same injury,” Jones said. “I don’t know if he’ll be ready. I don’t know--if we think we can play without him, then that gives him a solid two weeks between games. I can’t tell you about that one, either.”
