Cowboys owner Jerry Jones admitted this week that he’s pretty concerned about linebacker Sean Lee’s status for the rest of the season.
Lee missed the Thanksgiving Day victory over the Oakland Raiders with a hamstring injury before returning for the Monday Night loss to the Bears. In that game, though, Lee suffered a strained neck ligament that kept him out of Sunday’s loss to the Packers. Now, it appears that he may miss the final two weeks.
"I'm very concerned because [Lee] is our quarterback [of the defense], and it's glaring when he's not out there, and has been glaring the last two ball games," Jones told 105.3-FM The Fan, per the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. "He's the guy that not only is our leader out there in execution, but he's also the guy that is the [Tony] Romo over there, and when you don't have him, you brought in Durant. Well, we've had Durant, really, just very little time since we haven't had Lee out there. "
“It's hard to get three-deep with your quarterback over there on defense. Now, every team -- the team we just played lost their quarterback. They didn't have [Aaron] Rodgers. Every team loses key players. That's the thing here is that we've lost players. We lost players last year. But we've had a healthy Romo. That ought to be able to help us get back some of this inadequacy with some of our personnel,” said Jones.
