Following a 34-7 beating at the hands of the rival Philadelphia Eagles, the Dallas Cowboys didn’t need any more bad news--but there’s been plenty. First, word came that starting cornerback Mike Jenkins will likely be out until December with a hamstring injury, and now, Sean Lee is dealing with a wrist injury that could threaten his availability for this week’s match-up with the Seattle Seahawks.
Lee, who is currently the team leader in tackles (51) and interceptions (3), recently said he is unsure if he’ll be able to play on Sunday as he deals with a dislocated wrist suffered on the final play of the first quarter on Sunday night.
"There is still a lot we have to see going forward," Lee said, per the Dallas Morning News. "I don't know for sure what that plan is but I definitely will work with the doctors and see how it heals and go forward."
Regardless of his status for Sunday, Lee made clear that he doesn’t want to rush back into action if he’s not ready.
"I have to let it heal and take the right time," he said. "Once it feels better, we'll see going forward what I can do."
