    Adding to the list of Cowboys who came away from the Giants game with injuries, the Dallas Morning News reported today that inside linebacker Sean Lee sustained a sprain to his already injured wrist--but, fortunately for Dallas, Lee doesn’t believe that aggravation will lead to any time lost.

    "I just sprained it a little bit, nothing serious," Lee said after Sunday night’s loss. "I'll be fine. I'll be rolling next week."

    Lee recorded eight tackles, a team-high on Sunday, and an interception in his first game without the so-called “Q-tip” cast on his wrist. The new cast freed Lee’s fingers, unlike the club he was wearing in previous weeks. He actually changed casts at half, after he discovered that the protective wrap with which he started the game constricted him from moving the wrist backward.

    "We didn't expect to have issues with it going the other way," he explained. "We modified it in the second half, ended up going with something that will work and we'll probably go forward with that."

    Lee leads the team in tackles with 87--safety Gerald Sensabaugh is second on the team, with 67.
