Cowboys’ linebacker Sean Lee missed Sunday’s 23-13 win over the Seahawks with a dislocated wrist, but if all goes according to plan this week, he could return for the team’s match-up with the Buffalo Bills at Cowboys Stadium this Sunday.
Team doctors are waiting for the swelling on the wrist to subside enough for the second-year linebacker to be fitted for a cast--which could allow him to play.
"With Sean Lee, we'll see how he practices this week and see if he does practice," said owner and general manager Jerry Jones on 105.3 FM The Fan today, via the Dallas Morning News. "It's going to be a club out there, it's going to be quite a restrictive cast. He's not going to be able to have fingers available to him on that hand with that cast on there.
“Ultimately you would hope that it would work toward that and he'd have more flexibility with what he can do with that hand."
Lee is hopeful that he’ll be able to return this week, but as is the case with everyone else at Valley Ranch, there’s not much he can do but wait and see how the injury progresses.
"We're just going to take a few more looks at it and try to see if I am ready to practice this week," Lee said Monday night. "We're still talking to doctors and taking a few more X-Rays and then from there we'll make a decision.
"This week, hopefully ... we will be ready to go. I think the rest is going to help. I think that's why the doctors wanted me to stay out of this [Seattle] game. Once they feel I am ready to go, I am going to come back into full action. Hopefully that will be sooner rather than later."
