Inside linebacker Sean Lee missed practice for the second consecutive day Thursday, not with an injury, but with illness. Word around Valley Ranch is that Lee has been dealing with flu-like symptoms, though, according to Calvin Watkins of ESPN Dallas, team officials have said it is not considered serious.
Meanwhile, Tony Romo was once again at practice today, participating with his swollen right hand bandaged. Romo, owner Jerry Jones and head coach Jason Garrett have all expressed optimism this week that Romo will be able to play in the de facto division championship game against the Giants on Sunday.
Some other tidbits from Thursday’s practice:
*Specialist Danny McCray missed practice with an ankle injury, while receiver Kevin Ogletree, linebacker DeMarcus Ware, and nose tackles Jay Ratliff and Josh Brent all participated.
*Derrick Dockery took reps at left guard with the first team once again, in place of injured starter Montrae Holland--meaning that Dockery will most likely replace Holland against the Giants.
