Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett said Thursday that he’s “optimistic” that middle linebacker Sean Lee will play against the Packers on Sunday, after watching Lee practice for a second straight day, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.
Lee exited the loss to Chicago early with a stinger, but the subsequent MRI showed no structural damage.
Lee practiced Wednesday on a limited basis on Wednesday and was back at it on Thursday, a non-padded session.
Cornerback Morris Claiborne was back at Valley Ranch on Thursday as well. Claiborne has missed the past two games with a hamstring injury and left the team this week to attend his father’s funeral. He did not participate in team drills, according to reports, but was on the field.
