Most of the news coming out of Valley Ranch this week seems to suggest that middle linebacker Sean Lee, who was forced out of the loss to the Chicago Bears last Monday with a neck injury, will play this Sunday when the Packers visit AT&T Stadium. Lee himself said recently that he doesn’t believe the injury will keep him out against Green Bay.
Lee won’t deny that the injury can be a debilitating one, though.
“It is probably similar to a stinger. Probably the same thing,” Lee said, per the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “A muscle spasm where you’re neck locks up pretty good can can’t move it for a about a minute and then hitting kind of aggravates it. The more you hit the more it kind of locks up to you.”
Lee went on to express some frustration over the fact that he has so struggled to remain healthy through the first four seasons of his NFL career.
"Personally for me, it’s not staying on the football field. It’s one of those deals where obviously I try to do it and it hasn’t happened,” he said. “I have to find a way to stay out there, and I’ve said that over and over again. For me, that’s the most frustrating part. I want to be out there in the worst way and I continuously seem to have issues not being on the field.”
