A hurt big toe forced Cowboys’ inside linebacker Sean Lee to rely on a set of crutches to get around team headquarters at Valley Ranch on Monday, but he’s optimistic about his chances of playing against the New York Giants when they visit Cowboys Stadium next Sunday.
Lee suffered the injury in the third quarter of Sunday’s 19-14 victory over the Panthers in Carolina, and got a fresh tape job on the sidelines before it was decided that he would not re-enter the game. Veteran Dan Connor took his place alongside Bruce Carter for the remainder of the victory.
“I’m going to do what the doctors say and rehab it and see where I’m at,” Lee said, per the Dallas Morning News, “but I think I’ll be ready to roll.”
Optimism aside, Lee said after the game Sunday that he has never suffered an injury like this one before. He underwent an MRI on Monday, but the results haven’t been made public as of yet.
“I don’t think it is anything too serious,” Lee added.
