With Tony Romo reportedly done for the season with a herniated disc in his back, the Dallas Cowboys will be without their starting quarterback against the Eagles on Sunday. It’s looking increasingly likely that they’ll be without the man Jerry Jones refers to as the team’s “quarterback on defense.”
Sean Lee remains questionable as he recovers from a strained neck ligament, an injury that has already cost him two games. Lee has said team doctors will not clear him until the neck is “100 percent stable,” and there’s been no word on if he’s getting close to that point or not.
“If we could get him on the field that would be a real positive,” Jones told 105.3-FM The Fan on Tuesday, via the Dallas Morning News. “But that’s a question mark at this particular time and in no way has he been cleared to play.”
Lee has missed four games total this year--two with the neck issue, and two with a bad hamstring earlier in the year--but is still second on the team in tackles with 99, and leads the team with four interceptions.
