Cowboys middle linebacker Sean Lee returned for Monday night’s match-up with the Bears in Chicago after missing the past two games with a hamstring injury, only to be forced from the game in the second half with a neck injury. Lee said after the 45-28 loss that he expects to play next week against the Packers, but that he’d undergo an MRI this week at Valley Ranch.
“I tried to keep coming back, but I wasn’t able to hit anybody,” said Lee, who added that he’d never had a neck injury before, per the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “The leg is good. I’m hoping I just bounce back and should be ready for the next week.”
Fellow linebacker Bruce Carter was injured in the loss as well, with a hamstring issue. But like Lee, he doesn’t sound terribly worried about the issue moving forward.
“My legs were already tight in this cold weather,” Carter said. “I’ll be all right.”
