Jerry Jones doesn’t want to speculate too much about Sean Lee’s health, but he says that because the weak side linebacker had a concussion just five weeks before this latest concussion, it’s probably a safe bet that he will be held out of Sunday’s matchup between the Cowboys and Buccaneers in Tampa.
Specifically, Jones said Lee is “probably doubtful.”
Lee was hurt on the first defensive snap of the second half, when he and Rolando McClain closed in on the Eagles’ DeMarco Murray at the same time, and he took a shot from McClain as they brought Murray down together. Lee stayed on the turf after the play, and was examined for both a neck injury and a concussion.
It was the concussion that forced him from the game, for the second time in five weeks.
"We are taking into consideration that he had an earlier concussion this year," Jones told 105.3-FM The Fan, via the Dallas Morning News. "We are looking at it through that perspective. He will have to pass certain tests throughout the week. That's going to be quite a challenge for him since one of the parts of the test will start with is that he's had an earlier concussion in the year, so that's quite a hurdle to overcome when you've had another concussion."
