Complete with a large white cast on his injured left wrist, inside linebacker Sean Lee is back at practice today for the first time since suffering a dislocated wrist against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Defensive coordinator Rob Ryan conceded recently that playing with the cast would limit Lee’s abilities, as far as grasping jerseys or the ball, in the event of an interception, is concerned--and, it’s worth noting here that Lee does lead the team both in tackles and interceptions, even after missing the Seahawks game.
According to the account in the Dallas Morning News today, Lee’s use of the hand was limited enough in practice to require cornerback Frank Walker to help Lee adjust his practice jersey--not having use of your digits, as one might imagine, is kind of a noticeable change.
Anyhow, the Cowboys are hopeful that Lee will be able to play, club-hand and all, against the Bills on Sunday. That he made practice today seems to suggest that there’s a good chance that he will be available, though, as Lee and his coaches have made clear, they will continue to assess the injury as the week goes on.
