Dal­las ex­pects Lee to miss 3 games

The Star Democrat - - SPORTS -

(TNS) — The Cow­boys are brac­ing to play the re­main­der of the month with­out Pro Bowl line­backer Sean Lee.

Sources say it ap­pears Lee will miss the next three games as he re­cov­ers from a pulled ham­string. There’s an out­side chance he could re­turn for the team’s re­match with Wash­ing­ton to end the month, but sources say it’s more likely he’ll be out un­til the team faces the New York Giants on Dec. 10, giv­ing him nearly one full month to re­cover.

There’s no way Lee will be ready for Sun­day night’s show­down against Philadel­phia. Since that be­gins a stretch of three games in 12 days for the Cow­boys, the club is pro­ceed­ing as if he’ll miss all of those games given the na­ture of the in­jury.

Lee missed the Cow­boys’ first two games in Oc­to­ber with a ham­string in­jury. He was in­jured in the first quar­ter of Sun­day’s loss to At­lanta, eight de­fen­sive snaps into the game, when he was hit by Fal­cons left tackle Jake Matthews.

“We’ll take it day by day and don’t an­tic­i­pate him prac­tic­ing cer­tainly im­me­di­ately this week,” head coach Ja­son Gar­rett said of Lee at his Mon­day af­ter­noon news con­fer­ence. “It might be some time.

“We’ll see.”
