Cowboys linebacker Sean Lee has by no means had good luck with accidents throughout his NFL profession. Now, the All-Pro has dangerous timing together with his accidents.
Coach Jason Garrett delivered what appears like not-so-good information about Lee’s injured hamstring.
“It might be some time,” Garrett stated, by way of Jon Machota of the Dallas Morning News.
The Cowboys nonetheless listing Lee as day after day, however he isn’t prone to play Sunday in opposition to the Eagles. It will get worse: The Cowboys have solely three days off between video games, enjoying the Chargers on Thanksgiving. Then, they play the next Thursday. So dealing with a stretch of three video games in 11 days, it is perhaps a stretch for the Cowboys to get Lee again for any of them.
Lee missed two video games earlier this season with the hamstring damage and aggravated it after solely eight performs in Sunday’s loss to the Falcons. Jaylon Smith repalaced Lee and made 4 tackles, however the Falcons rushed for 132 yards on 34 carries regardless of dropping beginning operating again Devonta Freeman to a concussion after solely two performs.
“Obviously when your front-line players go out, you have to be able to continue to play and be effective,” Garrett stated. “Often times that’s seen on the offensive side of the ball, but it certainly applies to defense and certainly applies in Sean Lee’s case. We simply have to play better when he’s not in there. It’s not only against the run, but it’s against the pbad. We’ll continue to look at that, the personnel that we have in there, what we’re asking them to do and just seeing if they’re capable of doing it on a consistent basis. Again, we’re evaluating that. We have to make sure we get better in that area.”
Left deal with Tyron Smith has a greater probability to return to the lineup this month. The All-Pro labored out Monday morning, together with operating, as he nurses a groin damage that saved him out Sunday. Chaz Green began in Smith’s place and allowed 5 sacks earlier than the Cowboys benched him.
“We’ll take his situation day-by-day,” Garrett stated of Smith. “Probably don’t anticipate him practicing on Wednesday, but hopefully as the week goes on, he gets healthier and healthier and gets on the practice field.”
The Cowboys had been with out Lee, Smith, kicker Dan Bailey and operating again Ezekiel Elliott for all or most of Sunday’s recreation. The 4 gamers have mixed for eight Pro Bowls and 4 All-Pro nods.
