In all likelihood Lee will be inactive for the Raiders game as he continues to rehab from a strained hamstring suffered Nov. 10 against the New Orleans Saints. Last week a source said Lee had an “outside shot” of playing but the Cowboys would rather have him closer to 100 percent for the final four games than rush him back to play Thursday.
Coach Jason Garrett altered the schedule, moving up practice to 9:45 a.m. and cut it back to roughly 45 minutes. The final practice of the week is typically focused on red-zone and short-yardage situations.
“We’ve played with this Thanksgiving schedule a lot of different ways,” Garrett said. “Again, you’re balancing getting the work in with making sure they get enough rest. We just felt that this was a better way to do it.”
