Injury update: Sean Lee is OK
By Calvin Watkins
IRVING, Texas -- The Cowboys have numerous injuries to manage this week before playing the New York Giants in the regular season finale with the NFC Eastern division title on the line.
*Sean Lee. He suffered a hamstring injury in the second half versus Philadelphia but expects to practice this week. "My leg is fine," Lee said. "I'll be ready to play."
*Danny McCray. The safety missed last week's game with an ankle sprain and hopes to practice at midweek. McCray said he will do some running on Wednesday.
*Josh Brent. The defensive end said he wants to practice Wednesday. He's missed the last four games with a sprained MCL and a dislocated kneecap.
*DeMarcus Ware. Ware came out OK after playing a handful of snaps at Tampa Bay the previous week because of a stinger. Ware received extended snaps in the second half against the Eagles. He still might be limited in practice this week as a precaution.
*Jay Ratliff. The starting nose tackle is battling a rib cage muscle strain and played well into the second half. Like Ware, he should be limited in practice this week.
*Felix Jones. After six snaps against the Eagles on Saturday, Jones came out of the game fine and coach Jason Garrett said he was pleased with how he looked.
