Sean Lee, Felix Jones listed as questionable
By Tim MacMahon
IRVING, Texas – Running back Felix Jones and inside linebacker Sean Lee are listed as questionable on the official injury report, but it’d be a major surprise if they don’t play Sunday night against the Giants.
Jones has had limited participation in the Cowboys’ three practices this week due to a tight hamstring. He started last week’s loss to the Eagles despite the injury but was pulled from the game after the Giants’ wrapped up their win over the Jets, which guaranteed this week’s game would determine the NFC East champion.
Lee missed practices on Wednesday and Thursday due to a stomach virus. He had limited participation in Friday’s practice, but defensive coordinator Rob Ryan said Lee was at Valley Ranch studying before sunrise to be sure he’d be ready for the game.
Receiver Kevin Ogletree (knee), safety Danny McCray (ankle), nose tackle Josh Brent (knee) and receiver Andre Holmes (hamstring) are also listed as questionable.
Nose tackle Jay Ratliff (rib muscle strain) and outside linebacker DeMarcus Ware (stinger), the Cowboys’ pair of Pro Bowlers, are listed as probable. They fully participated in Friday’s practice.
Quarterback Tony Romo, who was limited in practice all week due to a bruised throwing hand, is also listed as probable.
