'Boys camp: Lee's peeved about injury
Rookie linebacker Sean Lee is upset that he's missing practices with a strained quadriceps, according to Tim MacMahon. Wade Phillips has indicated that Lee could receive significant playing time on defense, but that's not going to happen with him on the sideline.
"It’s one of those things you’ve got to nip in the bud before it gets worse, but I’m rehabbing it nonstop and I’m going to try to get back as soon as possible,” said Lee. “Hopefully it’ll be as soon as possible, because you can’t get better sitting on the sideline. You can’t help the team when sitting on the sideline."
In other news, longtime Beast reader Peter King from SI.com had an interesting take on the Dez Bryant shoulder-pad controversy:
"I think I love the fact that Dez Bryant, star rookie receiver for the Cowboys, wouldn't carry the pads of Roy Williams, fading veteran receiver for the Cowboys," writes King. "Not that I defend a rookie showing up a vet in a harmless bit of rookie hazing. But it's just that I want a guy I think will be a big-time player to have some attitude to him -- so long as he shows up and practices hard every day. He's there to play football, not carry someone's pads. I love that. Now, he'll pay for it somehow, but he's drawing his own line there. Good for him."
I know a lot of Cowboys fans agree with that perspective, but King's the first writer I've seen take this angle.
