Practice report: Sean Lee limited again
By Todd Archer
IRVING, Texas -- Sean Lee was limited in practice for the second straight day with a neck injury, but the signs are that the Dallas Cowboys inside linebacker will play Sunday against the Green Bay Packers.
Lee said he was hurt on the first play of Monday's game and the neck locked up as the game went on. In the second half, he was finally forced to leave Dallas' 45-28 loss to the Chicago Bears.
"It’s just a muscle deal," Lee said. "But it wasn’t allowing me to do my job effectively in that game and it happened about three or four times."
An MRI on Tuesday revealed no structural damage, and he can wear added protection Sunday.
"We’re looking into different neck rolls and to stabilize it a little better," Lee said. "We’ll see as the week goes on what I am going to use exactly."
Linebacker Bruce Carter, cornerback Morris Claiborne and wide receiver Dwayne Harris, who have hamstring injuries, missed their second straight day of practice. Linebacker Justin Durant (hamstring), defensive tackle Jason Hatcher (stinger) and linebacker DeVonte Holloman (neck) were full participants for the second straight day.
