By Calvin Watkins

LANDOVER, Md. -- The Dallas Cowboys enter the final game of the regular season with the possibility of starting middle linebacker Sean Lee returning to the field after missing last week's game against Green Bay with a sprained neck.

Lee has missed a total of four games because of injuries this season, but with the Philadelphia Eagles game meaning so much, this could be his last chance to participate.

"I visited with him before the game," Jerry Jones said. "I just visited with him again here, and it’s certainly possible. It’s a technical thing. It's something that he very easily could get cleared, and he’s ready to play if he’s cleared."

Lee has to pass certain physical tests before getting doctors to allow him to return.

Also, wide receiver Dwayne Harris (hamstring) and cornerback Morris Claiborne (hamstring) are expected to return for the regular-season finale against the Eagles.

Linebacker Ernie Sims (groin) is questionable for the Eagles, game but he's hoping to return.
