Sean Lee out for Cowboys
By Todd Archer
ARLINGTON, Texas -- As expected, the Dallas Cowboys' Sean Lee did not play in Sunday's 23-13 win against Seattle because of a dislocated left wrist suffered last week at Philadelphia.
Punter Mat McBriar also missed the game with a nerve problem in his left leg and will be replaced by Chris Jones, who was called up from the practice squad Saturday.
Lee did not practice all week but officially was listed as doubtful. He took part in some conditioning work before the game, wearing a black splint. The Cowboys will be patient with making a decision on whether Lee would need surgery and miss the rest of the season.
Keith Brooking replaced Lee in the starting lineup and the Cowboys also will use safety Barry Church in some of the sub packages. Rookie linebacker Bruce Carter also is expected to see his first defensive snaps of the season.
Running back Felix Jones (ankle), cornerback Mike Jenkins (hamstring), guard David Arkin, center Kevin Kowalski and defensive end Clifton Geathers are also inactive.
The Seahawks are going without quarterback Josh Portis, receiver Kris Durham, safety Jeron Johnson, cornerback Ron Parker, offensive lineman Jarriel King, tight end Cameron Morrah and defensive tackle Al Woods.
