The Dallas Cowboys returned to practice today in preparation for their game with the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday. The good news for the Cowboys is that the bye week has helped one really important player get healthy. Sean Lee participated in practice for the first time since he injured his hamstring.
Sean Lee is ready to play. In individual work during the portion of practice open to the media he popped Justin March-Lillard so hard Lee's fellow linebacker went to the ground. Lee quickly apologized. Lee has missed the last two games with a hamstring strain.
The Cowboys linebacking situation has been a mess with Lee out. His presence is the best news the Cowboys defense could get.
Tyron Smith was unable to practice today. Jason Garrett had said earlier today they didn’t expect him to do much today. His back is still giving him problems, which is a little scary for the future. If a week off during the bye didn’t help, this could be an ongoing thing for the rest of the season.
Also missing was Chidobe Awuzie who just can’t seem to shake the hamstring problem. It’s unfortunate because when he has played he’s looked like a guy that could help this defense.
Ezekiel Elliott was at practice today and is ready to play on Sunday.
