The Dallas Cowboys would love to have Sean Lee back for the game against the Green Bay Packers. Whether that happens or not is still up in the air. After sitting out the Los Angeles Rams game, he was unable to practice on Wednesday heading into the Sunday game with the Packers. Joining him on the sidelines was Stephen Paea, but that’s been a weekly occurrence.

The potentially positive news at linebacker is that Anthony Hitchens went through a full practice today. It’s not a sure thing he will play, but there is a chance. Hitchens had healed much quicker than anticipated.

"I didn't know what the circumstances were," Hitchens said, "just glad it's been five weeks now instead of the full season. It went from a full fracture to just a hairline fracture. [The doctor] said everyone heals different. Mine just heals fast, so I'm just blessed to be out there running around right now."

Hitchens said the team would watch tape of his practice Wednesday to help judge if he can play against the Packers.

If Hitchens can play, that will be some relief if Lee can’t go, but they still really need The General. If neither of them can go, then we’re back to where we were last week, and that wasn’t good.

Other positive news was the return of Chidobe Awuzie to full participation. The full practice report is below.
