Sean Lee will be a game-time decision when the Dallas Cowboys take on the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday, according to Drew Davison of the Star-Telegram.

The Dallas Cowboys linebacker is dealing with a hamstring injury that kept him out of practice every day this week.

The Cowboys and Lee will make a game-time decision on his availability for Sunday’s game against the Los Angeles Rams.

“We’ll take his situation day by day,” coach Jason Garrett said. “He’s making progress. Works very hard on his rehab, so we’ll see what he’s able to do today.”

If Lee is unable to go it is likely that Justin Durant will pick up the majority of his snaps. Durant is a solid veteran, but he certainly isn’t in the class of Lee. With the Cowboys facing Todd Gurley, Lee’s presence would be most welcome.

The Dallas Morning News is reporting that Chaz Green is dealing with a hip issue, something he had surgery for in the past.

Cowboys starting left guard Chaz Green did not take part in the portion of Friday's practice open to the media. He's dealing with a hip injury. He had hip surgery as a rookie that kept him out most of the 2015 season.

Specifics aren't yet known about what he's dealing with, but staying healthy has been a an issue for Green throughout his career. He's started all three games this season at left guard. If he can't go Sunday against the Los Angeles Rams he could be replaced by Jonathan Cooper.

After charting Green’s performance in the last game, honestly, a switch to Cooper might be a good thing. Contrary to some reports covering for Green, he was a big part of the running game problem on Monday night.
