The Cowboys are chugging along toward their clash with Washington this Sunday. As always, injuries are a big part of how a game plays out. With that in mind, we go to the injury report.
First, Sean Lee thinks he’s ready to play on Sunday.
Looking pretty good for Sean Lee playing on Sunday. "The veteraness part of Sean, the fits, the leadership, that presence, his presence is so good," Rod Marinelli said. "He’s decided he’s ready to go. We’ll wait to the end of the week but so far, so good."— Calvin Watkins (@calvinwatkins) October 18, 2018
We’ll have to see if the Cowboys decide to do that, or do they wait until after the bye week. Lee was a full participant in today’s practice. If he does return, the Cowboys will have to figure out a rotation between Lee, Jaylon Smith and Leighton Vander Esch.
As for the rest of the report:
Linebacker Joe Thomas and wide receiver Tavon Austin were both non-participants in today’s practice and will probably be for a long time.
The only limited player was Chidobe Awuzie. Awuzie is battling through his ankle injuries in hopes of playing this Sunday.
The good news was that Lee, DeMarcus Lawrence, Randy Gregory, Maliek Collins and David Irving were all full participants in today’s practice. The Cowboys defensive line looks to be getting fully healthy.
