Please note that the following may make you mad, depressed, sad, or all of the above, but you must remember that I am only reporting this stuff, thanks:
The Dallas Cowboys are afraid that linebacker Sean Lee may need season-ending surgery on his right big toe, according to some other sources. Lee suffered a sprain on his right toe in the third quarter of Sunday’s win at Carolina, and was on crutches on Monday. Cowboys Head-Coach Jason Garrett did not offer an update regarding Lee’s status, as he awaited the results of an MRI.
After the game, Lee did say he would be OK, but he had a limp and had to wear his tennis shoes instead of dress-shoes with his suit as he walked to the team-bus.
The loss of Lee will be a huge blow to the Cowboys’ defense.
- Lee leaves the team in tackles with 77 stops in the first six games, according to the coach’s film, he also has two tackles for a loss, eight quarterback pressures, one interception, two pass deflections, and a forced fumble.
- It should be noted that Lee almost had a season ending injury last-season, as he had a fractured wrist.
Dan Connor, would most likely replace Lee, accordingly to the current Cowboys’ depth-chart. — Connor did earn some praise from Cowboys-head coach Jason Garrett after his efforts on Sunday’s game, as he stopped Cam Newton and the Panthers once on third-down, and a pass deflection.
