Cowboys LB Lee doesn’t think injury is serious
Sean Lee answered questions from reporters wearing a suit and tennis shoes following Sunday’s 19-14 victory over the Carolina Panthers.
The Cowboys inside linebacker suffered a sprained right big toe during the second series of the third quarter, forcing him to miss the remainder of the second half and preventing him from wearing his dress shoes after the game.
“I don’t think it is anything too serious,” Lee said. “I’ll have to talk to the doctors and figure it out and we’ll go from there.”
Lee said he’s never had any issues with toe injuries in the past. He also said he should be able to play next week against the New York Giants.
“Doctors will check it out tomorrow and will figure it out,” Lee added. “I’m going to do what the doctors say and rehab it and see where I’m at. I think I’ll be ready to roll.”
The Cowboys’ leading tackler recorded six tackles and a pass deflection before sustaining the injury.
