Cowboys linebacker Sean Lee hasn't practiced this week, and it still seems unlikely he'll play Sunday against the Seahawks. But the Cowboys are fitting his dislocated left wrist with a cast.
""Typically what happens is there are a lot of different iterations of that thing. What is comfortable? What feels good?" Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said. "And you kind of keep working through those kinds of things."
Lee consulted with Dr. Bo Frederick, a Dallas hand and wrist specialist, on Monday. The doctor determined Lee’s wrist does not need immediate surgery, which would end Lee’s season.
But there is a good chance that Lee, who leads the team with 73 tackles, misses at least this week.
Bradie James and Keith Brooking will fill in for Lee, but the Cowboys also are trying to get second-round pick Bruce Carter familiar enough with the defense to give him some plays in relief of the veterans.
