Sean Lee said he’s getting better at playing with the gigantic cast on his left hand, but it’s still tough to pick up a loose ball.
“There were some points when I thought it was a fumble, I tried to pick it up, and it just shot away,” he said with a smile after the Cowboys’ 20-19 victory against the Dolphins on Thanksgiving Day. “Things like that. You actually start playing, you don’t think about it. That’s the thing I’ve tried to concentrate on, that even though it’s wrapped, I can still do everything.”
Wrapping up on tackles remains the No. 1 hurdle, Lee said.
That’s probably the hardest thing,” he said. “But I think I’m getting better each week. Hopefully there’s not too many more weeks where I’ll have to wear it.”
Lee had a sack and seven tackles, including a tackle for loss in which he knifed through a toss sweep and leveled Dolphins running back Reggie Bush.
“I found the gap and shot it,” Lee said. “Yeah, that’s a good Thanksgiving Day hit right there.”
