Sean Lee says receiver Golden Tate can celebrate his big hit. He said that’s part of making a big hit.
“I bet if we went head to head and square up he probably wouldn’t be celebrating as much,” Lee said after the 27-7 loss to the Seahawks.
Lee said the hit is part of the game, even if the Cowboys believe it should have drawn a penalty as a hit on a defenseless player.
“It’s part of the game of football,” he said. “It happens. I feel good. I was able to come back into the game. The trainers did a great job assessing me. Other than losing my wind, not a big deal.”
Lee said he was fine and not trying to argue his way back into the game.
“No. They went through the process that they have to do,” he said. “They did it. I cleared everything from a concussion standpoint and was fine. I was able to go back in. Head didn’t hurt at all, even after the hit. It was more just losing my breath, catching my breath. That’s why I was kneeling down.”
