Injury report: Morris Claiborne questionable; Lee, Harris, Carter out

The Cowboys will play Sunday's game without two starting linebackers. Middle linebacker Sean Lee (neck) and weakside linebacker Bruce Carter (hamstring) both have been ruled out by the team. Receiver Dwayne Harris (hamstring) also will not play.

Cornerback Morris Claiborne (hamstring) is questionable despite not practicing this week. Claiborne has missed four of the last five games. He had been away part of this week after the death of his father.

Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said Claiborne has had a "challenging" few weeks.

"You put all those circumstances for anybody of any age and any background, and it’s very difficult," Garrett said Friday. "I think he’s handled it well. You have to take care of those things. Whenever a family member certainly your father passes away, that’s a big impactful situation on your life and we try to as an organization help our players as best we can. He has to work through that and he has to work through that with his family and that’s a very difficult situation. Then, like you said, the fact that he’s trying to get back from the injury that compounds the situation. But he’s handled it well. You take it one day at a time and I think he’s worked through it really fairly well."

Linebacker Justin Durant (hamstring), defensive tackle Jason Hatcher (neck), linebacker DeVonte Holloman (neck) and linebacker Orie Lemon (personal) are probable. Lemon was not at practice Friday. Durant, Hatcher and Holloman fully participated in practice.
