Middle linebacker Sean Lee was not out for the start of practice after being limited Wednesday and Thursday. Lee left Monday's game against the Bears with a neck injury. An MRI showed no structural damage, and Lee vowed Thursday that he was playing.
Keeping Lee out Friday could be precautionary as the Cowboys will practice short-yardage and goal-line situations. Justin Durant was working in the middle in Lee's place.
The Cowboys also were without receiver Dwayne Harris (hamstring), linebacker Bruce Carter (hamstring) and cornerback Morris Claiborne (hamstring). Carter and Claiborne were riding stationary bikes in the weight room during practice. Harris was working with trainers on the side. Harris, Carter and Claiborne aren't expected to play Sunday.
