Dallas Cowboys Injury Report vs the Philadelphia Eagles
By Matthew Postins
The Dallas Cowboys will be without their top signal-caller on defense on Sunday when they face the Philadelphia Eagles, as linebacker Sean Lee was officially designated as out on Friday’s injury report.
The official injury report came out hours after the Cowboys revealed that quarterback Tony Romo had back surgery Friday morning, a surgery that ended his season.
There was far less drama surrounding Lee’s injured neck, as he did not practice for the third straight week since injuring his neck against Chicago. Some reports had Lee designated as out as early as Monday of this week.
Another linebacker, Ernie Sims, is doubtful with a groin injury. Sims did not practice this week and did not play last week against Washington.
Defensive end DeMarcus Ware is questionable with a back injury, but insisted that he would play in Sunday night’s de facto NFC East championship game.
Cowboys listed as probable include wide receiver Dez Bryant (back), cornerback Morris Claiborne (hamstring), safety Jakar Hamilton (hip), wide receiver Dwayne Harris (hamstring), defensive tackle Jason Hatcher (neck), linebacker DeVonte Holloman (hip), defensive end George Selvie (back) and defensive end Jarius Wynn (chest).
Bryant learned on Friday that he was the Cowboys’ only representative to the Pro Bowl, barring injury replacements.
The Eagles will be without safety Colt Anderson (knee), who was designated as out on Friday. Another safety, Earl Wolff (knee) is questionable.
Eagles that are probable for the game include cornerback Brandon Boykin (hip), linebacker Trent Cole (hand), safety Kurt Coleman (hamstring), tackle Lane Johnson (back), linebacker Mychal Kendricks (knee) and guard Evan Mathis (illness).
