Dallas Cowboys injury report: Sean Lee will play Monday Night against the Chicago Bears
By Matthew Postins
It appears the extra break time after the Thanksgiving Day win helped the Dallas Cowboys bounce back in the injury department. Linebacker Sean Lee is a full go for Monday’s game in Chicago. A full participant in practice all week, the Cowboys listed him as probable for the contest. Lee has been off the field since the first half of the New Orleans game due to a hamstring injury.
Fellow linebacker Justin Durant, also out since the New Orleans game with a hamstring injury, appears ready to play on Monday. Like Lee, he worked out all week and is probable.
Wide receiver Dez Bryant (back), tight end Gavin Escobar (hamstring), defensive tackle Jason Hatcher (neck) and linebacker DeVonte Holloman (neck) are all listed as probable.
Cornerback Morris Claiborne (hamstring) is the only Cowboy designated as out for Monday’s game, as he is still not healthy enough to play. Claiborne did not practice this week.
The Cowboys are holding out some hope that wide receiver Dwayne Harris (hamstring) can play after he worked out on a limited basis on Saturday.
For Chicago, quarterback Jay Cutler (ankle) is practicing, but has been ruled out for the game. Josh McCown, who has played well in Cutler’s place, will start. The Bears will also be without their star linebacker, Lance Briggs (shoulder) who did not work out this week.
Safety Anthony Walters (groin) is questionable. Guard Kyle Long (ankle), wide receiver Brandon Marshall (quadriceps) and safety Major Wright (hamstring) are probable.
The weather could be a factor for those players that are nursing hamstring injuries. The expected high in Chicago on Monday is 27 degrees, and the game time temperature could be in the teens.
