Sean Lee misses practice, teammates say he’s not playing Sunday

The Packers won’t have Aaron Rodgers in the lineup against the Cowboys on Sunday and it appears the Cowboys won’t have linebacker Sean Lee leading their defensive effort against Matt Flynn.

Lee did not practice on Friday because of the neck injury that knocked him out of last weekend’s game against the Bears and Calvin Watkins of ESPNDallas.com reports that several of Lee’s teammates said the linebacker will not play this weekend. Defensive end DeMarcus Ware said it came as a surprise since Lee and the Cowboys have been optimistic all week that he’d be able to play.

“I was surprised,” Ware said. “I just saw him in the meeting and I was like ‘Hey what’s wrong? You alright?’ He was a little bit upset but things happen and you gotta keep rolling.”

The good news for the Cowboys is that they are 2-0 playing without Lee this year while the Packers are 1-4-1 playing without Rodgers. Should those trends hold, the Cowboys will end Sunday with their shot at the NFC East title still very much within reach.

    Without Aaron Rodgers playing, look for this game to be a complete blowout on the depleted Packers team.

    Cowboys 45
    Packers 3

    What else is new? Head up tackling could have prevented this!

    Oh good, another reason for Jerry to call out Lee.

    Dig deep and win in the trenches for me, boys. I’ll be doing the same here in Wisco with my neighbors.

    Wait where are all the Dallas fans that were talking about how great Tony Romo is?

    How this is a different team?

    Here come the December QUITTERS, yet again.

    OH REALLY???? If you knew what you were talking about you would be dangerous! Lee had a player fall into his neck as he was finishing A TEXTBOOK tackle!

    Oh no, I think Jerruh just called another press conference.

    I like my PSU players but hate when they play for Dallas.

    Go Pack!

    Maybe his teams fake GM’s son call call out his 2nd best defensive player again. That will motivate Lee to get out there faster. Joke.

    Another attempt by Goodell, jealous and bitter of the two straight superbowls his hometown Bills lost to Dallas in the 90’s, to keep Dallas down. No doubt Lee is perfectly healthy but all doctors in the Dallas area have been paid handsomely out of Goodell’s pockets to keep him out of the game, because he wants to keep Dallas from winnin.

    NOTHING is a given with these Dallas Cowboys!!

    That defense has plucked my nerve for the last time (MNF) and I would not be surprised if Matt Flynn or who ever the qb is has the performance of a lifetime!!!

    I have lost all faith in this Cowboys team!

    Lee, your such a quitter! Stop crying and get back in there! – Little Skeletor

    Did you see the hit he took? I’m sure his neck hurts. The conspiracy theories don’t really work that well, because money > all. A Sunday Night Football flex game between the Cowboys and the Eagles – win-or-go-home-game is amazing for ratings. Only thing the Cowboys have going for them is that Rodgers is out as well.

    This is a bummer. When Lee is feeling 100% he’s a playmaker.

    Win with Flynn. Stay Calm and Carry On.
