Cowboys linebacker Sean Lee missed Tuesday’s practice because he was sick, but the feeling around the team was that he’d be ready to go for their Thursday night game against the Vikings.

Wednesday brought support for that feeling. Lee was a full participant in the team’s final practice before they hit the field in Minnesota, which led to a questionable designation on their final injury report but no sign that Lee will wind up on the wrong side of a game-time decision.

Safety Barry Church got the same tag after three days of limited practice, but is expected to make his return after missing four games with a broken forearm. He’s been replaced in the lineup by J.J. Wilcox, but Wilcox won’t play because of a thigh injury.

Cornerback Morris Claiborne remains out with a groin injury and tackle Chaz Green will miss the game with a back injury. Left tackle Tyron Smith and defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence have been listed as questionable, although there have been no indications that they’re at risk of missing the game.
