The first word out of Dallas Cowboys practice today isn't looking good for three key starters on Wednesday. Felix Jones was nowhere to be found in the Cowboys facility, and although its possible that Jones could practice on Thursday or Friday, it seems highly likely that the rookie from Oklahoma Demarco Murray will be the starter versus the Seattle Seahawks. Jones is still sidelined with a high ankle sprain that he suffered versus the New England Patriots a few weeks ago.
For Sean Lee, the future of his season is officially up in the air. Lee missed practice on Wednesday, as on Monday the linebacker went to go visit a hand specialist to get a better idea of his injury. Lee had mentioned that he planned on playing through the injury for the entirety of the season, but some doctors thought that his hand injury would cause him to miss the season altogether.
"I'm going to exhaust every opportunity to play as soon as possible," Lee told ESPNDallas.com before going into the trainer's room Wednesday. "Obviously, I want to play. I'm here to play football, and I'll do whatever it takes to play. At the same point, I have to listen to doctors on what I'm able to do and whether is going to be functional."
Starting right guard Kyle Kosier was also a limited participant in practice, as he ran with the first team for a large portion of practice before leaving with trainers during the team's stretching period. Kosier's been bothered by a foot injury for the last three weeks.
