Sean Lee Injury: Dallas Cowboys Linebacker Ruled Out Against Eagles

New, comments

Eagles-Cowboys injury report for Wednesday 12/25/2013.

Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

Much of the attention leading into this week's Eagles-Cowboys contest centers around the injury of Dallas quarterback Tony Romo. While the Cowboys haven't officially ruled out Romo, reports strongly indicate that he won't play.

The Cowboys will be without another key player when they face the Eagles: linebacker Sean Lee. When healthy, Lee is a very good linebacker. His presence in the Eagles-Cowboys game earlier in the year contributed to the Eagles' offensive failures that day. According to a report from ESPN Insider Adam Schefter, Lee has been ruled out of Sunday's game.

On the other hand, the Eagles are relatively healthy heading into their Week 17 finale against the Dallas Cowboys. Only two Eagles players did not practice. Depth safety and special teams contributor Colt Anderson sat out with a knee injury. Julian Vandervelde, the team's backup center, missed practice due to a back injury.

Everyone else was a full participant or better, including rookie safety Earl Wolff. Wolff did note on Tuesday that his knee felt sore, but it's a good sign to see that he's not missing practice.
