Swelling goes down in Sean Lee's wrist

IRVING -- As the media period in the Cowboys locker room came to a close, inside linebacker Sean Lee emerged from the lunch room in a good mood.

The swelling in Lee's left wrist has gone down significantly. When a reporter said it looks as if the wrist is back to normal, Lee flexed his wrist up and down.

Lee played in last week's game vs. Buffalo with a cast, the shape of a Q-tip, and he started Wednesday's practice with a different cast where his fingers were exposed. But he went back into the trainers room and went back to the Q-tip type cast.

On Thursday, Lee wore the Q-tip cast and was a full participant in practice for the second consecutive day.

Lee missed just one game, Nov. 6 vs. Seattle, as he waited for the swelling to go down in the wrist. He played vs. the Bills the next week and was credited with five tackles.
