The injury concerns go beyond the quarterback position for the Cowboys this week.
Star receiver Dez Bryant reportedly tweaked his back in practice on Christmas Day. More from PFT.
Wide receiver Dez Bryant tweaked his back at practice on Wednesday and earned a limited designation from the team for his work during the session. Calvin Watkins of ESPNDallas.com reports that the team does not believe it is anything serious, but Bryant’s got a history of back issues that have hampered him over the years.
Bryant was able to practice Thursday.
Starting middle linebacker Sean Lee has been ruled out of Sunday night’s game, per Adam Schefter.
“Obviously one of the top linebackers in the game,” said Chip Kelly. “In nine games he has 99 tackles and four interceptions. And seeing him up close and personal when we played him in October, he was all over the field. He’s as good of a linebacker as there is in this league. But you have tape on what their defense is like without Sean in there because he’s been out for a little bit here.” Read more »
Here is the Eagles’ injury report for Sunday night’s home game against the Bears:
Out: S Colt Anderson (knee), S Kurt Coleman (hamstring)
Probable: CB Brandon Boykin (concussion), LB Najee Goode (hamstring), LB Mychal Kendricks (knee), WR Brad Smith (hamstring), S Earl Wolff (knee)
The most significant piece of news is that Boykin made it through the concussion protocol and is expected to play against Chicago. That’s big, particularly because standout wide receiver Brandon Marshall will line up in the slot from time to time.
Also of note is that Wolff will likely make his return after missing several weeks with a knee injury. Billy Davis plans on easing Wolff back in, so don’t expect him to be taking all the reps at safety opposite Nate Allen. He will likely rotate with Patrick Chung. Read more »
