Cowboys LB Lee wants to play despite wrist injury

Cowboys linebacker Sean Lee is a warrior without question.

“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.”

The question is: How effective will Lee be if he plays with a cast?

“The plan is to try to play in a cast, but that also depends on how I heal and how functional I am,” Lee said. “I’m working to get better right now. I’m going to do whatever I can to get ready for this game. I’m going to assess it toward the end of the week and see how the hand and wrist function and whether I’m ready to go.”

At the end of the day, I’m sure the Penn State alum could find some way to contribute even if he’s playing with a significant wrist injury – because let’s face it, he’s found a way to contribute each and every Sunday for Rob Ryan’s defense.
