The big questions following the Dallas Cowboys 27-7 loss to the Atlanta Falcons heading towards the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday are these; what do the Dallas Cowboys do if Sean Lee can't play on Sunday against the Eagles, what do the Cowboys do if Tyron Smith can't play on Sunday against the Eagles? Both of these players are anchors on offense and defense.
Sunday, November 19th, marks the day where the Philadelphia Eagles return from a bye week and pay their divisional rivals a visit on Sunday Night Football.
As for the middle linebacker spot, Sean Lee strained his hamstring early in the game.
At Monday's press conference, head coach Jason Garrett said he saw Lee Monday morning and that he doesn't expect him to "immediately" practice this week, adding, "it might take some time, we'll see". It might be some time. Lee has battled injuries this season and throughout his career missing 23 games in his career.
Last Sunday, Falcons defensive end Adrian Clayborne went off on Smith's replacement, backup left guard Chaz Green. They produced eighteen sacks over the first eight games. Clearly the best run defending linebacker the Cowboys had this week, Anthony Hitchens played with a burst we haven't seen from him since maybe his rookie year.
The Cowboys will need these two players going forward but having three games in the 12 days will not be an easy task.
