Sean Lee injury: Cowboys linebacker questionable to return, trainers looking at right toe

Tim Heitman-US PRESSWIRE

Dallas linebacker Sean Lee was injured in the third quarter and his day might be done as the Cowboys fall behind the Panthers.

Sean Lee, the leading tackler for the Cowboys this season, is questionable to return against the Panthers after an apparent right toe injury. Lee leads Dallas with 51 tackles coming into the game and has added six more solo tackles today against Carolina.

The Cowboys have had a difficult day in terms of player health, as wide receiver Dez Bryant receives concussion tests and center Phil Costa leaving the game with an ankle injury. Dallas was already without running back DeMarco Murray and defensive end Sean Lissemore coming into today. It appears that some of the Ravens' bad luck has rubbed off on the Cowboys after their 31-29 loss to Baltimore in Week 6.

Dallas being without Lee for an extended period of time could be a serious blow to the 2-3 Cowboys. It was going to be difficult enough for Dallas to hold their slim lead over the Panthers without Lee, and Carolina took a 14-13 lead early in the fourth quarter.
