After weeks of suffering through injuries to key players, the Dallas Cowboys are again looking as healthy as they’ve ever been.
That’s not to say they’re without concerns because although they’re looking forward to the potential return of All-Pro linebacker, they have other star players who aren’t exactly holding a clean bill of health. Lee returned to practice for the first time in nearly a month only to find players like La’El Collins and Orlando Scandrick on the sidelines.
Collins is dealing with a “slight” bulging disc that held him out of practice last week as well, while Scandrick works to return from two fractured tranverse processes he received courtesy of the Washington Redskins in Week 13. He’d finish the game but it was clear he was a shell of himself in the process, and his status for Week 14 vs. the New York Giants is very much up in the air — while Collins will likely take the field, needing rest more so than actual treatment.
The Cowboys are also keeping an eye on pass rush specialist David Irving, who has been placed in concussion protocol. The team discovered after their win over the Redskins that Irving had suffered a head injury, so sitting him for Wednesday’s practice was not optional. The team is operating on a mini-bye week though, so the added days work in his favor as it relates to potentially playing on Sunday.
