Sean Lee hoping for good news on his wrist injury

Emerging Dallas Cowboys defensive leader Sean Lee will have an MRI on his left wrist today to determine the seriousness of his injury.

Lee left Sunday night’s loss at Philadelphia at the end of the first quarter and did not return. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said the initial diagnosis was a dislocated wrist, according to ESPN Dallas. Lee was injured trying to tackle Eagles quarterback Michael Vick in the 34-7 setback.

"I'm hoping I could play next week," Lee said afterward. "I couldn't return tonight. The doctors would not let me out there. Hopefully I can get it re-evaluated and it'll be all right."

Lee was replaced by veterans Keith Brooking and Bradie James. The former Penn State standout leads the defense in tackles.
