Dallas Cowboys injury update: Sean Lee wants to return in Week 17

The Dallas Cowboys really have to beat the Washington Redskins in Week 16 if they want a realistic chance of heading into Week 17 with a shot at the playoffs. According to the Cowboys' official website on Dec. 19, Sean Lee hopes Dallas makes it to that point because he wants to make his return from injury in that game.

Lee is the best player on the Cowboys' defense, but has had trouble staying healthy through his career. This year he has missed a number of games, first with a stinger and now with hamstring problems. Without Lee in the defense, the Cowboys have been unable to stop the run and that does not bode well against the Redskins this weekend.

However, despite already being ruled out for the game, Lee said he hopes he will be available for the season finale. If Dallas beats Washington on Sunday, they will play Philadelphia in Week 17 and the winner will make the playoffs while the loser will go home.

Lee has been rehabbing his injuries and said that upward trajectory has him on pace to make it into the final game of the season and a chance to finally get Dallas over that hump.

Cornerback Morris Claiborne, who will miss Week 16 as well, also said that he hopes to make his return for that regular season finale and Terrance Williams, the wide receiver who was the latest to injure his hamstring, also returned to practice this week and might surprisingly be ready to play against Washington.
