Jenkins, Jones, Lee Not Practicing Thursday

It's starting to look as if three key starters could miss Sunday's game with the Seahawks, including linebacker Sean Lee, who missed his second straight practice with a dislocated left wrist.

Late Wednesday afternoon, talk around Valley Ranch suggested Lee could possibly play and even practice by the end of the week, if the swelling on his left wrist subsided enough. If so, Lee would be fitted for a protective cast and could function the same, albeit somewhat restricted in his left hand.

Lee has said all week he would like to play against Seattle, but would trust the doctors and training staff to make the smart decision and not risk further injury.

As for Felix Jones and Mike Jenkins, it doesn't appear either player will be suited out to face Seattle. Jones has missed two games with a high-ankle sprain, meaning rookies DeMarco Murray and Phillip Tanner will carry the load this week.

Jenkins suffered a hamstring injury late in the Eagles game last week. Orlando Scandrick will start at right cornerback, but expect Alan Ball and Frank Walker to play more in the nickel and dime packages.

Guard Kyle Kosier, who did not practice on Wednesday because of a foot injury, returned on Thursday and is expected to start again on the right side.
