FRISCO, Texas –Linebacker Sean Lee isn't expected to play Thursday against the L.A. Chargers, but three other injured Cowboys starters – left tackle Tyron Smith, linebacker Anthony Hitchens and kicker Dan Bailey – could be back for the Thanksgiving Day game.
"Sean Lee won't be there this week, but the other three, they've got a chance to play," Cowboys owner/general manager Jerry Jones said Tuesday on 105.3 The Fan.
The Cowboys are scheduled to practice Tuesday after holding a walkthrough Monday, less than 24 hours after their 37-9 home loss to the Eagles.
Quarterback Dak Prescott has been sacked 12 times in the last two games without Smith (groin) at left tackle.
Bailey (groin) has missed the last four games but said he felt good after kicking in pregame this past Sunday.
Hitchens (groin) got injured in the fourth quarter against the Eagles but was optimistic Monday about his chances of playing against the Chargers.
