Lee, Jones Sit Out; Kosier Limited Wed.

The first practice since last week's 34-7 loss to the Eagles saw a few key players not on the field Wednesday at Valley Ranch.

Most notably, running back Felix Jones, who has now missed two straight games with a high-ankle sprain, was not in attendance and wasn't working with the athletic trainers or the strength and conditioning staff during the early portion of practice.

With the Cowboys cutting Tashard Choice on Saturday, leaving just rookies DeMarco Murray and Phillip Tanner as the only healthy backs on the roster, it seemed as if Jones might be ready to return to practice this week. While Jones could practice Thursday or Friday, it seems likely at this point that Murray would get his second straight start Sunday against Seattle.

Linebacker Sean Lee missed Wednesday's practice with a dislocated left wrist. Lee visited a hand specialist on Monday and he wasn't ruling out the possibility of playing against Seattle. That would depend on how much swelling decreased in his wrist and how limited he would be wearing a protective cast.

"If I can get it wrapped up and not worry about hurting it more than it is, I'd play (Sunday)," Lee said. "I just have to be smart about it."

And for the third straight week, right guard Kyle Kosier was only limited in practice. He worked with the starting five at the beginning of practice but went back into the training room once the team went into its stretching period. Kosier has been limited for the last three Wednesdays of practice with a foot injury.
