Cowboys' Linebackers Lee And Durant Ruled Out For Thursday Night

Cowboys' Linebackers Lee And Durant Ruled Out For Thursday Night

And Lee, who re-injured his hamstring November 12 at Atlanta, isn't the only veteran linebacker the Cowboys will miss when they host the Redskins on Thursday Night Football.

The team announced their injury report on Wednesday, headlined by tight end Jordan Reed missing his fifth straight game due to a hamstring injury.

The Giants-Cowboys games have been such ratings catnip for the networks that they are nearly always played in prime time.

Dallas will also be without linebacker Justin Durant because he's in the concussion protocol. Hampered by injuries in the past, Reed hasn't played a full 16-game schedule since entering the league in 2013. He compiled 254 receptions for 2,114 yards and five touchdowns during his career. He was picked in the third round of the 2013 NFL Draft out of Florida. His favorite receiver is wide receiver Jamison Crowder, who has 46 catches for 561 yards and one touchdown. Moving the Giants-Cowboys game allows Fox to put that enticing showdown in more homes in the NY and Texas markets. He will likely be a game-time decision, but the time off should give way to the 29-year-old taking the field against the Cowboys.
