Gerald Sensabaugh and Sean Lee Suffer Concussions in Dallas Win Over Washington Redskins

There has been a myriad of injuries in Dallas lately. Just this past week, wide receiver Kevin Ogletree was put on injured reserve due to turf toe. Dez Bryant, the standout rookie receiver, was put on I.R. as well due to a fractured right ankle. This past week, Roy Williams suffered a groin injury and missed the Redskins game, so Sam Hurd, a backup receiver, started opposite Miles Austin.

Now Dallas has two more problems. Both rookie linebacker Sean Lee, and starting safety Gerald Sensabaugh suffered concussions in the second quarter of the game yesterday.

Lee was hit by two blockers while covering on a kickoff and he was just laid out. He says that he can't recall getting off the field according to reports on However, he believes that he'll be fine for the game on Saturday in Arizona. If not, Dallas will substitute him on special teams with a reserve linebacker.

The same goes for Gerald Sensabaugh. According to Todd Archer's blog on, Sensabaugh could not remember either the sack he had against Rex Grossman or the interception he recorded. However, he believes that he will still be able to play this Saturday.

Losing Sensabaugh would be greater than losing Lee due to Sensabaugh being a starter, and the secondary for Dallas is thin and vulnerable as it is now. Putting in rookie Barry Church, an undrafted safety from Toledo, would not be a favorable situation for the Cowboys.

James Williamson's thoughts: I'm not a doctor, and I don't own anything that could resemble a medical degree, but I do know that some concussions are worse than others, and I also know that players may express optimism about playing even if the best option is to not play. I won't count them out or in until more tests are done this week.
