Jerry Jones thinks Sean Lee playing on Thanksgiving is 'optimistic'

The Dallas Cowboys got some defensive players back after the bye week for their  game against the New York Giants. The Cowboys won that hard fought game and could get another defensive player back for the Thanksgiving match up against the Oakland Raiders, linebacker Sean Lee.

“That’s probably optimistic,” Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones told KRLD-FM, via The Dallas Morning News. “He thinks he’s got a chance, but Sean’s one of the most optimistic players there has ever been on the Dallas Cowboys. But that’s probably optimistic.”

Earlier, this month Jones called Lee Superman and said that he felt like Lee could come back sooner than expected.

“Sean is Superman, and I mean it,” Jones said, via ESPN Dallas. “I remember back before the draft, ESPN did a special on him and I think members of his team called him God.

“But he has such a will if anybody can come back sooner than what you oughta be coming back from he can do it. He’s rehabbing at the most intense level you can. If anybody can get back here in a couple of weeks, he can do it.”
