The Cowboys are missing linebackers Sean Lee and Ernie Sims, along with CB Morris Claiborne and kick returner Dwayne Harris against the Redskins.
The eighth-year pro leads a struggling defense into an important NFC East game at the New York Giants on Sunday. It’s perhaps as close to the spotlight as Sims has been since starting his first 50 games as a top 10 pick by Detroit.
The Dallas Cowboys have re-signed linebacker Ernie Sims to a one-year deal worth a reported $715,000.
Ernie Sims and Brady Poppinga joined the Cowboys from the NFL scrap heap. They could now end up playing important parts in trying to salvage a season.
Dallas Cowboys leading tackler Sean Lee has been placed on injured reserve and will miss the rest of the season because of a right big toe injury.
