Dallas Cowboys linebacker Sean Lee didn’t practice Tuesday because of an illness. It is not considered serious and he is expected to be in the lineup when the Cowboys take the field Thursday against the Minnesota Vikings.

Lee is leading the Cowboys with 124 tackles.

Linebacker Justin Durant didn’t practice for the second straight day with a strained hamstring. He is unlikely to play against the Vikings.

Safety J.J. Wilcox will also miss the Vikings game as expected with a deep thigh bruise.

Defensive end David Irving was back at practice after being limited earlier in the week with an illness.

The good news for the Cowboys is that safety Barry Church practiced for a third straight day after missing the past four games with a fractured fore arm.

He wore padded brace on his forearm but has no limitations.
