The Dallas Cowboys placed linebacker Sean Lee on
injured reserve Wednesday.
Lee suffered a toe injury in the second half of the Cowboys' 19-14 victory
over the Carolina Panthers last Sunday, and will undergo surgery on Tuesday to
repair torn ligaments.
The third-year pro was Dallas' leading tackler this season with 58. He also
had an interception.
The Cowboys also placed punter Chris Jones on IR with a knee sprain and signed
linebacker Ernie Sims and safety Charlie Peprah.
Sims, whom the Detroit Lions selected with the ninth-overall pick in the 2006
draft, spent last season with the Indianapolis Colts, registering 32 tackles.
Peprah had 74 tackles and five interceptions through 16 games (14 starts) with
the Green Bay Packers last season.
