Q: Adam, what are you hearing on Sean Lee? Is he out for the year? What kind of impact does that have on the Dallas Cowboys' defense and their playoff chances?
-- Tom (Connecticut)
A: Done for the year, Tom. Lee needs surgery on his big toe. It's a real painful injury, one that can threaten a player's career. Felix Jones once had the surgery and bounced back from it, and the Cowboys believe Lee will do the same. It just won't be this season. It's a big loss for the Cowboys, who are losing their leading tackler and a playmaking linebacker. Lee has been one of the NFL's most underrated players.
Q: I'm a Tennessee Titans fan who is excited for Jake Locker's career, but how can the coaches not stick with Matt Hasselbeck right now? With the AFC wild-card race wide open and his playoff credentials, why not take a chance and see if he can catch lightning in a bottle? He's earned it, right?
-- Seth (Tennessee)
