Found October 25, 2012 on Fox Sports Southwest:
There's no doubting that the Cowboys lost one of their most valuable players this week when it was announced Wednesday that Sean Lee was being placed on the injured reserve with a toe injury. Cowboys defensive coordinator Rob Ryan was so upset over losing the team's leading tackler that he was driven to tears, according to his brother, New York Jets coach Rex Ryan. While discussing Jets linebacker Bart Scott's toe injury on Wednesday, Rex Ryan said, "My brother was crying, literally, on the phone because they just lost their great linebacker to a toe injury." Rex Ryan, who is known for delivering witty remarks, could have been exaggerating. But knowing how valuable Lee is to the Cowboys' defensive game plan, he might have been telling the truth. Rob Ryan will likely give his side of the phone conversation on Friday, when he usually speaks with media members at Valley Ranch.
