Cowboys WLB Sean Lee has restructured his contract.

Lee will convert $2 million of his salary into a bonus. It doesn’t save Dallas money this year, but is a nice reward after Lee bounced back last season. Lee can also earn $2 million in incentives.
Aug 31 - 7:25 PM

Bryan Broaddus of the Cowboys' official website believes WLB Sean Lee (knee) will be ready for Week 1 against the Giants.

Lee required an MRI on Monday, but tests came back negative. He's probably more day to day, but any injury for Lee is worth noting since he's missed so much time with ailments over the years. He's the key to the Dallas defense.
Aug 31 - 9:46 AM

Cowboys WLB Sean Lee is sidelined with a knee injury.

He had an MRI on Monday, but coach Jason Garrett says the results were "positive," likely meaning the test results were negative. It does not sound like Lee is dealing with a serious injury, but it is another reminder of his injury history. Already down several key members of the front seven, Dallas cannot afford to be without Lee.

Cowboys WLB Sean Lee said his surgically-repaired knee is 100 percent.

Lee has shown no lingering effects from offseason surgery and said his knee felt great at Saturday's practice. There's been speculation he could move inside to replace suspended MLB Rolando McClain, but Lee said he doesn't anticipate moving from the weak side.

Cowboys WLB Sean Lee (knee surgery) would "be shocked" if he is not ready for the start of training camp.

Lee underwent a "clean-up scope" on his knee in April. He was always expected back for camp, but it is good to get some confirmation. Lee remains one of the better linebackers in the league when healthy.
Jun 9 - 2:30 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Cowboys WLB Sean Lee underwent a "clean-up scope" on his knee this week.

The surgery carries a two-week recovery. Lee should not be limited much if at all in the offseason program, but it is another reminder of his extensive injury history. With Lee on the weak side, Rolando McClain in the middle and second-round pick Jaylon Smith (knee) on the sideline, the Cowboys have a high-upside but low-floor linebacking group.
Apr 30 - 9:05 AM

Cowboys WLB Sean Lee (hamstring, questionable) could lose $2 million if he does not play Week 17.

Lee showed up on the injury report with a hamstring injury after missing Friday's practice. Lee has playing time bonuses in his contract which would increase his base salary from $3 million to $5 million if he plays 80 percent of the defensive snaps. He currently sits at 82.1 percent, but missing Week 17 would likely drop him below the threshold. Lee will obviously do everything possible to be ready this week.

Cowboys WLB Sean Lee has passed through the NFL's concussion protocol.

He'll practice on Wednesday and should be all systems go for Week 11 against the Dolphins. Through eight appearances this season, Lee has 66 tackles, a sack, and an interception. His return is big for Dallas' defense.

Cowboys declared WLB Sean Lee (concussion) inactive for Week 10 against the Bucs.

Lee is week to week. We wouldn't automatically assume he'll be ready for Week 11. Also inactive for the Cowboys are WR Brice Butler, RB Trey Williams, TE Geoff Swaim, DE Ryan Russell, OG Ronald Leary and DB Corey White.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said WLB Sean Lee (concussion) is "probably doubtful" for Week 10 against the Bucs.

Lee suffered a concussion early in the second half against the Eagles Sunday night. He played the week after suffering a concussion against the Saints earlier this year, but it sounds like this situation could be more serious. With Anthony Hitchens (ankle) also banged up, Andrew Gachkar could earn the start Sunday.
