NFL Network's Jane Slater reports Sean Lee (hamstring) participated in Wednesday's practice.
The Cowboys are on bye this week, so they do not have to release a practice report. That said, Lee getting in any work is a great sign he will be ready to go Week 7. Getting Lee back would be a big boost for a struggling defense. Oct 12 - 10:52 AM

Cowboys WLB Sean Lee (hamstring) is inactive for Week 5 against the Packers.

It is a big blow to a defense having to face one of the best quarterbacks in the league. Lee will have a shot to return against the 49ers following the bye week. In better news, both LT Tyron Smith (back) and RT La'el Collins (ankle) are good to go. Dallas also declared DT Stephen Paea (knee), QB Cooper Rush, Darren McFadden, CB Nolan Carroll, S Kavon Frazier, and WR Noah Brown inactive for Week 5.
Oct 8 - 2:59 PM

Cowboys WLB Sean Lee (hamstring) is expected to be out 2-3 weeks.

The word comes from Jerry Jones' mouth. Lee will obviously miss this week against the Packers and has been sidelined since pulling his hammy in Week 3. Lee is one of the Cowboys' best run defenders on a subpar defense.

Sean Lee (hamstring) did not practice Thursday.

With a bye week up next, the Cowboys likely will be careful with Lee to avoid a long-term injury. It would be surprising if he suits up against the Packers.
Oct 5 - 12:56 PM

Cowboys declared LB Sean Lee, DE Charles Tapper, RB Darren McFadden, QB Cooper Rush, CBs Chidobe Awuzie and Nolan Carroll, and LB Anthony Hitchens inactive for Week 4 against the Rams.

Lee couldn't make it happen on a short week after straining his hamstring in last Monday night's win over the Cardinals. It's a plus for Todd Gurley.
Oct 1 - 11:45 AM

Cowboys LB Sean Lee (questionable, hamstring) is not expected to play Sunday against the Rams.

Per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Cowboys will "err on the side of caution" with Lee, who was absent from practice all week. Lee is perennially among the league's best run-stopping linebackers, so this is a boost for Todd Gurley's outlook.
Oct 1 - 8:12 AM

Cowboys WLB Sean Lee (hamstring, questionable) missed practice again on Friday.

Coach Jason Garrett declined to rule out Lee following Friday's workout, but he's not trending in the right direction after missing the entirety of the practice week. If Lee can't play against the Rams, Todd Gurley's outlook would improve.
Sep 29 - 2:35 PM

Cowboys LB Sean Lee (hamstring) did not practice on Wednesday.

Lee suffered the injury on Monday night and was not able to finish the game. He also dealt with a hamstring issue over the summer. Dallas would have to turn to Justin Durant if Lee cannot play this week.
Sep 28 - 10:01 AM

The Cowboys have restructured WLB Sean Lee's contract, creating $5 million in space.

The Cowboys are the kings of kicking the salary cap can down the road. Most of Lee's $7 million salary was likely converted to a signing bonus that can be prorated over the final three years of his deal. Healthy for all of 2016, Lee turned in a first-team All-Pro campaign. He turns 31 in July.
Mar 7 - 2:45 PM

Cowboys WLB Sean Lee, RB Ezekiel Elliott, LT Tyron Smith, C Travis Frederick, and RG Zack Martin were all named first-team All-Pros on Friday.

Dallas led the way with five first-team All-Pro selections, followed by the Chiefs with four. Lee played all but three snaps this season before being rested in Week 17 and graded out as Pro Football Focus' No. 2-ranked 4-3 outside linebacker. Rounding out the first-team All-Pro defense is EDGE Khalil Mack, EDGE Vic Beasley, DT Aaron Donald, DT Damon Harrison, LB Von Miller, LB Bobby Wagner, CB Aqib Talib, CB Marcus Peters, CB Chris Harris, S Eric Berry, and S Landon Collins. On special teams, it was K Justin Tucker, P Johnny Hekker, KR Cordarrelle Patterson, PR Tyreek Hill, and ST Matthew Slater.
Jan 6 - 12:45 PM

Cowboys WLB Sean Lee (knee) returned to practice Monday.

Lee had an MRI on his knee last week, but the injury was never considered serious. Still, any issue is a concern for a player with Lee's history. He should be ready for Week 1.

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.
Wed, Aug 31, 2016 07:25:00 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.
Wed, Aug 31, 2016 09:46:00 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.
Tue, Aug 30, 2016 11:41:00 AM

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.
