Cowboys LB Sean Lee (hamstring) returned to a limited practice on Wednesday.

It puts Lee on track to play Sunday against the Giants. His return will be a big boost to a Cowboys' defense that has struggled for much of the year. Injuries have limited Lee to only seven games this season.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones expects Sean Lee (hamstring) to return against the Giants in Week 14.

"He's feeling good," said Jones. "He's doing everything possible to be ready to go. I feel good about him." The Cowboys' defense hasn't looked the same since Lee went down with a hamstring injury in Week 10. When healthy, he's one of the league's best run defenders.

Cowboys declared WLB Sean Lee (hamstring) inactive for Week 13 against the Redskins.

Lee doesn't seem particularly close to a return. Even with 10 days to heal up, we would consider him highly questionable for Week 14. Also inactive for the Cowboys are CB Bene Benwikere, RB Trey Williams, LB Justin Durant, DE Datone Jones, DE Daniel Ross and TE Blake Jarwin.

Cowboys owners Jerry Jones said WLB Sean Lee (hamstring) will not play on Thanksgiving.

It is not a surprise with Lee expected to miss at least two more games. In better news, MLB Anthony Hitchens (groin) is expected to play on Thanksgiving.

The Dallas Morning News reports the Cowboys are bracing for WLB Sean Lee (hamstring) to miss the next three games.

Sources told beat writer Brandon George that Lee's likeliest return date is December 10 against the Giants. The Cowboys play three games in a forthcoming 12-day span, beginning with the Eagles this Sunday night, followed by the Chargers on Thanksgiving, and then another Thursday nighter against the Redskins. Lee is expected to miss all three with Week 14 against the G-Men as his target for return.

Cowboys WLB Sean Lee (hamstring) is not expected to play in Week 11 and is in danger of missing "several games."

He won't play against Philadelphia in Week 11, and is unlikely to be back for the Cowboys' Thanksgiving game in Week 12. Lee has battled hamstring problems all season long, and even when he was on the field in recent weeks, he could often be seen limping around. A true difference maker, Lee's absence improves the outlooks for all offenses facing the Cowboys going forward.

Cowboys LB Sean Lee left Sunday's Week 10 game against the Falcons with a hamstring injury and will not return.

He came up limping after being shoved aside by Falcons LT Jake Matthews late in the first quarter. Lee was originally questionable to return but you could tell from his body language that he wasn't coming back in. He recorded one tackle before exiting. It's worth noting that Lee missed two games with a similar injury earlier this year. This could be a multi-week injury.

Cowboys WLB Sean Lee (hamstring) is practicing fully for Week 7.

Lee is healthy coming off the Cowboys' bye. He's on track to play Sunday against the 49ers after missing two games. Lee's return is a huge upgrade to a struggling run defense.
Wed, Oct 18, 2017 06:49:00 PM

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.

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.
Sun, Oct 8, 2017 02:59:00 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.
Fri, Oct 6, 2017 12:14:00 PM

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.
Thu, Oct 5, 2017 12:56:00 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.
Sun, Oct 1, 2017 11:45:00 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.
