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.
Nov 16 - 4:24 PM

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.
Nov 15 - 11:41 AM

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.
Nov 10 - 10:00 AM

Cowboys WLB Sean Lee was forced from Sunday night's Week 9 game with a concussion.

Lee was injured on the Cowboys’ first series of the second half. He also had a Week 4 concussion, but didn’t miss any time. Anthony Hitchens replaced Lee.
Nov 8 - 10:35 PM

Cowboys WLB Sean Lee (concussion) has been cleared to play Sunday against the Patriots.

He missed the second half of last week's game with a concussion but has practiced the last two days without any issues. Lee owns PFF's second-highest 4-3 outside linebacker grade this season. That's out of 31 qualifiers.
Oct 9 - 2:07 PM

Cowboys WLB Sean Lee (concussion) was cleared to practice on Thursday.

Lee suffered a concussion in the second quarter against the Saints Sunday night. He is on track to play this week against the Patriots. The Cowboys will also have MLB Rolando McClain and DE Greg Hardy back off suspension.
Oct 8 - 12:59 PM

Cowboys WLB Sean Lee was forced from Sunday night's Week 4 game with a concussion.

Lee took a helmet-to-helmet hit in the second quarter. He's done for the night. Damien Wilson replaced Lee on the weak side.
Oct 4 - 9:21 PM

Cowboys WLB Sean Lee is a big reason why the Dallas defense ranks 2nd for yards allowed (257.5 ypg).

Lee has been one of the most injury-prone players in the game, missing 36 games in his five-year career, but a shift to playing on the weakside will hopefully keep him healthy in 2015. His 14 total tackles and an interception in Week 2 prompted owner Jerry Jones to comment, "You couldn't talk about our defense without talking about the difference and the impact he's making". A healthy Lee is a top-five fantasy linebacker. If he plays 16 games, he could be the No.1.
Sep 26 - 6:01 AM

Cowboys WLB Sean Lee has been named the NFC Defensive Player of the Week for Week 2.

We don't typically post Player of the Week blurbs, but may start since it gives us an opportunity to hit on some defensive players who typically don't get blurbed up as often as they probably should. Lee amassed 13 tackles and was credited with nine stops against the Eagles last Sunday, drawing elite marks from Pro Football Focus for both his run defense and coverage. Lee's addition to the Cowboys' defense after missing all of 2014 and part of 2013 gives them back their anchor. He's PFF's top-ranked 4-3 outside linebacker through two weeks.
Sep 23 - 10:14 AM

The Dallas Morning News expects Sean Lee to stick at WLB despite the four-game suspension of MLB Rolando McClain.

The Cowboys moved Lee to the weak side in an effort to keep him healthy, and they are unlikely to change the plan simply because McClain will miss four games. Jasper Brinkley will get the first crack at replacing McClain. Anthony Hitchens is penciled in as the starter at strong-side 'backer.

Cowboys WLB Sean Lee (knee) participated in team drills at Tuesday's practice.

He was limited to individual work at OTAs. Lee looked sharp Tuesday, even catching Jason Witten for a touchdown-saving tackle during 11-on-11 drills. The 28-year-old finished with PFF's seventh-highest inside linebacker grade in 2013. That was Lee's last healthy season.
Jun 16 - 2:15 PM

Cowboys WLB Sean Lee says he played the first four years of his career with a left ACL that was "80 percent" torn.

Lee suffered the injury his senior year at Penn State. "I always knew it was a matter of time before that thing probably went," Lee said of his knee. Lee has dealt with all manner of injury through five years in the NFL, but is back to 100 percent heading into 2015. One month shy of his 29th birthday, Lee has All-Pro upside if he can figure out a way to stay on the field.
