Cowboys LB Sean Lee says his latest injury is just a minor one
Dallas Cowboys linebacker Sean Lee has been sitting out of practice since suffering a knee injury. Fortunately, he does not appear to be too discouraged by the recent blow to his health.
According to Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Lee does not deem the injury to be too serious and is optimistic about a return in the near future.
“I know I’m progressing and feeling good about it,” Lee said. “I’m sure I’ll be out here at some point pretty soon.
Lee is certainly no stranger to injuries, whether they are minor or significant. He added that he is taking the same approach he usually does.
“It’s always frustrating, but I’ve gotten to the point to where I’m mature enough to look ahead and not let the frustration mess with my preparation.”
Lee has always struggled with durability issues throughout his career. The last two seasons have been no exception after missing a combined 15 games due to lingering hamstring issues.
Fortunately, the Cowboys find themselves in a position where they no longer have to rely on Lee as much as they used to. They now boast one of the most promising, young linebacker duos in the league with Jaylon Smith and Leighton Vander Esch. Lee now provides some quality depth behind these two young stars while serving as a stabilizing factor on special teams.
Considering his track record, the veteran will continue to struggle with staying at 100 percent for the Cowboys. Regardless, Lee could still see a substantial amount of snaps if he can get healthy once the regular season rolls around.
