If things weren’t bad enough for the Dallas Cowboys defense after being shredded by the New Orleans Saints on Monday Night Football, they just got even worse. Star linebacker Sean Lee left the game early with a leg injury, but now we know the full extent.
According to various reports, Lee will miss three to four weeks as he recovers from a hamstring injury.
From Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports:
More bad news for Cowboys defense: The MVP of that unit, LB Sean Lee, to miss 3-4 weeks with his hamstring injury suffered Sunday night

Lee is the heart and soul of that defense and he makes them worlds better when he is in the ball game.
Unfortunately, Dallas will need to find a way to fill the void left by Lee as they charge forward and attempt to keep their slim lead in the NFC East.
Defense is the biggest problem for the Cowboys, so they need to rise to the occasion and do what they can to make up for the loss of a man that was having an All-Pro season.
