Before the bye week, Dallas Cowboys middle linebacker Sean Lee injured his hamstring against the New Orleans Saints. The time table for his return was three to four weeks but Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones said he thinks that Lee could return faster.
“Sean is Superman and I mean it,” Jones said on 105.3 The Fan [KRLD-FM], via the ESPN Dallas. “I remember back before the draft, ESPN did a special on him and I think members of his team called him God.
“But he has such a will if anybody can come back sooner than what you oughta be coming back from he can do it. He’s rehabbing at the most intense level you can. If anybody can get back here in a couple of weeks, he can do it.”
The Cowboys need all the help on defense they can get, injuries have plagued that unit. They lost defensive end Anthony Spencer early in the season. Defensive tackle Jason Hatcher missed the game against the Saints. DeMarcus Ware has been fighting injuries. If Lee returns that would be a big bump to the defensive unit.
Jones also thinks wide receiver Miles Austin will be back.
“He’s had a good practice out there on Monday,” Jones said.. “I think he was actually ready to go against New Orleans [Nov. 10], and he probably could have gone earlier. But we really wanted to be conservative on that to the end.”
