Dallas Cowboys star linebacker Sean Lee was expected to miss at least a month with a hamstring injury that he suffered a couple of weeks ago, which was a devastating blow to the team’s already struggling defense.
However, as far as team owner Jerry Jones is concerned, Lee should be able to come back sooner than his time frame for recovery initially suggested.
“Sean is Superman, and I mean it,” Jones said, via 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.”
If Jones’ optimism leads to reality, the Cowboys defense will get a big boost when Lee is able to return.
Dallas is currently locked in a dog fight in the NFC East, so any help they can get will be welcomed.
