Dallas Cowboys linebacker Sean Lee has been out of practice since injuring his hamstring on Nov. 10. Earlier in the week, Lee had said that he will be ready to go for the team’s Week 14 match up against the Chicago Bears on Monday Night Football and he is now one step closer to achieving that.
Lee was present for his first practice since the injury on Thursday and he is now on track to be back in the line up on Monday night barring any setbacks.
In order to properly prepare for this week’s game, Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett has been saying that his team will practice outside so they are ready for any bad weather that could be coming their way in Chicago.
“We want to practice here, outside. The weather has been good to us, going off to play in some of these northern cities where the weather is bad. A couple of weeks ago against the Giants, we got some bad weather down here in the days leading up to that,” Garrett said, via the team’s website. “We thought that was a positive, just to get out and practice in it. And it sounds like the weather is not going to be great here the next couple of days, so we’ll certainly embrace that opportunity.”
Having Lee back is a huge boost for the Cowboys defense, but they may have even more positive news to celebrate.
Dallas could also be getting Justin Durant on Monday night, which puts the Cowboys linebacking corp back at full strength.
