The Dallas Cowboys have been without star linebacker Sean Lee for the past few weeks, as he was recovering from a hamstring injury. However, the Cowboys can now be take a deep breath with the news that Lee is set to return this week when they take on the Chicago Bears on Monday Night Football.
Lee had been out for three straight weeks with the hamstring injury, but he was a full participant in practice for three straight days this week.
The return of Lee is an obvious boost for the Cowboys defense, which will need to step up in a big way in order to slow down Bears wide receivers Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery. Dallas could also retain their slim lead in the NFC East with another big win.
Lee is officially listed as probably on the team’s practice report, which means he will be able to re-enter the starting line up barring a late and unforeseen setback.
