The Dallas Cowboys watched star middle linebacker Sean Lee go down with a neck injury on Monday Night Football against the Chicago Bears, in his return to the field for the first time in a few weeks since sustaining a hamstring injury.
Lee was forced to undergo an MRI on Tuesday to determine the full extent of the injury, and it looks like he avoided any serious issues.
With the Cowboys needing to win in order to keep their hopes at the postseason alive, they will sorely need Lee on the field next weekend for a pivotal game against the Green Bay Packers. Luckily, it looks like that will be the case and Lee is not expected to miss significant time.
Calvin Watkins of ESPN Dallas passed along the news:
Sean Lee has a neck strain and is day-to-day and has a good chance to play vs Packers.

Throughout the week, we will see how Lee responds to the injury at practice, so keep a close eye out to see how he is recovering to get a better idea if he will be returning to the team on Sunday or if the putrid Cowboys defense will be without their top player.
