The Dallas Cowboys got a scare last night when it looked like they were going to lose middle linebacker Sean Lee to injury again this season. He got hit on top of his head while trying to make a tackle and left the game. He eventually left and went to the locker room and the announcers initially called it a stinger.

Lee underwent MRIs on Tuesday following the loss on Monday Night Football to the Chicago Bears.

The Cowboys and Lee got good news when the results came back. ESPN’s Ed Werder reported that there was no structural damage in his neck and that Lee was suffering from soreness and stiffness in neck. Werder also reported that Lee should be good to go next week agains the Green Bay Packers.

The Cowboys need all hands on deck as they look to finish strong to win an NFC East title and a wild card berth. Quarterback Tony Romo said the Cowboys need to run the table.
