During the first day of the Dallas Cowboys’ OTAs, linebacker Sean Lee had to be helped from the field with an injury, something that the Cowboys have become all too familiar with.
Lee is having his left knee evaluated, but the severity of the injury is not known a this time. Dallas Morning News reporter Jon Machota was on hand to get reactions from Lee’s coaches and teammates.
When question by reporters, Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett said he “did not want to speculate” on Lee being out for the season, and that he didn’t have a clear view of the play that caused him to go down.
Lee’s coach, defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli, echoed Garrett’s statement, saying “You don’t want to see any man go down like that. Wait and see, see how it is.”
Teammate Morris Claiborne apparently saw the play, and watched Lee go down to the turf. “It scared me. When I first saw him go down, I kinda held my breath.”
It’s certain that all of Lee’s teammates are hoping for the best, and that this injury is only a setback, and won’t keep him out for the season. The Cowboys could ill-afford to be without their star linebacker again.
