Just when you think that it can’t get any worse for Cowboys, one of the key defensive players gets hurt, again. We could see Sean Lee, Cowboys linebacker, helped off the field at the beginning of the second half versus Seattle Seahawks and when he returned he spent the majority of time at the sideline.
It was previously reported that Lee strained his hamstring during the game against New York Giants and he didn’t appear at Wednesday practice while was limited on Thursday and Friday. This issue plagued him during the last week, but it was decided for him to play on Sunday.
We did see star linebacker on Sunday, but he was helped off the field because of it early in the second half when he tried to rush Russell Wilson. More details and the extent of the injury will be known after the MRI that is scheduled for Monday.
After Lee left the match The Boys played home against the Giants, he reported that he felt tightness in his hamstring and he described it as a cramp. The same hamstring caused problems for him, and he again described the issue as a cramp and that he felt “some tightness.”
“We’ll see, same deal, but you never know,” Lee said. “Hopefully it will be a quick turnaround.” This is what he said when asked if he’s optimistic about this issue: “Uh, yeah, I mean, we’ll see. It’s one of those deals.”
During the previous season, Lee was absent for a few games, and the Cowboys defense wasn’t able to perform at the same level. In those few matches, they allowed a lot more yards, when he returned the situation was much better. Looking at the figures with and without star linebacker on the field, it is clear that he is a crucial piece of this squad.
