Cowboys linebacker Sean Lee, one of the most impressive young defenders in the league, knows he needs to figure out how to stay on the field, saying last month, "I need to find a way to stay healthy, whether it's finding a way to be stronger and not having the hamstring deal or it's hopefully having a little bit better luck. I need a combination of both going forward."

Now, he'll officially get his chance to do so, because according to ESPN Dallas, Lee has been cleared for offseason workouts.

Lee, who's missed 18 games in the past four seasons, sat out the final three games of last year after suffering a torn ligament in his neck, but Lee reportedly has been working out at the Cowboys complex and is expected to join the team for offseason workouts beginning late next month.

Hopefully for Lee and Dallas, he won't have to miss more games this season due to injury.

"I didn't play at the end of the year at a very critical time, and it's been two years in a row, and I need to be out there," Lee said last month. "There's no excuse for it. I've got to find a way to stay on the football field."
