Report: Cowboys LB Sean Lee likely to play vs. Packers in Week 15
Cowboys linebacker Sean Lee, who injured his neck against Chicago on Monday, reportedly doesn't have any structural damage and will likely play against the Packers on Sunday.
The Dallas Cowboys' 32nd-ranked defense hasn't had many good breaks this season, but it might have caught one on Tuesday with starting middle linebacker Sean Lee. Lee, who injured his neck against the Bears on Monday, has no structural damage and will likely play against Green Bay this week, according to ESPN.com.
Lee left Monday's game after injuring his neck in the third quarter of the Cowboys' 45-28 loss to Chicago. The injury left Lee with a sore and stiff neck on Tuesday. The team said it believes that after receiving treatment this week, Lee will be ready to go against the Packers on Sunday.
The Cowboys' game against Chicago marked Lee's first time on the field since Week 10. Lee injured his hamstring in a Nov. 10 loss to the Saints and missed the next two games. Despite being out of the lineup for two weeks, Lee still leads the team in interceptions (4) and is second on the team in tackles with 99, trailing only Barry Church's 109.
The Cowboys' defense is currently on pace to surrender 6,830 yards, which would be the second-highest total in NFL history. The 2012 Saints set the record for most yards surrendered when they gave up 7,042 yards last season. The Saints broke the record of the 1981 Baltimore Colts, a unit that gave up 6,793 yards.
