Lee missed the 2014 season after he tore his ACL. He has been able to participate in individual drills, but the team has kept him out of team drills during offseason workouts.
Although the regular season is still more than three months away,
"I think I'm ready to go, full go," Lee said. "If I'm out there doing a drill or any part of practice, I feel completely comfortable. I feel like I could play again tomorrow if need be."
Lee missed the 2014 season after he tore the ACL in his knee during OTAs last offseason. The team is limiting him to individual drills for now, which Lee said he understands.
"I think anytime with an injury, you never want to skip a step in the progression," he said. "You always want to progress properly and that's what they're doing for me."
Cowboys linebackers coach Matt Eberflus said the team is happy to have Lee back but that they will pace him along slowly.
"He's a ball of energy and excitement and that represents who we are," Cowboys defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli said. "He's moving well. We're just being smart as we get him ready to go. But he's got a lot of good quality work in."
“If it says ‘linebacker’ behind the position, I think he’s going to be okay,” Cowboys linebackers coach Matt Eberflus said of Lee. “I think that, like I said, we’ll tie all these guys together and see how they fit. And we’ll find the best position for them…. Sean’s uniqueness in his ability, like a few other guys that we’ve had, he’s able to play all positions. He can really play all positions. That’s what makes him a valuable asset to our defense. He will certainly be good once we get him there and get him going. He’s really super excited and so am I.”

Lee tore his ACL last May during organized team activities, which caused him to miss the entire 2014 season. Lee has been injured quite a bit during his career but is one of the team's best defenders when healthy.
In his first four NFL seasons from 2010-2013, Lee totaled 294 tackles, 11 interceptions and two forced fumbles.
