Lee was not a full participant during Thursday's practice, despite the fact that he's supposedly 100 percent healthy. Derek Akunne figures to be next in line to start at outside linebacker Saturday with Lee potentially sidelined.
The Cowboys kicked off training camp in Oxnard, Calif. on Saturday, and after the first practice, Lee said, "[I] Felt great today." Considering he had arthroscopic surgery on the knee on Apr. 29, his offseason activity was predictably scaled back.
