Lee (hamstring) is expected to play Sunday against the 49ers, Jane Slater of the NFL Network reports. Lee, who hasn't played since Week 3 due to a strained hamstring, is set to practice Wednesday, though it isn't clear what level of participation he'll have. It wouldn't be a surprise if he took limited reps all week due to the tricky nature of hamstring injuries.
Lee (hamstring) returned to practice Wednesday, Jane Slater of NFL Network reports. Lee was held out the past two games with the expectation he would be ready to play after the Cowboys' bye in Week 6. He should be back to full strength for Week 7 against the 49ers, picking up where he left off as one of the better IDP options in the entire league. Lee and Anthony Hitchens figure to get most of the snaps when the Cowboys deploy a nickel defense.
Lee (hamstring) isn't expected to play Sunday against the Packers, Jane Slater of NFL Network reports. Lee's lingering hamstring injury will likely keep him on the sideline for a second straight contest. Without a key cog of the defense, the Cowboys will have difficulty filling Lee's shoes against an Aaron Rodgers-powered offense, but look for fellow linebackers Jaylon Smith and Justin Durant to pick up a significant share of defensive snaps yet again.
Lee (hamstring) didn't practice all week and is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against Green Bay, Michael Cohen of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. Per Jon Machota of The Dallas Morning News, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones hinted Friday that the team could take a conservative approach to Lee's injury ahead of a Week 6 bye. The upcoming rest should allow Lee to return at full strength in Week 7, and the Cowboys seemingly don't want to risk an aggravation that could result in a long-term absence. With that in mind, Lee appears closer to doubtful than truly questionable for Sunday's game. Jaylon Smith played every defensive snap in last week's loss to the Rams, with fellow linebacker Justin Durant handling a 70 percent snap share. Both would be in store for sizable roles once again Sunday if Lee is inactive.
Lee (hamstring) is nearing a return to game action, Brandon George of The Dallas Morning News reports. Given Lee's injury history, it wouldn't be surprising if he misses another week. The 31-year-old has battled and overcome a plethora of lower-body injuries throughout his career, and a nagging hamstring is something that could linger for weeks if there is a premature return. However, reports are that Lee seems to be progressing nicely. The decision will likely be a matter of risk/reward, with Lee's Week 5 status expected to be clarified near week's end.
