Lee started and recorded 12 tackles (10 solo) and a sack in Sunday's win over Detroit.
Lee made his first start with the 49ers with several linebackers held out of action. The 22-year-old performed admirably in a pinch, but his role is set to be reduced with Reuben Foster returning from suspension next week. Lee could still start right outside linebacker if Malcolm Smith (hamstring) is unable to go, but he would likely come off the field in nickel and dime packages, limiting his IDP appeal.
Lee (knee) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, Nick Wagoner of ESPN reports.
Lee injured his knee in Week 10 against the Cardinals and wasn't available to play last week against the Giants. However, his full participation Wednesday puts him on a good track to make his return for Sunday's matchup with the Seahawks.
Lee (knee) won't play in Sunday's game against the Giants, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Lee suffered the knee injury during last week's game against the Cardinals. Given that he functions mainly as a special teams asset, the 49ers defense shouldn't experience any appreciable drop-off in Week 10.
Lee (knee) was ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's game against the Cardinals, Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
Lee had been active as a special teams player in every game since Week 2 for the 49ers and had only seen four snaps on defense in that span. The severity of the injury remains to be seen.
