Lee recorded a team-high eight tackles in Sunday's 19-3 win over the Giants.
The veteran linebacker looked to be in midseason form, making a number of strong stops against a Giants offense that couldn't get anything going on the ground or through the air. Injuries are always a concern with Lee, but as long as he's in the lineup he should remain one of the best IDP options in the league at his position.
Lee (hamstring) was not listed on the Cowboy's injury report Wednesday.
Lee dealt with hamstring tightness throughout camp, but appears to be recovered from the issue. The Cowboys played it cautious with the veteran in order to ensure his health entering the season, which appears to have paid off. Barring any setbacks, he is seemingly in line to take the field Sunday night against the Giants.
Lee (hamstring) is expected to play in Saturday's preseason game against the Raiders, Jon Machota of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Lee left practice a couple of weeks ago with hamstring tightness, but he has reportedly returned to practice this week and took part in team drills. If Lee is officially made active, it's likely, given his injury history, that he plays limited defensive snaps to ensure he is healthy for Week 1.
It's good news for the Cowboys after Lee exited practice on Aug. 10 with hamstring tightness. The veteran linebacker is coming off his most productive and healthy season in 2016 and is currently on track to be ready for Week 1.
Lee left Thursday's practice due to hamstring tightness, Todd Archer of ESPN reports.
This likely isn't anything to be overly concerned about, as Archer reported that the team is just taking precautionary measures with their defensive leader. However, it's still a situation worth monitoring, given Lee's injury history.
