Cowboys' Sean Lee: Returning to Cowboys
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cowboys and Lee came to terms on a one-year, $4.5 million contract Tuesday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

Lee had a bounce-back season in 2019 with Leighton Vander Esch missing seven games due to a neck injury, compiling 86 tackles while starting 13 of 16 contests. Vander Esch is expected to be healthy, but Lee nonetheless will serve in some capacity for the Cowboys as a 34-year-old.

Cowboys' Sean Lee: Will play in 2020
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lee announced that he will play in 2020, Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports.

Lee is set to be an unrestricted free agent in March, and he is a candidate to return to the Cowboys, although the two parties haven't reached a deal. If he doesn't re-sign with them, it'll mark the end of a 10-year stint with the team that drafted him in 2010. Lee should have plenty of suitors in free agency nonetheless, as he posted 86 tackles, a sack and four pass breakups over 16 games in 2019.

Cowboys' Sean Lee: Could return for Cowboys
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lee is a candidate to re-sign with the Cowboys for the 2020 season, Michael Gehlken of the Dallas Morning News reports.

Owner Jerry Jones called Lee, who's scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent in March, a "core" member of the team shortly after the conclusion of the 2019 regular season, a hint that coming to terms with a contract is a priority for Dallas. Lee agreed to a pay cut in order to remain in Dallas last season, so it's possible that the veteran linebacker would take another team-friendly deal in order to remain with the Cowboys should he decide to return for an 11th campaign.

Cowboys' Sean Lee: Shows flashes of old form
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lee finished the 2019 season with 86 tackles (55 solo) including one sack along with one interception on four passes defended.

The oft-injured linebacker began the year behind young studs Jaylon Smith and Leighton Vander Esch on the depth chart, and the reduced workload helped Lee play in all 16 games for the first time in his career. He also showed he can still be an IDP factor in the second half when Vander Esch was hurt, racking up a dozen or more tackles in three separate games -- including 17 in a Week 16 loss to the Eagles. An unrestricted free agent, the 33-year-old isn't likely to be offered a full starting job or big money by another club, so expect Lee to return to Dallas in a supporting role.

Cowboys' Sean Lee: Ready for Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lee (pectoral/thigh) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's matchup with the Redskins, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.

Lee practiced only once this week as a limited participant Thursday, but he's good to go for the regular-season finale. The 33-year-old should receive another start in place of Leighton Vander Esch (neck) versus Washington.

Cowboys' Sean Lee: Upgrades to limited practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lee (pectoral/thigh) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Lee didn't practice in any capacity Wednesday, so Thursday's limited session represents a step in the right direction. He'll have one more opportunity to practice in full ahead of Sunday's regular-season finale against Washington.

Cowboys' Sean Lee: DNP at practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lee (pectoral/thigh) is listed as a non-participant in Wednesday's practice, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Lee sat out Wednesday and Friday of Week 16 prior to suiting up and logging a season-high 17 tackles. His status will need to be monitored again prior to Sunday's matchup with Washington.

Cowboys' Sean Lee: Clear of injury designation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lee (pectoral/thigh) won't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Eagles, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports.

Lee didn't practice Wednesday or Friday this week, but the team apparently isn't concerned about the injury for Sunday's contest. The veteran will receive another start with Leighton Vander Esch (neck) still sidelined.

Cowboys' Sean Lee: Upgrades to limited practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lee (pectoral/thigh) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Lee didn't practice Wednesday, so Thursday's limited session represents a tangible step in the right direction. With Leighton Vander Esch (neck) already ruled out for Sunday's tilt against the Eagles, Lee will draw another start in Dallas' linebacker corps if cleared to suit up. A full session Friday would dissipate any doubts about the veteran's availability.

Cowboys' Sean Lee: Returns to injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lee (pectoral/thigh) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.

Lee played through a pectoral injury in Week 15's win over the Rams, and he displayed his best performance of the season, registering a sack and an interception. The veteran linebacker started last week on the sidelines during practice as well, so the Cowboys are hoping Lee will tough it out again in Week 16 versus the Eagles. Chris Covington or Malcolm Smith will be called upon to start if Lee can't go.

Cowboys' Sean Lee: Turns back clock against Rams
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lee recorded four tackles, including a sack, and grabbed an interception in Sunday's win over the Rams.

The sack and pick were his first of the year, and it was the first time in his decorated career the linebacker had tallied one of each in the same game. Lee took a back seat earlier in the year to Jaylon Smith and Leighton Vander Esch, but with LVE battling a neck injury in recent weeks, the veteran has seen his fantasy value surge -- Lee has piled up 45 tackles over the last seven games, in addition to Sunday's splash plays.

Cowboys' Sean Lee: Active in Week 15
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lee (pectoral) is active for Sunday's game against the Rams, Calvin Watkins of the Dallas Morning News reports.

The veteran linebacker will thus be available for the pivotal late-season conference matchup against a Rams offense that's looked much better in the last two games. Lee's presence is particularly valued considering fellow linebacker Leighton Vander Esch will miss another game with his neck injury Sunday.

Cowboys' Sean Lee: On track to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lee (pectoral) plans to play Sunday against the Rams, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Lee received the questionable tag after missing the first two practices of the week but should be good to go for Sunday. The veteran linebacker has 62 tackles (42 solo) and has yet to miss a game this season.

December 13, 2019 05:12 PM
Cowboys' Sean Lee: Listed as questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lee (pectoral) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Rams, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Lee was absent the first two days of practice this week and is in danger of missing his first game this year. Joe Thomas and possibly Justin March could see more work against Los Angeles.

December 12, 2019 08:24 PM
Cowboys' Sean Lee: Misses practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lee (pectoral) missed a second straight practice Thursday, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports.

Friday will be Lee's last chance this week to get practice reps in before Sunday's game. The 33-year-old linebacker has not missed a game this season, so Lee will hope he can keep that streak alive against the Rams. Lee needs eight tackles to reach 70.

December 11, 2019 07:32 PM
Cowboys' Sean Lee: Not practicing Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lee (pectoral) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice.

Lee was able to play through this injury in this past Thursday's loss to the Bears, logging an 84-percent snap share and five tackles (four solo). The veteran linebacker didn't miss a practice leading up to that contest, so while it's possible the Cowboys are just exercising caution, it's certainly a situation to monitor since Leighton Vander Esch (neck) is already expected to miss Sunday's game against the Rams.

Cowboys' Sean Lee: Ready for TNF
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lee (pectoral) won't carry an injury tag into Thursday's matchup against the Bears, Calvin Watkins of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Lee didn't practice Tuesday but was full speed for Wednesday's session, so he'll be good to go for the prime-time clash. The oft-injured Lee hasn't missed a game this season, and he's coming off a Week 13 performance where he notched a season-high 12 stops.

Cowboys' Sean Lee: Practices in limited fashion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lee (pectoral) practiced as a limited participant Monday, Calvin Watkins of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Lee suffered a pectoral strain during last Thursday's loss to the Bills, but the fact he's practicing to start the week indicates it's not a serious issue. The veteran linebacker appears on track to play in Chicago on Thursday, but his practice participation the next two days will provide a better idea of his availability.

Cowboys' Sean Lee: Suffers pec strain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lee is dealing with a pectoral strain, Brianna Dix of D210 Sports reports.

It is not known whether this is an aggravation of the muscle that bothered Lee prior to Week 9. Nevertheless, the injury is suspected to be minor.

Cowboys' Sean Lee: Clear of pectoral injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lee (pectoral) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Vikings, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports.

Lee actually finished the week not practicing, but the absence wasn't injury related. The veteran linebacker has seen an increased amount of playing time in recent weeks, including an 85 percent share of defensive snaps Week 9 against the Giants.
