Injury Update For Dallas Cowboys' Linebacker Sean Lee

When Sean Lee has been able to stay on the field, he's been one of the best linebackers in the NFL. Staying on the field has been a bit of a problem for the Dallas Cowboys' star, though. 

Lee has missed multiple games in each of his six seasons except one (his second-year season in 2011). He missed the entire 2014 season with a torn ACL, but was able to play 14 games last season and earned a Pro Bowl berth.

The 29-year-old former Penn State standout has been limited this offseason, however, as he's been recovering from knee surgery. Lee felt some discomfort in his knee while working out this offseason and underwent minor surgery in late April clean up some cartilage. 

Lee told reporters he'll be "shocked" if he isn't out on the field by the start of training camp. 

From the Dallas Morning News:

"I feel great physically,'' Lee said. "I'm getting better each week. I think I'll be 100 percent ready by training camp.

"This is one of the deals, it was a leftover issue from that ACL surgery I had. We knew we might have to do it at some point.''

The Cowboys are tentatively set to start training camp on July 29. The team arrives in Oxnard, Calif. on July 28. 

Dallas opens its season Sept. 11 against the New York Giants.
