Only the Dallas Cowboys would have their star defensive player get severely hurt on the first day of organized team activities. Even though the team suffered a huge blow to their defense, there are still things to get accomplished before they open up the season at home with the San Francisco 49ers. This team always has burning questions that needed to be answered and I decided to list them for your enjoyment. So here are the top-10 burning questions for the Dallas Cowboys, part-1!
#10- Who will step up in place of Sean Lee?
The loss of starting middle linebacker Sean Lee will be hard to replace, but luckily the injury happened very early. It now gives the team enough time to find a suitable replacement and get the player up to speed on how to run the defense. The question is who will they turn too? The in-house candidates are linebackers DeVonte Holloman, Kyle Wilber, and Bruce Carter. Out of the three, it seems Holloman is the favorite because he did a great job filling in for Lee last year. Also, they may want to keep Carter on the weak side and see if he can finally adjust to the defensive scheme. So other outside candidates they could bring in are Jonathan Vilma and Ernie Sims. Vilma, if healthy, can be an intriguing guy to bring in and help sure up the depth in the linebacker corps.
