Dallas Cowboy linebacker Sean Lee injured his on May 27thduring OTA’s at the Dallas Cowboys practice facility at Valley Ranch in Irving, Texas. Lee was blocked down by rookie Zach Martin when his knee planted down hard to the ground, thus ending his season before it was even started.
Lee is expected to have surgery on Thursday, June 12thto repair his ACL (Anterior Cruciate Ligament) and then begin the lengthy healing process, which takes about six to nine months to recover from. Dallas hasn’t made any moves in regards to his roster spot and there are a few possibilities for the oft-injured linebacker. One move that is most likely is to put him on the injured reserve and sit him out for the entire 2014 season.
Head coach Jason Garrett doesn’t want to make a rash move to make sure that things are done right.
“I just think we want to go in there and do the surgery, get it done right,” as stated on dallasnews.com. He continued to say, “Typically, the doctors will give you a timetable, and you see what’s reasonable and you make your best roster move.”
