Lee (knee) got in some team work at Tuesday's minicamp practice, Todd Archer of ESPN Dallas reports.

Lee is slightly more than a year removed from tearing the ACL and meniscus in his left knee. He's played just 17 games over the past three seasons but was highly effective when last seen on the field (Week 14, 2013). Assuming he continues to make good progress in his recovery, he's locked in as the Cowboys' starting weakside linebacker, with Rolando McClain manning the middle. Both are candidates to be useful IDP contributors, but McClain is reportedly facing the possibility of a four-game suspension, and he won't necessarily stay on the field for passing downs.

Lee (knee) will be a limited participant in next week's OTAs, Mickey Spagnola of reports.

He's had a great offseason as he comes back from a torn ACL, but the Cowboys don't want Lee to overdo things. If he can stay healthy for once, and the move to weakside linebacker goes smoothly, the team is expecting him be a vital part of their defense.

Lee (knee) has looked "fantastic" in offseason workouts, Jon Machota of the Dallas Morning News reports. Cowboys Director of Player Personnel Stephen Jones added, "As you might expect, he's ready to go."

Lee is nearly a year removed from surgery to repair the ACL and meniscus tears in his left knee, which clearly wiped away the 2014 campaign. With Rolando McClain back in the linebacker mix, a healthy Lee will be free to move to outside linebacker this fall. After posting 22 tackles as a rookie in 2010, Lee averaged 8.1 tackles per game from 2011-13, which were occasionally injury-plagued.

Lee is ahead of schedule in his rehab from knee surgery, and is expected to be a full participant in April's offseason program, the Dallas Morning News reports.The Cowboys indicated last season that Lee would play weakside linebacker when he came back rather than the Mike position, to try and reduce his risk of getting hurt, but with Rolando McClain not yet re-signed the club may have to return Lee to the middle in 2015 and take their chances.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said Friday that Lee (knee) will likely play weakside linebacker when he returns to action in 2015, Brandon George of the Dallas Morning News.

Lee is one of the better linebackers in the NFL, but he has had serious trouble staying healthy the last few seasons, and the Cowboys may move him off of the middle linebacker position to both minimize their risk and limit his snaps. It's far too early to call this a final decision, but it appears Lee may have ceded the starting middle linebacker job to the rejuvenated Rolando McClain for good.

Cowboys placed MLB Sean Lee on injured reserve with a torn left ACL, ending his season.

Any hopes a late-season return are officially kaput. Lee tore the ACL during a May 27 OTA and underwent surgery on June 12, getting slapped with a 8-12 month recovery timetable. In a best-case scenario, the heart and soul of Dallas' beleaguered defense will be a full-go for 2015 training camp. The oft-injured 27-year-old signed a seven-year, $42.6 million contract in August of 2013.

Cowboys MLB Sean Lee underwent surgery on his torn left ACL Thursday.

Doctors also repaired a "small meniscus tear." According to coach Jason Garrett, the Cowboys have yet to decide if Lee will begin training camp on injured reserve or the active/PUP list. Either way, Lee is facing long odds of making a Melvin Ingram-esque return late this season.

Coach Jason Garrett revealed MLB Sean Lee (knee) will undergo surgery to repair his torn ACL on Thursday.

Some are holding out hope that Lee can make a Melvin Ingram-like return to the lineup in December. Ingram tore his ACL around the same time last year and played the final four regular season games and in the playoffs. ESPN Dallas isn't taking the bait, and expects Lee to miss the entire year. Justin Durant has been running with the ones at MIKE 'backer. Rookie Anthony Hitchens is also in the mix.

ESPN Dallas doesn't expect Sean Lee (ACL surgery) to return this season.

There's been some thought that Lee could be stashed on short-term I.R. in hopes of making a late-season impact, but the Cowboys aren't going to rush back a player with his injury history. Lee is facing a 8-12 month recovery timetable and should spend the entire 2014 season on injured reserve.
