Sean Lee LB DAL 1 Month

Cowboys MLB Sean Lee (neck) has been cleared for offseason workouts.

Lee missed the final three games of 2013 with torn ligaments in his neck but avoided surgery. He's been working out at Valley Ranch and is expected to be ready to go for OTAs next month. Lee has yet to play a full 16-game season in his career. There's been some chatter the Cowboys could move Lee to the weak side.

Bryan Broaddus of the Cowboys' official website indicates the team is thinking about moving MLB Sean Lee to weak-side linebacker.

Bruce Carter manned the weak side last season but was benched before quickly regaining the job. The Cowboys might be souring on him. If Lee kicks outside, second-year LB DeVonte Holloman could take over in the middle. Holloman played 214 defensive snaps as a rookie and started the final two games at MIKE. Lee's tackle number might take a slight hit, but he'd remain a strong IDP play.

The Cowboys restructured the contracts of MLB Sean Lee and CB Orlando Scandrick, creating nearly $7 million in cap room.

Jerry Jones is at it again. In an effort to get under the cap, he keeps kicking the can down the road and pushing more money into the future. Lee converted $4.75 million of his $5.5 million base salary into a bonus. Scandrick turned $3.75 million of his $4.5 million base into an immediate "signing" bonus.

Sean Lee (neck) expects to be ready for the Cowboys' offseason program.

Lee has been shut down since suffering a sprained ligament in his neck in Week 14. The injury is not expected to require surgery, but he remains questionable for the start of OTAs. Lee is one of the most injury-prone linebackers in the league and has missed 15 of Dallas' last 32 games.

The Cowboys do not think Sean Lee (neck) will need surgery.

Speaking in a Thursday radio interview, Cowboys ILB Sean Lee (sprained neck) confirmed he'll be out for Sunday's game against the Eagles.

At best, Lee is week to week. He's unlikely to be ready for the Wild Card round if Dallas can best Philadelphia for the NFC East title. Injury prone going back to his days at Penn State, Lee is in the first season of a seven-year, $42.63 million contract.

Cowboys ILB Sean Lee has ligament damage in his neck.

It's a better diagnosis than spinal stenosis, but it's still scary anytime the neck is involved. Lee won't play in Sunday night's game against the Eagles -- the second straight year he's missed the Cowboys' most important game of the season. Last year, the stud middle linebacker couldn't play at Washington due to a toe injury.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Cowboys ILB Sean Lee's neck injury is "more significant than the team thought."

Lee was previously reported as "doubtful" for Week 17 against the Eagles, but Schefter reports he "will not play Sunday." It's another huge blow to the Cowboys, who will also be without Tony Romo (back) for the win-or-go-home game. Their defense is a sieve and they'll be starting journeyman Kyle Orton at quarterback.

Cowboys ILB Sean Lee (neck) is considered doubtful for Week 17.

Lee has yet to be cleared for Sunday's winner-take-all tilt with the Eagles, and it doesn't sound like clearance is forthcoming. It's a major problem for a horrible defense tasked with slowing down both Nick Foles and LeSean McCoy with everything on the line. If Lee sits out Sunday, he'll have missed 15 of the Cowboys' past 32 games.
