Cowboys linebacker Sean Lee will likely be out for another 2-3 weeks with a hamstring injury suffered in the Week 10 loss to the Saints, but according to Jerry Jones, if anyone can recover ahead of schedule, it’s Lee.
"Sean is Superman, and I mean it," Jones told 105.3-FM The Fan, via the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. "I remember back before the draft, ESPN did a special on him, and I think members of his team called him God. He has such a will that if anybody can come back sooner than what you ought to be coming back from, he can do it. He’s rehabbing at the most intense level you can, and if anybody can get back here in a couple of weeks, he can do it."
For a banged up Dallas defense, Lee’s return can’t come too soon. Lee owns the team lead in both tackles (93) and interceptions (4), and developing into an unquestioned leader of the unit.
Even if Lee is able to come back ahead of the original timetable, he will miss Sunday’s match-up with the Giants up in New Jersey.
