Cowboys middle linebacker Sean Lee said earlier this week that there was a good chance that he’d return from a hamstring injury this week in the match-up with the Chicago Bears on Monday Night Football.
On Tuesday morning, owner and general manager Jerry Jones confirmed the news, telling 105.3-FM The Fan--via the Dallas Morning News--that Lee would be back in the starting lineup in Chicago after missing the past two games, a pair of wins over the Giants and the Raiders, with the injury.
Jones added that cornerback Morris Claiborne remains a question mark going into this week’s match-up. This isn’t all that surprising, given that Claiborne himself said earlier in the week that he would test the hamstring this week, but he didn’t sound terribly optimistic.
Despite missing two games, Lee still ranks second on the team in tackles with 93 (only safety Barry Church has more, with 101). He leads the team in interceptions with four.
