Second round selection Sean Lee watched Tuesday’s practices in San Antonio from the sidelines at the Alamodome, as he was held out with a strained quad. The injury is minor, but Dallas is treating it with care.
This is for good reason.
Lee missed the entire 2008 season at Penn State with a torn ACL, the worst of a string of knee injuries that hampered his still-decorated career under Joe Paterno. He said last weekend that he was battling with cramping through the first few days of camp and, of course, the quad strain cropped up on Tuesday.
After playing the spectator yesterday, Lee is chomping at the bit to get back on the field.
“I'm hoping it's as soon as possible," Lee said, per the Dallas Morning News. "Whenever the doctors say I can go, I'm going to go full go, which I don't feel will be too long."
