Sean Lee didn't have the type of season he would've wanted in 2013, but when he was on the field he was the same ol' Sean Lee — a dominant defensive presence who flies all over the field and makes tons of plays.
Only problem for the Dallas Cowboys was that Lee wasn't on the field a whole lot, as he missed two separate stints with injury, including a neck injury in Week 14 that forced him out for the remainder of the season. In fact, in the team's last 32 games (two seasons), Lee has only played in 15 games.
The sprained ligament in his neck isn't expected to require any type of surgery, so that's a major positive for Lee, who said he expects to be ready to roll by the time offseason team activities come around.
“Neck’s getting better,” he told The Dallas Morning News. “It’s on its way. I should be ready to go. I think we’ll evaluate it more as the year goes on or the next couple months. But I should be ready for everything this off-season and be fine for next year."
The Cowboys defense was a lost cause in 2013, as we're all painfully aware, but it was especially horrific without Lee on the field, and the Cowboys hope he can have a healthy season for once in 2014. Hopefully that year will come with a new defensive coordinator.
