The Dallas Cowboys will be without middle linebacker Sean Lee for three to four weeks after suffering a hamstring pull in the loss to the Saints on Sunday night, ESPN Dallas reports.
Lee pulled the hamstring while making a tackle in the second quarter.
“I don't want to miss any games,” Lee said after the game, per the report. “I want to be out there as much as I can. But I try to do everything I can off the field to control it.
"It's one of those deals where you have to find a way now to overcome it and come back. That's the only thought, that I will be able to come back.”
Lee, who missed ten games last year with a fractured big toe, leads Dallas in both tackles and interceptions. He was recently named the NFC’s Player of the Month for October and, before the injury, seemed more or less a lock to get a Pro Bowl nod.
