Cowboys linebacker Sean Lee has been ruled out for this Sunday’s de facto NFC East Championship Game with the Philadelphia Eagles at AT&T Stadium, ESPN’s Adam Schefter has reported.
After missing two games with a hamstring injury earlier in the year, Lee returned against the Bears only to suffer a strained neck ligament in that contest. While the team thought the injury wasn’t serious at first, an MRI revealed the strain and Lee has been out ever since.
If the Cowboys fall to the Eagles on Sunday, Lee will finish the 2013 season with 99 tackles, a team-high four interceptions and six passes defensed.
