Cowboys linebacker Sean Lee played six and a half weeks in 2012 before being injured for the rest of the season in week seven with torn ligaments in his big toe. But now, Lee says the toe is fine and that he’d be ready to go tomorrow if Dallas had a game.
“The toe is ready to go,” Lee said, per the Dallas Morning News. “I’m pretty much 100 percent. I’ll be going through all the OTAs and it’s getting better and better every week. Other than some soreness after practice, I’m pretty much 100 percent.”
Lee’s focus now is on getting back on the field and staying there for the entirety of the 2013 season--an idea that is heartening for Dallas fans.
“Ever since college, I’ve really changed across the board how I’ve trained, how I try to recover, stretching, eating, every habit that can help me stay on the field,” Lee said. “Last year, the type of injury it was, I thought it was a fluke. It’s not much you really can do to avoid that. But I’m still at this stage trying to avoid injuries, and I have to find a way to stay on the field.
“If I want to be an effective player, I have to be on the field.”
