    The Dallas Cowboys are proceeding with caution where weakside linebacker Sean Lee is concerned, keeping his practice workload limited to some degree as he bounces back from a torn ACL, but when the preseason kicks off a week from today, he expects to play, and continue playing quite a bit throughout the preseason.

    “I would expect to play,” Lee said, per the Dallas Morning News.  “I don’t know. It’s up to the coaches. I would expect to play a lot in the preseason.”

    The Cowboys hope the move from middle linebacker to the weak side will help keep Lee healthy and on the field. He’s missed 34 games due to injury since being drafted in the second round in 2010, including all of last season after he suffered the torn ACL in OTAs.

    “Every time you leave, you realize how much you love the game,” Lee said. “I have been away from it too much. I think what’s helped me with the process of being injured a lot is I know how to deal with it. I think the one thing I can say is I missed a lot of time. But I came back from a lot of injuries and have been able to produce after injuries. That’s my goal now coming back--being able to stay on the field but also producing after an injury.”
