    Sean Lee can play some football. We all know that as fact. But he also can't stay healthy and had missed 31 games over the past three seasons, including all of 2014 with a torn ACL he suffered in OTAs.

    But in 2015, Lee, by his standards, anyway, had a healthy year and played in 14 games while leading the team with 156 tackles to go with 2 1/2 sacks, an interception and five pass breakups.

    He was rewarded on Wednesday when he was selected to his first Pro Bowl after being named as an injury replacement for Kansas City linebacker Justin Houston. Lee will join teammates Zach Martin, Travis Frederick, Tyron Smith and Dan Bailey to give the Cowboys five representatives in the Pro Bowl after the team won just four games in 2015.

    If Lee can ever stay healthy for an extended period of time, he could be one of the game's best linebackers on a consistent basis but that's been a huge problem for him so far and his concussion problem in 2015 was a pretty big concern moving forward.
