Sean Lee can play middle linebacker, but the Pro Bowler set the record straight at training camp.

Early in camp, third-year linebacker Anthony Hitchens has been running with the first-team defense at middle linebacker. Justin Durant has re-signed with the Cowboys and can play middle linebacker.

Lee believes the media is spending too much time dissecting the position issue.

"I think there is a lot made out of it. I think they are similar positions," he said. "Right now, they have me at the Will. I think I'll stay there. We have guys who can play that Mike position."
