Cowboys Have Idea to Keep LB Sean Lee Healthy in 2018

The Cowboys have a plan to keep oft injured linebacker Sean Lee healthy this upcoming season which involves him missing workouts, Jon Machota of the Dallas Morning News reports.

“I get the governor put on me and have to be smart this time of year,” Lee said. “It’s tough not being out there because you want to be out there trying to lead from the front, but there’s perspective that’s kept this time of year that we’ve got to build toward training camp and build towards the year.”

It’s not always easy for the Cowboys’ athletic trainers and strength and conditioning staff to convince Lee that this plan is best for him.

“It’s like ‘Groundhog Day’ for me,” Lee said. “I kind of fight them and they put perspective on me and I listen to them.”

Lee, 31, missed five games because of a hamstring injury last season. The Cowboys defense has suffered significantly when the two-time Pro Bowler hasn’t been on the field. Dallas is 1-7 without Lee over the last three seasons.

Lee tore the ACL in his left knee during an OTA practice in 2014, causing him to miss the entire season.

“I’ve had an issue staying on the field,” Lee said. “Really, two years ago, I felt in ’15 and ’16, we did a good job staying on the field. Last year, I didn’t. So I think we have a great game plan to try to keep me out there.”
