REPORT: Cowboys LB Sean Lee to Miss Games with Hamstring Injury

and Captain will likely miss time with a hamstring suffered during the team's Week 3 loss to the .

Lee, who'd hurt his other hamstring in Week 2 against the Giants, had to leave yesterday's game with a new injury to the alternate leg. His status was reported on today by NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Hamstring issues also bothered Sean Lee last year. He missed five games in 2017.

As Rapoport mentioned, the presence of rookie now takes far greater importance. The 2018 first-round pick looked good yesterday in relief of Sean, registering 11 tackles.

Another season of injury problems could put Lee's future with the Cowboys in jeopardy. In fact, it may only cement what was already a strong possibility.

Sean can be released next season for about $7 million in savings, and his replacement is already on the roster.

Lee is still a top NFL linebacker when healthy. But “when healthy” has been said far too often, and the Cowboys used their first-round pick this year to prepare for such a problem.

We'll see how long the 32-year-old has to sit out, and what impact that has on his career going forward.
