Cowboys fans, stop me if you’ve heard this one before. Sean Lee is going to miss some time due to an injury.
The Dallas Cowboys weakside linebacker is slated to miss 4-6 weeks with his latest hamstring injury that he suffered in the game against the Tennessee Titans on Monday Night Football.

The Cowboys can save $7 million by cutting him before next season, and Lee would count only $3.075 million in dead money, as his contract runs through 2019.
At 32-years-old, Lee just can’t stay on the field for an extended period of time without succumbing to another injury that has plagued his career.
Throughout his career, Lee has missed 45 of a possible 136 games, with 13 of them being missed because of hamstring issues. Jason Garrett acknowledged that “we anticipate [Lee] to be out for a little bit, no question about that,” but has never given a more definitive timetable.
