The Dallas Cowboys worst fears have been confirmed.

Cowboys inside linebacker Sean Lee has been diagnosed with a torn left ACL after going down in OTA’s earlier today. He is expected to miss the entire 2014 season.

This is a huge hit for the Cowboys defense. Their poor defense has gotten worse.

If his injury would have happened two months earlier, he could have been placed on injured reserve/designated to return. Now, there’s little to no chance that he will return now.

It’s the second torn ACL in his career. The first one happened while he was a player at Penn State.

He has missed 15 games over the past two years with various injuries. He has suffered from toe, neck, and hamstring issues during that time.

The team may be forced to start rookie Anthony Hitchens at inside linebacker. He was a fourth round pick by the Cowboys in the 2014 NFL Draft.

Last season, the Cowboys had the worst defense in the league.
