Dallas Cowboys middle linebacker Sean Lee has undergone successful surgery on his left ACL today.
Doctors have repaired a “small meniscus tear.” Two weeks ago, Lee went down with the torn ACL at OTA’s.
First round pick Zack Martin was attempting to block Lee when he went down with the injury. The team could still be fined by the NFL for this incident, as players are not supposed to block each other at OTA’s.
The team has not decide if Lee will start training camp on injured reserve or the PUP list. If he is on the PUP list, he is eligible to return.
He faces long road back, and the Cowboys are already thinking that he could return in December. San Diego Chargers linebacker Melvin Ingram had a torn ACL around the same time, and returned to the team in December to play the final four games of the regular season and playoffs.
The Chargers decided to put Ingram on the PUP list, In his return, he had eight tackles.
Lee, a Penn State product, has been with the Cowboys since the 2010 season. He is the quarterback of the Cowboys defense, and will sorely be missed.
The Cowboys had one of the worst defenses last year, as he missed five games. In 11 games, he had 99 tackles, four interceptions and an interception for a touchdown, and six pass deflections.
