Cowboys' Sean Lee's season may be over

Dallas Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones told KRLD-FM he's "very concerned" linebacker Sean Lee may not be able to return to the field this season. Lee suffered a sprained ligament in his neck in last Monday's 45-28 loss to the Chicago Bears.

Lee told reporters Monday that he hasn't been cleared yet and is unsure if he will be able to play this Sunday against the Washington Redskins. Lee described himself as "week to week," but acknowledged that with only two games remaining, he may not play again this season.

Lee is one of the most important pieces of the Cowboys defense. He leads the team in interceptions and is the Cowboys second leading tackler. Without Lee, the Cowboys blew a 23-point lead and were outscored 34-10 in the fourth quarter of Sunday's 37-36 loss to the Green Bay Packers.

With both teams losing Sunday, Dallas remains one game behind the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC East. Dallas hosts Philly in Week 17 where the division title and a trip to the playoffs could be on the line. The Cowboys hope to have their star linebacker back on the field sooner rather than later as they make their final push for the postseason.
