Draft Scout Sean Lee News
09/07/16 - LB Sean Lee practiced full after being slowed by tendinitis in his knee last week.
09/02/16 - LB Sean Lee had his contracted reworked and he now can recoup the money he lost at the tail end of the 2015 season. The Cowboys adjusted Lee's contract to include up to $2 million in per-game roster bonuses. They also converted $2 million of Lee's $3 million base salary into a signing bonus. Lee lost $2 million last season when he sat out of the Week 17 loss to Washington with a hamstring problem. He had an escalator in his contract that would increase his base salary by $2 million if he played in 80 percent of the Cowboys' snaps. Lee ended up playing 77 percent of the snaps after sitting out the season finale. He is getting per-game roster bonuses of $125,000 in hopes of getting the money back.
08/12/16 - LB Sean Lee is expected to sit out the preseason opener against the Los Angeles Rams.
05/01/16 - LB Sean Lee suffered a setback of sorts and recently underwent arthroscopic left knee surgery. It's on the same knee that Lee suffered an ACL injury in 2014, forcing him to miss the entire season.
Lee returned in 2015 to earn his first Pro-Bowl bid. The surgery is not considered major. He is not expected to miss much time and will be ready by training camp, at the latest. Lee has battled knee injuries throughout his career, never playing a full 16-game season, but Jones expressed little concern about the latest procedure.
"It just cropped up," Jones said. "It'd been bothering him a little bit. Why not check it here while we're early in the offseason and get it cleaned up?"
Jones said the Cowboys will take a cautious approach with working Lee back into the offseason program, and isn't overly concerned how much work Lee does when organized team activities get underway in late May.
"No hurry with Sean," Jones said.
01/03/16 - LB Sean Lee of the Cowboys is inactive with a hamstring injury that could cost him a $2 million escalator on his 2016 base salary.
Lee has a play-time incentive in his contract that stipulates if he plays in 80 percent or more of the Cowboys' defensive snaps this season, his $3 million base salary increases to $5 million. Going into Sunday's game, Lee had played in 82.1 percent of the Cowboys' snaps. If the Cowboys' defense is on the field for 66 plays Sunday against the Redskins, Lee's play-time percentage in 2015 would drop to 77 percent.
Lee leads the Cowboys with 128 tackles this season. He has 2.5 sacks.
