- The Dallas Cowboys take yet another blow in the player personnel department. This time, star linebacker Sean Lee goes down with a hamstring injury and could miss several weeks. Jaylon Smith should see the bulk of Lee’s work with Justin Durant possibly getting some snaps as well.
- Racking up 14 run stops on 118 run-defense snaps, Lee produced a run-stop percentage of 11.9 percent, the top mark among 4-3 outside linebackers this season. Lee’s overall grade of 84.0 ranks 12th among linebackers, placing Lee near the top of the league at his position once again.
- Looking to Smith as the primary replacement to Lee, the Cowboys might see quite the drop off in production defending the run, as both his run-stop percentage of 7.5 percent and run-defense grade of 33.9 rank 50th and 67th respectively.
