LB Sean Lee dealing with hamstring tightness
- On Thursday, Dallas Cowboys LB Sean Lee left practice early due to hamstring tightness while Jaylon Smith worked as the first team MLB.
- The former Penn State Nittany Lion has been a stud when on the field – grading in the top-10 at his position from 2012-2016. Lee has perennially had trouble staying healthy, but 2016 marked the first time in his career he played 1,000 snaps. To no one’s surprise, Lee topped all 4-3 OLBs with an 11.6 run stop percentage. Only Telvin Smith (41) had more total run stops than Lee (34).
- What makes Lee so incredible is not only his ability to play the run, but also cover with the best. His 85.2 coverage grade tied for sixth-best in the league.
