This opens up even more playing time for first-round LB Leighton Vander Esch moving forward.
After Sunday’s game, Lee told reporters that he aggravated his hamstring injury and doesn’t sound overly optimistic about his status moving forward.
“Felt something, some tightness,” Lee said, per Brandon George. “Hopefully it will be a quick turnaround. Same deal, but you never know.”
Lee added that he’s scheduled to undergo an MRI on Monday to determine the severity of his injury.
“We’ll see. It’s one of those deals,” Lee said.
Lee, 32, is a former second-round pick of the Cowboys back in 2010. He’s currently in the sixth year of his seven-year, $42.63 million that included $16.1 million guaranteed and was set to make a base salary of $7 million for the 2018 season.
In 2018, Lee has appeared in three games for the Cowboys and recorded 20 tackles, a half sack and a pass defense.
