Sean Lee hopes to be on sidelines next month

IRVING, Texas – Sean Lee hopes to be on the sidelines as a de facto coach for the Cowboys final three games once he is able to put pressure on his surgically repaired right big toe.

Lee had season-ending surgery on Oct. 30 to repair a torn plantar plate and will need six weeks to recovery. He currently uses a scooter to get around the team’s Valley Ranch facility. Lee has been around the team some since the surgery, which he said lasted 90 minutes, and hopes to contribute more as he improves.

Lee hopes to be 100 percent by the team’s offseason conditioning program in April. Wide receiver Kevin Ogletree and running back Felix Jones had the same surgeries in recent years and have not had any issues with their toe since.
