The Dallas Cowboys have been down this road before.
Sean Lee is one of the NFL's best linebackers when on the field as referenced by his 90 total tackles and four interceptions entering his team's contest on Sunday Night Football against the New Orleans Saints.
Lee is well-known for succumbing to the injury bug, and he did just that in the first half with a hamstring injury that sidelined him for the rest of the game per ESPN:

The linebacker will undergo an MRI to see the extent of the problem, according to Calvin Watkins of ESPN:
Dallas Cowboys starting middle linebacker Sean Lee, who injured his left hamstring in the team's 49-17 loss to the New Orleans Saints on Sunday night, will undergo an MRI on Monday.
"I don't know the severity, but obviously it's not good," Lee said. "So, we got to figure it out and do whatever I can to rehab and get back as fast as possible."

Lee was in the middle of another outstanding year in his four season out of Penn State, but he has missed 20 games in his career thanks to injury, has never played in a full 16-game season and missed 10 last year alone.
Dallas has a lot to figure out moving forward with Lee once again on the shelf.
