Cowboys need Sean Lee to stay healthy

OXNARD, CA (KLTV) -

When healthy, Sean Lee has shown the potential to be one of the best linebackers in the NFL. The problem?  The Cowboys star defensive player hasn't been able to stay on the field.

Lee, though, is finally "full-go" after tearing his ACL in the first off-season workout of 2014. Now it's a matter of the former Penn State standout staying healthy. Lee has missed 23 of his last 24 games with knee, neck, and hamstring injuries.

He's unlikely to play in Thursday night's preseason opener, but the Cowboys know what the linebacker brings to the defense, considering Lee has 11 interceptions in 46 games.

"He is one of the best linebackers in the league," fellow linebacker Anthony Hitchens said. "So when you have a guy like that in your classroom, you are definitely gonna learn and get better."

Safety Barry Church added, "He is one of our leaders and one of our captains on this team. It's just great having him back out there. His intensity just helps everybody step their game up. I'm looking forward to seeing what he can do out their for us.

    Moody Magic, a term coined by the Abilene Christian faithful to describe a supposed mystical aura around Moody Coliseum that gives the Wildcats a winning edge, is something the Stephen F. Austin men's basketball team fell victim to a season ago. Wednesday night, the 'Jacks cast a spell of their own - one of the defensive variety - to make sure their intrastate rivals wouldn't obtain a second-straight win in the series.
