ESPN: Cowboys LB Sean Lee Has Torn ACL

Ronald Martinez/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Dallas Cowboys linebacker Sean Lee was told on Tuesday that he tore his left ACL and will probably miss the entire 2014 season, according to ESPN's Ed Werder.

Lee was hurt during the team's first organized activity workout when he was blocked to the ground by offensive lineman Zack Martin. Lee needed to be helped to the locker room by the members of the Cowboys' training staff.
Lee had an MRI Tuesday and while the Cowboys haven't made an official statement, ESPN says Lee was told the MRI confirmed the tear in his anterior cruciate ligament in the left knee.
This isn't the first time Lee tore an ACL. In 2008, while at Penn State, Lee tore his right ACL and in 2009 he partially tore his left ACL.

"Sean has had to deal with injuries throughout college and also here in the NFL," Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett. "He really does everything he can to get himself ready to play. Unfortunately, he had to deal with a few of those things, but he's as mentally tough as an individual I've ever been around. Whatever the circumstances are, he always puts his best foot forward and strives to be his best. I don't anticipate this being any different."

The 27-year-old Lee has played in 46 games during four seasons with the Cowboys. During that time Lee has compiled 193 tackles, 11 interceptions, and two forced fumbles.
