Sean Lee: I need to find a way to stay healthy

0458f668b1f3aae7cfb602497bd791eb AP

Cowboys linebacker Sean Lee missed five of the final six games of the 2013 season, leaving him to watch as the Cowboys lost two of their final three games to miss the playoffs for the fourth straight year.

Lee missed the final three games with a neck injury and he’s been rehabbing it at the team’s facility since the end of the season. He hasn’t been fully cleared yet, but feels better and thinks that he’s on the path to a full recovery. Lee, who missed the two other games with a hamstring injury, said that he plans to spend some time this offseason figuring out a way to avoid another rehab next season.

“I think I’ve had a combination of injuries, like the hamstring would be an ‘injury-prone’ type of injury. I think I’ve also had some bad luck where I got rolled up in a pile with my toe and I’ve gotten hit by my own guy in a pile,” Lee said, via ESPNDallas.com. “I need to find a way to stay healthy, whether it’s finding a way to be stronger and not having the hamstring deal or it’s hopefully having a little bit better luck. I need a combination of both going forward.”

Lee has played well during his four years with the Cowboys, but he’s never played in all 16 games and missed the win-or-else Week 17 losses in each of the last two seasons. His presence might not have changed either of those outcomes, but the Cowboys would enjoy a chance to find out what happens with a full season of Lee in the lineup.

    Unfortunately, the only way to stay healthy is to not play football – and even that isn’t a guarantee.

    Solution: Don’t play football.

    I feel for the guy. As a Panthers fan, I can sympathize with great MLBs who can’t stay healthy. We had both Dan Morgan and Jon Beason who were in that boat.

    Lee has had some bad luck. He injured his toe while on the ground
    After making a tackle. Ware threw a player off of himself onto Lee’s
    heel . This year injury was from another teammate hitting Lee.
    Lee is always around the ball. If you watch the Cowboys Lee is usually
    either in the tackle or right there at the end of a play. He never stops
    his pursuit towards the play. This has both caused him to make plays
    like picking up fumbles or interceptions when a ball has been tipped.This hustle has seemed to put him in positions where he gets injured.
    What should Lee do? It seems like you can’t change him. His hustle is
    a big part of his game. Maybe if Dallas gets a huge one- technique player in front of him it would help free Lee up. However the way
    he has been hurt seems not to come from the defensive scheme.
    Maybe his luck will change.

    Join the 49ers, they’ve been bizarrely healthy since Jim Harbaugh took over and started the entire team on a rigorous PED regimen.

    Adding young talented defensive linemen through the draft may help everyone on the defense including Lee. Then he may be involved in less collisions.
