Sean Lee’s return to the lineup for the Dallas Cowboys ultimately proved to be somewhat short-lived.

Lee left Monday night’s game against the Chicago Bears with a neck injury. While attempting to make a tackle, Lee dove forward and took a knee/thigh to the head.

Lee was making his return to the lineup for the first time in nearly a month. Lee missed the last two games for Dallas after suffering a hamstring injury against the New Orleans Saints on Nov. 10. Lee had racked up seven tackles for the Cowboys on the night before leaving the game.

Lee’s absence levies a further blow to an already maligned Cowboys’ defense. The Bears have scored on each of their first seven possessions against Dallas in building a 42-14 lead.
