Cowboys LB Lee sidelined four to six weeks

Updated: 08-11-2018 01:13 IST

Dallas Cowboys standout linebacker Sean Lee will reportedly be sidelined four to six weeks after injuring his left hamstring during Monday night's loss to the Tennessee Titans.

Lee pulled up while chasing Titans tight end Jonnu Smith on a pass play.

"We anticipate him to be out for a little bit, no question about that," Dallas coach Jason Garrett told reporters without getting specific about how much time Lee would miss.

Lee missed three games with a pulled hamstring earlier this season. The 32-year-old has 27 tackles in five games this season.

Rookie first-round pick Leighton Vander Esch will move back into the starting lineup. The first-round pick ranks second on the team with 63 tackles in eight games (three starts).

Also, Cowboys offensive guard Connor Williams will undergo arthroscopic surgery on his right knee and miss Sunday's game against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Garrett said the belief is Williams' recovery will be a "short-term thing." A timetable will be pinpointed after Williams undergoes the procedure.

Williams, a rookie, has started all eight games and hasn't missed an offensive snap. The second-round pick suffered the injury during Monday's game against the Titans. He reported additional knee soreness to team trainers on Tuesday.

Either Adam Redmond or Xavier Su'a-Filo will replace Williams in the starting lineup.
