Pro Bowl linebacker expected to return to Dallas Cowboys’ lineup in time for playoff push

Huge news for the Dallas Cowboys.

Former Pro Bowl linebacker Sean Lee is expected to return to the Dallas Cowboys' lineup during Sunday's game against the New York Giants, according to Pro Football Talk.

Lee has been inactive for Dallas' last three games due to a lingering hamstring injury, which he re-aggravated early in a Nov. 12 loss to the Atlanta Falcons. He had previously missed two games earlier in the season after experiencing the injury initially.

Lee was a full participant during Friday's practice after being taken off the team's injury report. Dallas has seven players listed as questionable for Sunday's game, including cornerback Orlando Scandrick (back), right tackle La'el Collins (back) and defensive lineman David Irving (concussion), none of whom practiced this week. However, Collins is expected to play.

The Cowboys are currently "in the hunt" for a playoff spot as the 10th seed in the NFC at 6-6 overall. Lee's return will be crucial for Dallas as it looks to make a strong push during its final four regular season games and playing some of them without Ezekiel Elliott.
