Cowboys Injury Update & Practice Report: Welcome Back, Sean Lee!

Cowboys fans had much to be thankful for as the leader on defense returned to the practice field.

We knew it was coming, at least everybody in the organization said it was coming. But to actually hear that Sean Lee is indeed back at Cowboys practice and is prepping for the game against the Bears is enough to cheer any Cowboys' fan. The star middle linebacker's hamstring has healed enough to allow him to play after missing two games and part of a third. It couldn't happen soon enough.

Along with Lee, linebacker Justin Durant returned to practice, but his starting position could be up for grabs as Kyle Wilber has played very well in Durant's absence. Either way, the Cowboys linebacker corps has its star back and has some depth, too.

Morris Claiborne and Dwayne Harris did not practice, an indication they might not be able to go on Monday. New fullback Tyler Clutts attended his first practice today.

The Cowboys practiced outside in some inclement weather today, good preparation for what looks to be a very, very cold night in Chicago on Monday.
