It has been a busy week for the Dallas Cowboys as far as roster modifications go. They have said goodbye to a few players, brought in a new one, and are going to be seeing somebody make their first start for the club at the all-important position of quarterback on Sunday night.
Ben DiNucci will likely get the call just eight games into his NFL career, a sign of how unpredictable this season has been from the jump. He will not be the only person with a new distinction this week though as the Cowboys look to be getting help from a familiar face.
While Sunday night will mark the halfway point of the year, it looks like it will be the debut of veteran linebacker Sean Lee. The Cowboys activated him, Joe Looney, and Saivion Smith to the active 53-man roster on Saturday.

Dallas also elevated CB Saivion Smith from the practice squad.
Saivion was on the practice squad while Lee and Looney were both on injured reserve, but they will all be available should the Cowboys need them in Philadelphia.
The Cowboys defense has been among the worst in the NFL both from an on-the-field performance perspective and from a disposition one. Having somebody like Sean Lee around should theoretically raise the collective standard which is something that this group is in sore need of.
