IRVING, Texas – Linebacker Sean Lee says he's "right on track" with his recovery from a late-April knee scope and anticipates being 100 percent for the start of training camp.
"I think I'm right on pace to be there," he said. "At the same point, I'm going to make sure I'm healthy in-season and ready for the first game. But I think first day of training camp will be the goal."
Lee underwent the clean-up procedure after his knee began bothering him a little during his offseason work – "squatting and lifting and running, you end up having to manage it more than you want," he said.
"It was something that was left over from my ACL surgery two years ago and we figured, let's take care of it now so we can handle more of the load in the season so I can make every practice."
Last season, Lee made his first Pro Bowl in his return from the 2014 ACL surgery. He started 14 games, the second most of his career, and posted 156 team-credited tackles, 2.5 sacks and 11 tackles for loss – all career bests.
"I feel great physically," said Lee, who is continuing to rehab his knee with the athletic training staff. "I'm getting better each week."
Said head coach Jason Garrett: "He's doing great. He has not been involved practicing football with us but his rehab has been outstanding. And typical Sean, he's in here early, he stays late. He's getting himself right."
