The Cowboys will likely welcome back Sean Lee to the lineup on Monday.

The Cowboys can use all the help they can get on defense. Luckily for Dallas, inside linebacker Sean Lee is probable for the game on Monday night against the Bears. Lee missed the Cowboys last two games after injuring his hamstring in Week 10 against New Orleans.

Lee has been the leader of Dallas' defense this season and has played very well in the new Tampa 2 scheme. In 10 games, Lee has collected 93 total tackles, six pass deflections and four interceptions. He was named the NFC Defensive Player of the Month in October.

Lee suffered several injuries since being selected in the second round of the 2010 NFL Draft. He has yet to play a full 16 game schedule and suffered a season-ending toe injury after just six games in 2012. Veteran Ernie Sims started in Lee's place at middle linebacker in the last two games.
