The Cowboys will go into the 2020 season without a couple of their key contributors, at least initially, as Linebacker Sean Lee and Left Tackle La’el Collins were placed on IR today. The new rules will allow both of them to come back after Week 3.
In the meantime, 5-year vet Cam Erwin, 2-year vet Brandon Knight, and Rookie Terence Steele will have to hold down Dak’s blindside.
This is another IR stink in a career seemingly full of injuries for the hard-hitting Lee. Justin March, who the Cowboys left off their officially 53 initially, will be signed and could cover some of Lee’s snaps in his absence.
It will be interesting to see, with the new IR rules, how much teams bounce players back and forth this season.
