Cowboys linebacker Sean Lee took another step in his return from major knee surgery Wednesday when he participated in seven-on-seven drills during OTA practices for the first time.
While Lee has received a clean bill of health from doctors after missing the 2014 season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee, the Cowboys have brought him back slowly during the offseason.
He has only participated in individual drills with no seven-on-seven or 11-on-11 work until Wednesday when they upped his work load.
“Things are going smooth. Hopefully it will continue to progress,” he said. “I feel good. I feel great. I am ready to go. It’s a matter of time before I will be doing a lot of things. When they want to put me in team [drills], they will.”
Lee was excited to do the seven-one-seven work because of the competition aspect of it.
But the Cowboys will continue to handle him with care until training camp.
