Cowboys LB Lee on returning from injury: 'I'm ready to go'

News: Lee (knee) got in some team work at Tuesday's minicamp practice, Todd Archer of ESPN Dallas reports.
Impact: Lee is slightly more than a year removed from tearing the ACL and meniscus in his left knee. He's played just 17 games over the past three seasons, but was highly effective when last seen on the field near the end of 2013. Assuming he continues to make good progress in his recovery, he's locked in as the Cowboys' starting weakside linebacker, with Rolando McClain manning the middle. Both are candidates to be useful IDP contributors, but McClain is reportedly facing the possibility of a four-game suspension, and he won't necessarily stay on the field for passing downs.

News: Lee (knee) will be a limited participant in next week's OTAs, Mickey Spagnola of DallasCowboys.com reports.
Impact: He's had a great offseason as he comes back from a torn ACL, but the Cowboys don't want Lee to overdo things. If he can stay healthy for once, and the move to weakside linebacker goes smoothly, the team is expecting him be a vital part of their defense.
