It sounds like Dallas Cowboys linebacker Sean Lee will miss the Cowboys' Week 10 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers after suffering a concussion in Week 9.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said Tuesday that Lee's status is “probably doubtful” when it comes to playing this Sunday. He will go through the NFL's concussion protocol process.

“We are taking into consider that he had an earlier concussion this year,” Jones said on “Shan and RJ” on 105.3 The Fan. “We are looking at it through that perspective. He will have to pass certain tests throughout the week. That’s going to be quite a challenge for him since one of the parts of the test will start with is that he’s had an earlier concussion in the year, so that’s quite a hurdle to overcome when you’ve had another concussion.”

Lee has racked up 66 tackles, an interception and a sack in eight games this season after moving to outside linebacker before the season. He is an integral part of the Cowboys' defense, and his absence will be felt in both the run and pass game.
