Another season starts in a few months and many fans believed that the Dallas Cowboys were a good bet to win Super Bowl XLIX with +2500 odds at America’s Bookie, but that was before linebacker Sean Lee got hurt.
Lee reportedly has a torn ACL in his left knee and he will likely miss next season. He was hurt during the first organized team activity workout yesterday, as he went down while being blocked by rookie guard Zack Martin. He had to be helped off the field by trainers.
The team said that Lee injured his left knee, but according to the Dallas Morning News, other sources said that an MRI exam revealed the torn ACL.
Lee was an anchor of the Dallas defense with 99 tackles and four interceptions in 11 games last season despite missing five games because of injuries. He also missed 10 games in 2012 due to a toe injury. Lee has 294 tackles and 11 interceptions in 46 career games over four seasons and his absence will make an impact for the Cowboys on the field and in terms of Super Bowl XLIX odds.
The Cowboys, who are at +215 to win the NFC East at America’s Bookie, saw their odds to win Super Bowl XLIX change from +2500 to +4300. It’s safe to say that replacing Lee will not be easy but at least the Cowboys will have plenty of time to figure out what to do and they have had to play without Lee before.
