Speaking on his weekly radio show on KRLD, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said that linebacker Sean Lee will return to the lineup this week.

Lee has been battling a hamstring injury that has kept him out the past two games. This is good news for a Cowboys defense that's been depleted due to injuries all season.

With the Eagles surging, the Cowboys need to continue winning games to stay ahead in the NFC East. As of now, Dallas leads the Eagles due to a head-to-head tiebreaker.

Getting Lee back should help an otherwise poor rushing defense against a tough Bears squad that features running back Matt Forte.
