The Dallas Cowboys have been living through an absolute injury nightmare at the beginning of this 2015 NFL season.

With Dez Bryant and Tony Romo both already missing for the next month or so at least, the Cowboys had to be wondering how their campaign could get any worse. Well, somehow, it has. 

Injury Hell

The Cowboys went down to the New Orleans Saints in overtime last night, a result that saw them fall to a 2-2 record. They also lost two key players.

We have already written that Lance Dunbar could be lost for the season with a potential ACL and MCL tear, but a more prominent player on the Dallas roster could also be missing upcoming games.

During the loss to the Saints, Cowboys linebacker Sean Lee suffered a vicious-looking hit to the helmet in the process of making a tackle and was taken off the field. Lee didn't return to the game after being diagnosed with a concussion.

Key Figure

Lee has been excellent since rehabbing last year’s torn ACL and moving to the outside linebacker role, and his impact and leadership on the defense will be extremely hard for the Cowboys to replace.

Entering Sunday's game, Lee topped the team in tackles and was tied for the lead in sacks and interceptions.

The 29-year old will have to pass the NFL's concussion protocol next week in order to play in what will be a real battle against the New England Patriots. For a man who has suffered documented concussions previously in his career, there is no guarantee that he will pass the tests.
