The Dallas Cowboys opened the 2015 NFL season with two wins, but the six straight losses that have followed have left the franchise in a desperate situation as we head into week 10 of the NFL season.

The 'Boys find themselves on a 2-6 record and three games back from the New York Giants who sit atop the NFC East. Nothing less than a road win against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this weekend will do if they want to keep their very slim hopes of playoff football alive.

Familiar feeling

Unfortunately, with their postseason prospects already hanging by a thread, the Cowboys will be without one key player for Sunday's contests after Friday's injury reports were published today.

As reported by ESPN reporter Todd Archer, Sean Lee has officially been ruled out for Dallas with a concussion.

The linebacker suffered the head injury against the Eagles last weekend and, with it being his second of the season, he is yet to have cleared the NFL's concussion protocol.

When on the field this year, Lee has been a dominant figure on the Dallas defense. He has 66 total tackles, one sack and one interception.

Problems to solve

And his absence, combined with the questionable status looming over the head of fellow linebacker Rolando McClain, leaves the Cowboys with yet another injury headache.

'America's Team' effectively need to have a perfect end to the season if they are to even come close to a playoff spot. If they do miss out, however, they will be able to point to a campaign littered with injuries as a partial excuse.
