Dallas Cowboys middle linebacker Sean Lee suffered an ACL injury this week in OTA practice that will see him miss the entire 2014 NFL season, and fellow NFL players have shared their fears as a result of the injury.

Former Cowboys teammate DeMarcus Ware heard about the injury to Lee before he started his first offseason practice for his new team, the Denver Broncos.

After the practice he explained his thoughts on the situation for NFL players at the moment. Ware says that the Broncos will be ultra cautious to avoid similar situations happening to them like that of Dallas.

The premier pass rusher was cut by the Cowboys in March before signing a big deal for the Broncos a short time later. He admits that he fears injury, and he insists his team will be doing all they can to avoid a similar fate.

"First of all, as players, we're really concerned," said Ware. "In the first meeting we had here this morning, we said we're thinking about our health.

"We're not trying to go as hard. It's not like you have pads on. It's just about taking care of each other, but being able to get your mental reps in. You're still trying to be physical, but having the right technique."

Chicago Bears receiver Domenik Hixon posted comments on Facebook Tuesday that revealed that he too had suffered an ACL injury tear on Tuesday.
