NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Wednesday on "NFL Total Access" that the Cowboys -- at this point -- don't plan on bringing in outside veterans to compete for Lee's middle linebacker position.
Lee, meanwhile, is set to undergo surgery in a few weeks to repair his torn ACL, suffered Tuesday during the first practice of OTAs. Rapoport reported Wednesday that Lee also has a slight tear in his meniscus, according to a source informed of his injury.
The nature of the injury means Lee is almost certainly out of the picture until 2015. The Cowboys' ability to locate a capable replacement will be a major factor in their ability to stay afloat in the present.
