With Dallas Cowboys LB Sean Lee (knee) likely out for the season, the team will likely turn to either LBs Justin Durant, DeVonte Holloman or rookie Anthony Hitchens. The team also might investigate the free-agent market which includes LBs Dan Connor (Panthers), Erin Henderson (Vikings) and Jonathan Vilma (Saints).
Huddle Up: If there's a silver lining, it's that the injury happened early so the Cowboys have time to make the necessary adjustments.

Updating a previous report, the New Orleans Saints officially placed LB Jonathan Vilma (knee) on the Injured Reserve/Designated to Return list Tuesday, Sept. 2. He cannot practice with the team for the first 6 weeks of the season, and can't play for the first 8 weeks.
Huddle Up: Vilma is on the other side of 30 now and this will mark the third straight season in which he has missed 5 or more games.
