Dallas Cowboys linebacker Sean Lee has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Philadelphia Eagles, reports ESPN.com's Adam Schefter.

The Cowboys, with a victory, would win the NFC East and lock up a playoff spot.

Lee has missed the past two games with a sprained neck, which he suffered in a loss to the Chicago Bears on Dec. 9.

Lee has 99 combined tackles with a team-leading four interceptions and six passes defensed.

He also missed two games in late November with a hamstring injury.
