The Dallas Cowboys are hopeful that Sean Lee will be able to play for the team this season after he has surgery to repair a torn ACL on Thursday, according to ESPN Dallas' Todd Archer.

Lee tore the ligament in his left knee during Cowboys OTAs in late May and recovery time for the injury is usually 8-10 months, but head coach Jason Garrett is keeping the door open for the linebacker to return in 2014.

“We’ll see what the surgery indicates and we’ll make our decisions from there,” Garrett said.

The five year veteran previously tore the same ACL while in college at Penn State and was forced to miss the entire season with the injury.

The Cowboys have kept Lee on the 90-man roster so far, but will eventually have to place him on the injured reserve list, which would end his season, or on the physically unable to perform list which would keep him sidelined for six weeks after which he will return to the team.
