Rob Ryan says Sean Lee is as good a communicator, leader as Tedy Bruschi

Defensive coordinator Rob Ryan said linebacker Sean Lee, who returned to practice on Friday, is important to the defense not only because of his play, but also his communication. He said it’s better than he imagined.

“He’s been outstanding, I mean, more than you could ever anticipate,” Ryan said. “I like to compare him to Tedy Bruschi, who is one of the finest leaders I’ve ever been around. That’s this guy here.”

Lee has missed only one game, due to a dislocated wrist. The second-year player leads NFL linebackers in interceptions with four.

Ryan said he does not think Lee will be behind when the Cowboys take the field against the Giants on Sunday night.

“You know Lee. He’s been up here all morning, even before the sun came up,” Ryan said. “He’ll be back up to speed. He can’t get enough football. So he’ll be on point, and we expect him to play the whole game.”

Lee is the most intellegent player on the defense, it shows up. We need to get some intellegent dbs that will look for the ball and cover somebody.
