Middle linebacker Sean Lee is expected to return for the Dallas Cowboys for this week's "Monday Night Football" game at Chicago.
Lee injured his hamstring Nov. 10 in a lopsided loss to the New Orleans Saints.
Owner Jerry Jones said Tuesday that Lee would be back to face the Bears. Linebacker Justin Durant (hamstring) might miss his third game.
Lee said Thursday that he had a "great shot" to play this week if he goes through practice.
The Cowboys didn't update the status of cornerback Morris Claiborne, who is also battling a hamstring injury.
Lee leads the Cowboys with four interceptions and is second on the team with 93 tackles.
