The expectations in Dallas were muted a bit during training camp when ILB Sean Lee got off to a bit of a slow start. He wasn't bad, mind you, but he wasn't having the breakout type of camp many expected or hoped from him. The thinking even might have changed in some camps that Keith Brooking would maintain his starting job another season, or part of one, as Lee continued to get up to the level needed to start. Instead, Lee opened Week One ahead of Brooking and showed he's doing just fine with an interception and some strong play in helping hold the Jets to 2.8 yards per rush attempt. Lee might be best in coverage right now — he picked off Peyton Manning twice as a rookie — but our sources indicate Lee is reading his keys and filling gaps well as a run stopper, too. That's a role Brooking played very well in 2009 but less so last season.
