Two big injuries to middle linebackers. Dallas will lose Sean Lee for the year due to a very severe case of turf toe, with a complete tear. Carolina will lose Jon Beason to a knee injury that he suffered in Week 4 -- the second straight season he's been lost for most of the season. Both of these injuries are at a severe enough level that these players may not be the same when they return. We're already getting kind of used to Beason no longer being the player he once was, but if Sean Lee can't come back at the same level that's a real shame.
