Lee came back from injury to play in the 45-28 defeat to the Chicago Bears, but was withdrawn from it with a neck injury.
"You have to just kind of rehab and go out there and play," he told the Cowboys' official website. "You've got to watch it, but I'm going to play through it.
"I got hit on that toss play, when I slipped and tried to kind of hit his leg. Basically, it's one of those deals where it locked up on me for about a minute and then it would relax, but every time I hit it would get worse and worse and got to a point where the neck was so locked up I couldn't do my job anymore."
Lee admitted after the game that he spends too much time injured.
