In terms of injuries, it hasn't been a good year for Dallas. As much flack Wade Phillips got for being "soft", he actually did alot of good things here, one of them being he knew how to keep this team healthy, and consistently at that. Also, I don't remember his team blowing 4th quarter leads like Garrett has(with the exception of the game against our teams we saw in 2008, when Dallas was up 13-3 in the 4th - no pun intended).
NT Jay Ratliff expected to miss remainder of the season after sports hernia surgery
Jay Ratliff is the latest Cowboys starter to be lost to surgery.
The Pro Bowl nose tackle underwent surgery for a sports hernia Thursday morning in Philadelphia. He is likely out for the remainder of the regular season.
This has been one of the more frustrating seasons of Ratliff’s career. He missed the first four games of the season with a high ankle sprain and the last four with this injury.
That means Ratliff has played in only six games this season. There are 14 players on the team with more tackles. He has no sacks and has not forced a turnover.
