Found November 07, 2012 on NFL Injury Report:
The Dallas Cowboys have announced that injuries quarterback Tony Romo and defensive lineman Jay Ratliff sustained against the Atlanta Falcons are minor, reports Nick Eatman of CBSSports.com. While they are each expected to play Sunday, the status running back DeMarco Murray remains in question as he continues to rehab his sprained foot. Ratliff was diagnosed with a low-ankle injury after undergoing an MRI. He is expected to play Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles, as is Romo who suffered a minor back injury late in the Falcons’ game. Cowboys coach Jason Garrett told reporters earlier this week that Murray still has several “tests” he needs to complete in order to show he’s healthy enough to play this weekend. While Murray has been able to pass some of these tests, others remain and he will continue attempting them throughout the week. If Murray is unable to go he would once again be replaced by Felix Jones.

Another Cowboys debacle against Falcons

After last night’s prime time loss – in which many folks are choosing to focus on whether or not Atlanta did enough to wow us, rather than on how Dallas failed to take advantage of an Atlanta squad that they held out of the ‘wow zone’ – those who are fans of the Cowboys are questioning their team, their quarterback, their owner and their coach. Nothing new there… but...

Monday Musings: Doug Martin’s heroic effort, Peterson’s big day for naught, another Dallas disappointment; and other notes from week 9

There  is no other way to lead a recap of Sunday’s games than with a discussion of Doug Martin’s effort. I spent the week talking about how the loss of the best guard in football may have an impact on this line (lets give Tampa’s o-line some credit, too) and the run game. Martin and his teammates proved me wrong on game day. Oakland fought valiantly to stay in this game, but...

2012 NFL Midseason Report Card: Dallas Cowboys

What can you say about the 2012 Dallas Cowboys at the midseason point? Dallas spent money to improve the defense last offseason, which has made them a better team. Unfortunately, the Cowboys remain a disappointing 3-5 in the NFC East and battling just to get to .500, let alone for a spot in the 2012 NFL Playoffs.
