04:09 PM ET 12.13 | The Dallas Cowboys will be without nose tackle Jay Ratliff for the remainder of the regular season after the eight-year veteran underwent surgery to repair a sports hernia on Thursday morning. His recovery is expected to take anywhere from three to six weeks. Ratliff figured to slide into the spot vacated by Josh Brent, who is not playing following the accident that killed Jerry Brown, but with Ratliff sidelined the Cowboys will have to rely on other option to plug the holes in their thinning defensive line. Sean Lissemore, the team's third-string nose tackle should see a majority of snaps at the position on Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Rob Calloway, a rookie out of Saginaw Valley State was called up to the practice squad to provide depth on the Cowboys' defensive line.

How did he get hurt ? He hasn't plaid. What was he bench pressing beer kegs ?

Only out 3-6 weeks?
That means he'll be back in time for the playoffs....wait, Nevermind!

What are they now, about 4th or 5 string starting in the middle of that defense?

He probably went ahead with his surgery to spite Jerry after that sideline blowup they had.

"Ratliff figured to slide into the spot vacated by Josh Brent, who is not playing following the accident that killed Jerry Brown..."

Make that "not playing ever again".
