Jay Ratliff injury: Dallas nose tackle leaves game with apparent injury

Grant Halverson

Jay Ratliff has left Sunday night's game against the Falcons with an apparent lower extremity injury.

Dallas Cowboys nose tackle Jay Ratliff has sustained an injury and is being examined by Cowboys trainers in the middle of Dallas's Sunday night showdown with the Atlanta Falcons.

The injury, sustained on Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan's eight-yard rush, saw Ratliff go to the ground with an apparent lower extremity injury. Ratliff was unable to leave the field immediately as trainers rushed to examine him.

At half, the Cowboys and Falcons are tied at six, with little offense emerging on Sunday night.

For the season, Ratliff has recorded 10 tackles, six of which were solo. He has also defending one pass on the year. In the Cowboys loss to the New York Giants last weekend, Ratliff recorded five tackles.

The eight-year NFL veteran out of Auburn has 222 tackles in his career, and has forced four fumbles while playing his entire career to date in Dallas.

Ratliff has yet to return to the game following the injury.
