NFL Injury Report: Jay Ratliff injured for Cowboys, Dez Bryant plays

There wasn't much in the way of new names being added to the injury list for the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday, even as they fell 19-13 to the Atlanta Falcons.

The biggest story for the team on the injury front was Jay Ratliff suffering a left ankle injury, one that left him limping for the rest of the game even as he made appearances in pass defense until the game ended. Ratliff suffered a similar, serious ankle injury in preseason that forced him to miss the first four games of the season.

Another big story was Dez Bryant playing in the game after quite a bit of speculation on whether he would or would not see the field after suffering a hip injury.

The inactive list for the Cowboys prior to their loss included some big members of the rushing attack, including center Phil Costa and starting running back DeMarco Murray.
