    I want a complete list so that I can present it to a Cowboys hater friend of mine who is trying to give the excuse of Roethlisberger and a few other Steelers missing time for their ho-hum season so far. I told him that it's nothing compared to what the Cowboys have experienced injury-wise this season, especially now with the news of Dez. :(

    Bruce Carter, elbow, IR
    Sean Lee, toe, IR
    Phil Costa, ankle, IR
    Barry Church, Achilles, IR
    Orlando Scandrick, hand, IR
    Matt Johnson, hamstring, IR
    Chris Jones, knee, IR
    Kenyon Coleman, triceps, IR
    Jay Ratliff, groin, missed 7 games
    DeMarco Murray, foot, missed 6 games

    Those are the big ones.

    Overall, the Cowboys have 12 guys on IR (not counting Dez). The Steelers have 3.

    Thank you, FiveRings and Hostile. I'm gonna use Hostile's list and add DeMarco and Ratliff, since they missed a significant amount of time. Probably will add Brent to the list, even though he didn't get hurt. I'm not trying to have a contest of who can make the bigger excuses for their team, I just want him to know that we've had more than our fair share of struggles on the injury front.

    EDIT: Just saw jimnabby's list. That's perfect. I'll just copy and paste that and add some of Hostile's. Thank you.

    Not just the big names, even the backups have gone down, especially at safety. Then you got others missing time constantly, just been a crazy season.

    Coleman should be added, along with Spencer missing time. Jenkins missing time, Felix being injured every time he gets out of bed, Lissemore missing time, even Tyron missing time, and thats not even mentioning draft picks. Matt, McSurdy, and Coale gone.

    The list is pretty long at this point.

    It doesn't include Josh Brent yet either.

    Or Dez if the hand specialist says no go.

    Man 8-8 would be a great coaching performance for sure.

    And this doesn't include the guys who missed games, most of whom missed multiple games:

    Anthony Spencer
    Demarco Murray
    Tyron Smith
    Miles Austin
    Jay Ratliff
    Mike Jenkins
    Jason Hatcher
    Charlie Peprah
    Dan Connor
    Sean Lissemore
    Marcus Spears

    Then of course there's Josh Brent

    And Claiborne and Ernie Sims got knocked out of yesterday's game, status TBD.

    Just unfrigginbelievable. Keep in mind this is just off the top of my head, if you looked further into it I bet there are some I'm forgetting.

    At least 16 starters/regular contributors on our defense have either been placed on IR or missed significant time this year. The only one's who haven't are Ware, Carr and Sensabaugh.

    Didn't really consider them significant, maybe Coleman but definitely not Cook

    Think Cook became "significant " after Costa went down during the 1st series of the season. Even if he's less than impressive he was another starter that was lost to injury...

    Shaping up to be a off season of watching and wondering if all our injured will be ready for camp.
