    And as usual the boys are being dumb about it; claiming he might only miss one or two games.

    Show me anyone else we have had with a High Ankle Strain that came back and was really effective in less than 6 weeks.

    Yeah, I just assumed he was headed to the PUP list. I watched the game this morning but totally missed this injury. It would be sweet if he only misses a game or two...crossing fingers.

    Once you have attended even one practice you are not eligible for the PUP list. The PUP list is not a lesser version of Injured Reserve wherein someone can come back later. It is a list for players who due to surgery or some other off season circumstance, cannot practice or play.

    Thanks for the explanation Hos. I thought it was anytime before the regular season.

    No sweat man. Just like an Eagles fan having sex, no sweat.

    One reason I hate pre-season is because you have to stash injured players on your roster, make them inactive, and play thin. But every team has this issue. We just think we have more injuries than anyone else because this is the team we all love. In reality, every team is sweating as the real games approach.

    Yeah, I was listening to Sirius XM NFL Radio yesterday. Sounds like the Giants have some OL problems also. And are starting to have secondary problems again too.
    Strength is still front 7 though, and offense other than OL.

    Eagles, lost Peters for year a while ago, but replacement is struggling. Vick will be injured by game 6 IMO....

    Redskins, sounds they have a lot of nagging injuries too, or people just coming back off of injuries....

    So it's not just us, you are right, just hits harder when it's home.

    Yes every team has injuries somebody else will have to pick up some of the slack until big Rat can come back.

    When he comes back he should be back or at least close to his old self since his foot problem is healed.

    ARLINGTON, Texas - Even though Jay Ratliff missed several practices and the first two preseason games because of a foot injury, the theory all along was that he would be playing if the regular season were upon us.
    That’s probably not the case anymore, and it’s not because of the plantar fasciitis that has bothered him all offseason.
    Ratliff now has a high-ankle sprain with which to deal, suffering the damage in the second quarter of Saturday’s 20-19 win over the Rams at Cowboys Stadium. Before his injury, Ratliff was flying around the ball and playing like a guy who has made four straight Pro Bowls.

    Personally, I'd start Spears at NT over Brent or Calloway.
