The latest injury news for the Cowboys heading in the game with the Bengals.
The Cowboys finally made a decision on center Phil Costa and that was to move him to IR. Costa hasn't played in the past six games, forcing a rotation of Ryan Cook (who has dealt with his own injury problems) and Mackenzy Bernadeau. Cook is back healthy and looks like he'll man the center spot from here on out.
For the good news, Jay Ratliff was back at Wednesday's practice. Josh Brent has been doing a good job of filling in for the Rat, but with the defense struggling, they could use a boost from the veteran. Ratliff adds an element of disruption and pass rush in the backfield that no other Cowboys defensive lineman possesses.
[UPDATE] ESPN originally reported Ratliff practiced but the official report says he did not participate. Sorry for the confusion.
