After a seemingly injury-free week for the Cowboys, one of their best defensive players is now questionable to play Sunday.

Jay Ratliff, a Pro Bowl defensive tackle is having even a better season in 2009, sustained a knee injury in practice Friday. The Cowboys are still evaluating him and his status is uncertain for the game.

The Cowboys practiced indoors Friday at Carroll High School in nearby Southlake, one of their many practice spots of this season. The indoor bubble covers a 50-yard artificial turf field.

In six games this season, Ratliff has 31 tackles and 2.0 sacks, along with a team-high five tackles for loss.
