Tank Johnson Misses Practice

Nosetackle Terry “Tank” Johnson had to miss practice today for the Cowboys with a sprained ankle. 

Coach Wade Phillips says Tank should be able to play Sunday against the Redskins.

Folks, this why you have depth on your roster, especially up front.  Last year, Jason Ferguson, was gone in the first game and the Cowboys were lucky Jay Ratliff grew into the position, but he never had a backup.

Ratliff is still the starter at nosetackle ahead of Johnson, but now the Cowboys have a legit backup in Marcus Spears, if Johnson can’t go the whole game.

Small move, but one that leads to championships.
