Cowboys Rule Out Defensive Tackle For Rest Of Regular Season

He suffered a strained pec in Sunday's win over the Houston Texans.

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said Tuesday that defensive tackle Johnathan Hankins will miss the rest of the regular season but should be back for the playoffs.

Hankins will now miss the next four weeks with the pectoral strain, but should be available for the playoffs, given the words from Jerry Jones.

The thirty-year-old has been a solid depth piece for the Cowboys' defensive line this season, recording seven total tackles over five games since being claimed off waivers from the Las Vegas Raiders.
