Unfortunately, for the news today wasn't so great. According to Patrik Walker of , he will need surgery to repair the torn pectoral muscle he suffered in New Orleans, likely ending his season. Frazier is arguably the Cowboy's best special team player to go along with being a solid backup at the position. Now, look for rookie Safety to get an opportunity to build on his stellar that included 3 interceptions.

You have to take the good with the bad in these situations. The Cowboys have lost a valuable player/backup safety but won't be without their All-Pro tackle for as long as they thought. They have to lick their wounds and be ready for another big test against the Packers in Arlington on Sunday.
