BRACED FOR THE RACE: Dallas Cowboys DT Jason Hatcher will play with a neck brace

BRACED FOR THE NFC EAST RACE - Dallas Cowboys DT Jason Hatcher will play with a neck brace - 2013-2014 Dallas Cowboys schedule 2013 2014

Dallas Cowboys defensive tackle Jason Hatcher said he’s been outfitted with a neck brace that will reduce the chance he gets another stinger. It’s so restrictive, it keeps him from moving his neck back.

“I can’t even see in my stance, hardly,” he said Thursday, smiling about it with reporters. “I have to get down super low.”

But he said he’ll take part of the brace off down the line so he can have more range of movement.

“I’ll take that off eventually, in about three or four weeks from now, I’ll take that off so I can get my neck back,” he said.

Hatcher was limited again in practice Thursday. The native of Jena, La., missed the New Orleans game two weeks ago because of a stinger.

“That hurt me bad, just going home to my home state and not being able to help my team,” he said. “I’m not saying the outcome would have been different or whatnot, but I’m pretty sure knowing me, a healthy me, I could have done some stuff to help my team. So I’m excited to be back, just excited to see how this game is going to go for me, as well as my team.”
