Cowboys lose linebacker Hodge for the season

Stephen Hodge, we hardly knew you.

Todd Archer of the Dallas Morning News reports the Cowboys linebacker underwent microfracture surgery on Thursday, ending his season before it ever really started.  He was eligible to come off the PUP list Tuesday, but apparently had a setback.

A sixth-round pick in 2009, Hodge has yet to play a down for the Cowboys because of persistent knee injuries.
