NFL Injury Report:
Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett told the NFL Network
that he “absolutely” expects nose tackle Jay Ratliff to be back with the team
Ratliff is coming off an injury-plagued campaign during
which he was limited to six games. When he was able to suit up for Dallas, the
defensive lineman only amassed 16 tackles with no sacks.
Ratliff was healthy enough to be arrested for DUI this
offseason, leading some to speculate that the veteran could be a potential
roster casualty as the Cowboys look to decrease their salary cap burden.
However, NFL.com points out that Dallas wouldn’t actually
save money by cutting Ratliff based on how his contract is structured. Garrett
also noted that the team believes the seven-year pro is a scary good player when
healthy. Ratliff is expected to fit in well with new defensive coordinator
Monte Kiffin’s 4-3 scheme.
