The Dallas Cowboys placed DT Jay Ratliff on the Reserve/Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list Tuesday, Aug. 27, and he will be required to miss at least the first six games of the regular season. The earliest he can be activated is Oct. 14.
Huddle Up: Tough loss for the Cowboys, as Ratliff is a solid performer in the middle of their defense.

Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garret said DT Jay Ratliff (hamstring) is making progress with a hamstring issue. The hope is that Ratliff will get some preseason games in and be ready for Week 1.
Huddle Up: Good news for one of the mainstays of a Dallas defensive front that has seen more than its fair share of injuries already this preseason.

Dallas Cowboys NT Jay Ratliff remains on the Physically-Unable-to-Perform list after straining his hamstring while taking the conditioning test.
Huddle Up: Hamstrings linger, so it may be a couple days before Ratliff is able to pass the test. But right now there are no concerns about his availability for the start of the season.

Dallas Cowboys DL Jay Ratliff (hamstring) missed practice Sunday, July 21, due to a strained hamstring, and his return date is unclear. He underwent an MRI and is awaiting the results.
Huddle Up: It's been a rough start to camp for the Cowboys' D-line, with Ratliff's injury and backup DE Jay Crawford suffering a torn Achilles' that will sideline him for the season. Now the team must hope that Ratliff's MRI doesn't reveal anything nearly as crushing.

Dallas Cowboys NT Jay Ratliff was arrested and charged with driving while intoxicated in the early-morning hours Tuesday, Jan. 22. He crashed his pickup truck into a 18-wheeler, according to a senior police officer. Any NFL player that is arrested is subject to the NFL conduct policy which could result in a fine or suspension.
Huddle Up: Yes, Ratliff just had a teammate killed by another teammate who was driving drunk. So the answer to the obvious follow-up question is no, apparently they will never learn. Ratliff can expect a sit-down with Roger Goodell, which could lead to him sitting down for a game or more next year.
