"You are just trying to get him better," Garrett said. "We made that decision because we wanted give him a full chance to come back off that thing healthy rather every week saying should we put him up or whatever, just giving him a chance to come back and be healthy from that thing. He is halfway through it. We feel like he is making progress and hopefully he will be back here in a few weeks."


Report: Jay Ratliff in danger of missing entire season


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/28/2013) Cowboys defensive tackle Jay Ratliff, who will miss at least six games while on the reserve/PUP list, "is now in danger of missing the entire season," reports the San Antonio Express-News. Ratliff has not played since injuring his groin in a game Nov. 18.

He underwent surgery for a sports hernia in December, then hurt his hamstring in the pre-camp conditioning test, the team said.

“Absolutely I’m disappointed,” Ratliff said. "But everyone knew what the issue was way beforehand. Everyone knew what it was since last year. I’m not going into much more details other than that…For sure it's not a hamstring tweak.”

Ratliff didn't rehab with the team at Valley Ranch, and he won't say why.

"Let’s just keep the focus on these guys going out there and playing and winning games," he said. "I’m not going to be here and be a distraction to anybody. I’m trying to just stay as professional as possible about the whole situation, but everyone that is involved knows what is going on.”

We feel like he’s making progress.”
