Nose tackle Jay Ratliff won’t practice Monday or Tuesday and is not likely to play in Wednesday night’s preseason finale against Miami while he recovers from a high ankle sprain.
But coach Jason Garrett did not rule him out of the season opener against the New York Giants.
“He’s made progress since the game,” coach Jason Garrett said. “He’s not going to practice right now. We’ll just see how he is day to day. So we'll just continue to evaluate him. We feel like he has a chance to practice at some point in the near future and possibly play in this ball game.”
The injury could keep Ratliff out two to four weeks. The opener is nine days away, so a turnaround in time for the Giants game would be optimistic.
