Jay Ratliff's agent Mark Slough appeared to be blindsided by a report on NBC that the Cowboys have are done with his client.
NBC sideline reporter Michele Tafoya made her report based on a conversation she had with Jerry Jones.
According to Tafoya: “My interpretation based on Jerry Jones’ body language and his tone is that Jay Ratliff will not be playing for the Cowboys anymore.”
Slough's response: "News to me. That has not been communicated to me. If a decision like that has been made, I don't know about it."
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones also distanced himself from the report after the game. He said no decision has been made on Ratliff.
“I’m not familiar with that report,” Jones said “Didn’t hear it, and certainly our plans are to visit, not only with him, but medical, look and see what we’re going to do with our timing on any pup or IR considerations. But we’ve still got a lot of work and decisions to make there."
Ratliff hasn’t played since he hurt his groin last November and underwent surgery for a sports hernia. He missed all training camp and the preseason because of the hernia and a hamstring injury, forcing the Cowboys to place him the physically unable to perform list.
Ratliff is eligible to return to action this week.
