Jerry Jones: Emotion fueled tiff with Jay Ratliff
Ratliff has missed seven games this season due to injuries, including the last three games with a groin injury.
"Jay's had injuries that are, just this year, that are just mind-boggling considering the player that he has been for us," Jones said on KRLD-FM.
According to sources, following the Cowboys-Eagles game on Dec. 2, Jones offered encouragement to Ratliff in regards to him returning to the field. Ratliff, an emotional player who walks around the locker room with a brooding presence, reacted in an angry tone. Jones and Ratliff needed to be separated. Ratliff then stormed out of the locker room before reporters were let in.
"I've let the emotion of the game, the other day, get to us," Jones said. "But that's just the way things work sometimes and (Ratliff) wants to win and he wants to do everything he can for the team and that's the way I want it."
