The Thursday injury report for the Dallas Cowboys is now out as they continue to prepare to host the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday.
Defensive tackle Jay Ratliff (groin) underwent surgery for a sports hernia on Thursday in Philadelphia, and will most likely be placed on injured reserve by Sunday. He is out this week regardless.
Linebacker DeMarcus Ware (elbow) failed to practice for a second consecutive day because of a hyper-extended elbow. He is expected to play Sunday and will wear a brace.
Wide receiver Dez Bryant (finger), cornerback Morris Claiborne (concussion), guard Nate Livings (concussion), running back DeMarco Murray (foot), and safety Charlie Peprah (foot) all practiced on a limited basis after all sat out on Wednesday. Bryant intends to play with a splint on his fractured left index finger after deciding to put off surgery.
Guard Ryan Cook (knee), running back Felix Jones (knee), and tackle Tyron Smith (ankle) all practiced fully again on Wednesday and all three are expected to be ready for the game Sunday.
