Dallas Cowboys' defensive lineman Jay Ratliff will reportedly start the season on the PUP list. The veteran was supposed to set the tone up front for Monte Kiffin's new 4-3 defense. He'll instead miss the first six games of the season, and the Cowboys' defense may be better without Ratliff in the lineup.
