Official injury report: Jay Ratliff didn't practice

IRVING, Texas -- Nose tackle Jay Ratliff dressed for Wednesday's practice, but he did not participate, according to the Cowboys' official injury report.

Ratliff has missed the last two games with a strained groin. Washington's Alfred Morris and Philadelphia's Bryce Brown both rushed for well over 100 yards against in those games. The Cowboys hope to have Ratliff return to help stop Cincinnati's BenJarvus Green-Ellis, who has a streak of three consecutive 100-yard rushing games.

Running back DeMarco Murray (foot), cornerback Orlando Scandrick (hand) and safety Charlie Peprah (foot) also did not practice.

Murray, who returned against the Eagles after a six-week absence, anticipates practicing Thursday. Scandrick and Peprah will not be available Sunday against the Bengals.

The rest of the Cowboys on the 53-man roster were full participants in Wednesday's practice.
