Baker said to keep Ratliff fresh during the season taking him off the field on some first and second downs might work because the team has confidence in the abilities of Josh Brent and Sean Lissemore to play some nose tackle.

The Cowboys plan to limit Jay Ratliff's playing time in order to keep him fresh.
