As it turns out, Jerry Jones and Jay Ratliff did, in fact, have a verbal confrontation following the team’s 20-19 victory over the Bengals in Cincinnati on Sunday. Jones confirmed his much in his weekly appearance on 105.3-FM “The Fan” on Tuesday morning.
“Well, you’ve heard it said that what goes on in there stays in there,” Jones said, per the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “It didn’t.”
Jones doesn’t seem to have any lingering animosity over the incident whatsoever. The confrontation, which started when Jones reportedly made a comment about the All-Pro nose tackle’s inability to return from a groin injury, is just something that happens sometimes in NFL locker rooms, Jones said--particularly on such an emotional day as Sunday.
“We let the emotion of the game that other day get to us,” Jones said. “That’s the way things work sometimes.”
Jason Garrett said Monday that Ratliff will not be disciplined in any way for the spat.
