    Former Cowboys defensive tackle Jay Ratliff, who was released from the Physically Unable to Perform list back on October 16, will meet with the Kansas City Chiefs and the Chicago Bears this week, ESPN’s Ed Werder reports.

    According to the report, both teams have looked into Ratliff’s medical status and concluded that he’ll be ready to return in the next month. The four-time Pro Bowler hasn’t played a snap since November of last year, and spent the first six weeks of the season on the PUP list after re-aggravating his surgically repaired groin early in camp. He was cut in the middle of Week Seven.
