On his weekly show, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said that having the Friday team practice outside in the elements “logically would help us.”

“If we could get the field (practice field) in good enough shape” said Jones, he would prefer it to keep the setting closer to what the team may be facing at Soldier Field, but explained “I’m going to let them decide that since they are the ones out there.”

Besides heading to play on the ice tundra in Chicago – the Cowboys will also be facing former DT Jay Ratliff who was released from the Cowboys on October 16 after sitting on the PUP list – then on November 2, signed a 1-year deal with the Bears.

“In my opinion, Ratliff out to be right here with the Cowboys.” said Jones of the 8-year Cowboys veteran. “I am surprised he is playing football up there – relative to his doctors and relative to his opinion of how his health was when he left here.”
