OXNARD, Calif. -- Dallas Cowboys owner/general manager Jerry Jones wasn't talkative when reporters followed him after Wednesday's practice.

Jones allowed for only one question to be asked, about his concern for defensive tackle Jay Ratliff missing this week and most likely next week's practices.

"Well, I'm not, and I think that's the best way to go," Jones said. "That's all I got, right now."

Jones then wondered where one of the team doctors was, behind him, and left for the day.

The Cowboys have numerous injuries along the defensive line. They were missing four players and signed two, Landon Cohen and George Selvie, on Wednesday.

Jones hasn't spoken to reporters since Saturday's news conference to open training camp.

Several events have occurred regarding the Cowboys since Jones' last full chat with reporters: The team is close to a naming rights deal; a slew of injuries, particularly hamstrings, have occurred to the team; and how the Cowboys have performed thus far in camp are some of the things reporters would like to talk to Jones about.
