According to Calvin Watkins of ESPNDallas.com, Cowboys defensive end DeMarcus Ware and defensive tackle Jay Ratliff might be limited early on in training camp as they work their way back.
Ware is still rehabbing from shoulder surgery and Ratliff underwent sports hernia surgery late last year.
“We’ll have to monitor those guys and a couple of guys and see how they are,” Garrett said Thursday afternoon from Cowboys Stadium. “We’ll do the conditioning test on Day 1 of training camp and see where they are physically after that and make some decisions. We have a plan for each of those guys going into it, based on what their injury has been and different start dates for some guys, different ways to work back into training camp and work back into football.”
Ware expects to start practicing with his teammates on Sunday. Garrett might have other plans.
“We’ll just see how he is,” Garrett said of Ware. “He made great progress in the offseason. He was involved in a lot of the individual drills that we did throughout the OTAs and the minicamps and we just kept him out of the more competitive 11-on-11 situations. He’s made great progress coming off the injuries from last year and he works very hard at it. We’ll certainly be smart going forward and see how he is each and every day. He seems excited and he seems ready to go.”
