Jay Ratliff might be ready for week 13

Even though Bears defensive tackle Jay Ratliff has been ruled out for Sunday’s game against the Rams, he could make his debut next week, according to ESPNChicago.com.

Quarterback Jay Cutler (ankle), linebacker Lance Briggs (shoulder) and defensive tackle Jay Ratliff (groin) were all ruled out for Week 12. However, Ratliff practiced Friday (limited participation) and might be ready to make his Bears’ debut in Week 13.

Ratliff will be a nice addition to the Bears as long as he can retur to his previous form.  When he’s healthy he’s one of the best run-stoppers in the NFL.
