Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones and nose tackle Jay Ratliff engaged in a "volcanic," "jaw-to-jaw" postgame exchange in the Cowboys locker room after last Sunday's win over the Eagles, Mike Fisher of Dallas' 105.3 The Fan reported.

From Fisher's report:

“They’re both passionate men and great men and they want to win, that’s all it is,’’ one source said. “But they were in each other’s faces. People had to intervene.’’

Ratliff has missed the Cowboys' last three games, including Sunday's comeback 20-19 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals, with a strained groin. Fisher reported that Jones approached Ratliff last Sunday in the Cowboys locker room, telling him, "We need you." That set off Ratliff.

Ratliff has missed seven games overall this season, but has piled up 25 tackles in the six games he has played. Ratliff's original replacement, Josh Brent, is being held in jail on $500,000 bond on charges of intoxicated manslaughter, accused of driving drunk and causing a fatal accident that led to teammate Jerry Brown's death.
