Ratliff (knee) is inactive for Thursday's contest against the Cowboys, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Network raised hopes earlier Thursday that Ratliff would suit up. However, a key cog of the Bears' run defense will instead don sweats, with Will Sutton and Ego Ferguson helping to fill the void at defensive tackle.

According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, Ratliff (knee) is expected to be available Thursday versus the Cowboys.

Ratliff took a seat last Thursday in Detroit due to a knee injury, but with a week and a half since his last game action, the defensive tackle is slated to achieve active status in Week 14. If he suits up, he'll aid the Bears' run defense, while attempting to build upon 27 tackles (16 solo) and 4.5 sacks so far this season.

Ratliff registered a sack in Sunday's win over the Buccaneeers.

Ratliff and teammate Stephen Paea were terrors on the interior throughout the afternoon, finishing with a combined seven stops and three sacks. After missing much of the previous two seasons due to injury, Ratliff seems to have returned the Pro Bowl form he displayed with the Cowboys when he was healthy. He's notched 27 tackles and 4.5 sacks on the season.

Ratliff accumulated seven stops in Sunday's 51-23 loss to the Patriots.

A week after supplying a stunning 3.5 sacks against the Dolphins, Ratliff didn't provide much of an impact as a pass rusher, logging no quarterback hits on the afternoon. That will probably be the norm for most weeks given Ratliff's standing as an interior player, but he should remain a decent source of tackles on the defensive line. He's delivered five tackles in three of the five games he's played this season.

Ratliff delivered perhaps the best performance of his career Sunday versus the Dolphins, contributing a team-leading seven tackles and 3.5 sacks.

Showing the pass-rushing skills that hadn't appeared since his Pro Bowl days with the Cowboys, Ratliff feasted on a vulnerable Dolphins offensive line that has struggled to protect the quarterback all season. Unfortunately, Ryan Tannehill carved up the Chicago secondary when he did receive enough time in the pocket, but Ratliff was still the Bears' shining star on an afternoon in which most of the team came out flat. It's hard to imagine him continuing to supply sacks from the defensive tackle spot with much regularity, however. From the start of the 2011 season through his first three games of 2014 -- a span of 30 contests -- Ratliff had registered 3.5 sacks in total.
