OXNARD, Calif. -- The Dallas Cowboys have placed defensive tackle Jay Ratliff and guards Mackenzy Bernadeau and Nate Livings on injured lists before the opening workout of training camp.

Ratliff and Bernadeau were put on the physically unable to perform list Sunday. Livings went on the non-football injury list.

There was no immediate word on their injuries. All three are projected starters.

The Cowboys signed offensive tackle Demetress Bell and wide receiver Lavasier Tuinei and placed them on the non-football injury list. Dallas also signed quarterback Alex Tanney of Monmouth.

Offensive lineman Ryan Cook, deep snapper Louis-Philippe Ladouceur (LAH'-doo-sahr) and guard Ronald Leary also were placed on the non-football injury list (see full story).

Dolphins: Dion Jordan sidelined
DAVIE, Fla. -- Miami Dolphins top draft pick Dion Jordan is sitting out the start of training camp because his surgically repaired right shoulder has not fully healed, and he has been placed on the non-football injury list.

The defensive end and linebacker from Oregon wore uniform No. 95 Sunday but watched the first practice from the sideline. He and coach Joe Philbin declined to say how long Jordan is likely to be sidelined.

"It's really frustrating to not be out there," Jordan said, "but I understand my health is the main concern."

Jordan can join the active roster at any time before the regular season. If he isn't activated by then, he must remain out for the first six weeks of the season.

The third overall pick in the draft, Jordan signed a $20.6 million, four-year contract Saturday that included a $13.3 million signing bonus. He said he was told in the past couple of days that he would be placed on the NFI list (see full story).

Browns: Mingo agrees to 4-year deal
Nothing else is in rookie linebacker Barkevious Mingo's way but some blockers.

The Browns signed the No. 6 overall pick in this year's NFL draft to a four-year contract on Sunday. The deal, which is worth over $16 million, includes a team option in the fifth year.

Mingo's agent, Jeff Guerriero, finalized the package with the Browns early in the morning. Mingo had been the team's only unsigned rookie as the sides clashed over "offset" language. However, the agreement means the speedy outside linebacker will not miss any significant time and will be on the field Thursday when the Browns open their first training camp under first-year coach Rob Chudzinski.

The Browns were able to keep the offset language in the contract, which means they will not have to pay him the remainder of his deal if he is cut before it expires and signs with another team. Mingo will receive his entire signing bonus by December (see full story).
