Dallas Cowboys NT Jay Ratliff was arrested and charged with driving while intoxicated in the early-morning hours Tuesday, Jan. 22. He crashed his pickup truck into a 18-wheeler, according to a senior police officer. Any NFL player that is arrested is subject to the NFL conduct policy which could result in a fine or suspension.
Huddle Up: Yes, Ratliff just had a teammate killed by another teammate who was driving drunk. So the answer to the obvious follow-up question is no, apparently they will never learn. Ratliff can expect a sit-down with Roger Goodell, which could lead to him sitting down for a game or more next year.

Huddle Up: Ratliff plus the middle of the Dallas defense; him missing a couple games could open the Cowboys up to opposing running backs--specifically Marshawn Lynch when the run-heavy Seahawks host the potentially Ratliff-less Cowboys in Week 2.
