    IRVING -- Dallas Cowboys nose tackle Jay Ratliff returned to practice Friday and will play against the Houston Texans on Sunday with a heavy heart and a renewed spirit after burying his grandparents this week in Hahira, Ga.
    Willie Ratliff, 84, and his wife Arletha, 74, died in a house fire.
