NFL: Colts' Coach Dungy Rejoins Team Following Son's Death


National Football League coach Tony Dungy has rejoined the Indianapolis Colts, one week after his oldest son's death of an apparent suicide.

Dungy is expected to be on the sideline Sunday when the Colts host the Arizona Cardinals in the regular-season finale for both teams. Assistant head coach Jim Caldwell led the Colts while Dungy was absent. Indianapolis ran off 13 straight wins this season and now shares the best record in the league with the Seattle Seahawks.

Dungy met briefly with players and coaches Thursday and thanked them for their support since his 18-year-old son, James, was found unresponsive in his Tampa-area apartment on December 22. He was pronounced dead at University Community Hospital. James Dungy's funeral was on Tuesday.
