The Indianapolis Star reports that Tony Dungy has returned to the Colts and will be on the sidelines for Sunday's game against the Buzzsaw That Is The Arizona Cardinals. He is scheduled to conduct this afternoon's practice session. He has been away from his team for exactly a week and spoke at his son's funeral two days ago.
On the concept of returning from grief, "America's Rabbi" Shmuley Boteach wrote a fascinating, if somewhat ill-timed, piece on his site Tuesday relating Brett Favre's difficulties the last few years to his rushing back after the death of his father three years ago, holding Dungy up as an example of the correct way to deal with grief. (If such a thing exists.) Dungy was not available for comment but is expected to speak to the press this afternoon or tomorrow.
