Another Dallas Cowboys player was arrested this week for allegedly driving drunk.

Grapevine police said starting nose tackle Jay Ratliff crashed his pickup into an 18-wheeler on State Highway 114 just after 12:36 a.m. Tuesday.

There were no injuries, but Ratliff reportedly refused a field sobriety test and was taken in for a blood test.

He was charged with DWI and bonded out of jail a few hours later.

The 31-year-old just finished his eighth NFL season. He's a four-time Pro Bowler, but only played five games this season because he couldn't stay healthy.

Ratliff's good friend and teammate Josh Brent was also arrested this season and charged with drunken driving after a wreck that killed practice squad linebacker Jerry Brown.

Brent now faces up to 20 years in prison if he's convicted of intoxication manslaughter.
