The Cowboys may be waiting on the legal proceedings to play out before disciplining defensive tackle Josh Brent--who faces intoxication manslaughter charges stemming from the single-car crash last December that claimed the life of practice squad linebacker Jerry Brown, Jr.--but the NFL is expected to hand down their ruling in the next couple weeks.
“We expect his status for training camp to be determined before the Cowboys report to camp,” NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said, per the Dallas Morning News, adding that the league is currently reviewing the particulars of Brent’s case.
Since being released from jail on a $100,000 bond, Brent has failed two drug tests, both of which indicated that marijuana was in his system. The last failed test landed Brent back in jail last month, but he was released shortly thereafter under the condition that he no longer drives and wears a drug detection patch.
Cowboys’ spokesperson Rich Dalrymple reportedly said that the team had no comment.
