On Monday, for the first time since the tragic events of last Saturday morning, nose tackle Josh Brent returned to Cowboys Headquarters at Valley Ranch. According to reports, Brent received treatment from team doctors and met with head coach Jason Garrett who told him, per the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, that “We all love him and we’re going to be here for him.”
Garrett added that Brent was “very distraught,” this just a day after being released from an Irving jail, but said he didn’t know how the NFL would go about disciplining the young nose tackle.
“We don’t know any specifics about that,” Garrett said. “What we want to do as an organization, as players, as coaches and this entire organization is let him know he should feel supported everywhere he turns. That’s what we want to express to him. It’s a very challenging situation for him. He and Jerry are best friends. They have known each other since college. They were very close in college, very close since they’ve been here together, and it’s a really, really difficult situation for him. We want to make him feel that there are people around him who can help him get through this thing day by day.”
