Cowboys defensive tackle Josh Brent’s suspension has been modified so as to allow him to return to the team facility on Monday, owner and general manager Jerry Jones told reporters after the Sunday night win over the Saints.
According to Jones, Brent will still serve all of his ten-game suspension, and won’t be permitted to practice until Week 9, as planned. But his being allowed to work out and attend meeting this week is two weeks earlier than originally planned.
“Josh Brent will be at the facility,” Jones said. “He won’t practice, but he’ll be at the facility to continue everything but practicing with the team.”
Jones wouldn’t venture any guesses as to when Brent would play, but wouldn’t dismiss the notion that he could go with the team to London for their Week 10 matchup with the Jaguars, the first game he’ll be eligible to play.
“All I really know, without being defensive, he will be back with the team tomorrow, and we’ll go from there,” Jones said. “I know that he’s had a lot of time. He’s very contrite. He understands how much sorrow that he was responsible for, and I think he’s going to be inspired to try to do the right thing.”
