OXNARD, Calif. (AP) â€” Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones says former defensive tackle Josh Brent is out of rehabilitation and could have his future with the NFL resolved before the team leaves training camp in California in two weeks.
Jones said Wednesday from training camp that Brent was released from rehab on Monday.
The 26-year-old Brent was convicted in January of intoxication manslaughter for the December 2012 crash that killed Jerry Brown, a Cowboys practice squad player. He was sentenced to 180 days in jail and 10 years’ probation. He left jail last month and entered a rehab facility in Dallas.
Brent retired last year and will have to apply for reinstatement. He could face a suspension under the league’s personal conduct policy.
