Cowboys advise Brent to stay away from workouts

The SportsXchange

Although nose tackle Josh Brent has not been banned from attending voluntary workouts with the Dallas Cowboys, executive vice president Stephen Jones advised Brent that it would be best if he stayed away from the Cowboys' facility until his legal situation is cleared up.

Brent was arrested for intoxication manslaughter in the death of his friend and teammate Jerry Brown Jr. on Dec. 8.

Brent is currently on the reserve/non-football illness list. He has a Sept. 23 trial date on the charge, and he faces up to 20 years in prison if convicted.

"The league hasn't had any sanctions on him," Jones said Tuesday on KRLD-FM in Dallas, according to "The more important thing for Josh right now is to focus on the issues at hand for himself, and obviously, he's got some legal issues he's going to be working through, not to mention all the personal issues that are involved with what he was involved with. That's what he's focused on right now."
