Dallas Cowboys lineman Josh Brent's blood alcohol level was more than twice the legal limit at the time of a crash that killed teammate Jerry Brown, according to a Dallas Morning News report.

Brent, who has been charged with intoxication manslaughter, had a limit at 0.18, the paper said, citing an unidentified law enforcement source.

The 24-year-old Brent was released on a $500,000 bond. Irving police spokesman John Argumaniz told the paper that officers conducted a field-sobriety test on Brent following the accident.

Brent has been placed on the reserve/non-football illness list, and Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett said Monday that the team would "support Josh 100 percent in every way that we can."

According to police, Brent was speeding early Saturday morning when his vehicle flipped after hitting a curb. Brown was pronounced dead later at a Dallas hospital of blunt force trauma to his head and neck, the Dallas County medical examiner told the paper.
