Josh Brent At Cowboys Facility; Garrett Said Team Still Loves Him
DALLAS (CBS SPORTS) – With Dallas nose tackle Josh Brent, who was charged with intoxicated manslaughter for his involvement in a car crash that killed teammate Jerry Brown on Saturday, out on bond, he visited the Cowboys facility Monday, according to the Fort Worth Star Telegram.
He got treatment and met with coach Jason Garrett, who made sure Brent knew, “We all love him and we’re going to be here for him.” Garrett also said Brent was “very distraught” following the death of his Cowboys teammate (and former teammate and good friend at the University of Illinois).
For now, Brent will remain on the Cowboys active roster.
“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.”
