Ex-Dallas Cowboys player Josh Brent has been released from jail.

Brent was serving a 180 day sentence for the drunk driving crash that killed his friend and teammate Jerry Brown in 2012.  Last week, he asked a Dallas County judge to let him serve the rest of his sentence at an in-patient treatment facility.

Brent’s attorney confirmed he was released just after noon Sunday, but did not reveal which facility he is going to.

Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones says he would not rule out the possibility that Brent could return to the team.
