DALLAS, Texas (105.3 THE FAN) – Former Dallas Cowboys defensive tackle Josh Brent has been conditionally reinstated with the team according to several reports.
Reports say with the latest move by the NFL, Brent could return to play with the team by Week 11.

The NFL on Tuesday outlined a series of conditions Brent must meet to be eligible to play when the Cowboys return from their bye week in November.
Brent can’t be involved in team activities for the first six weeks and must avoid any “adverse involvement with law enforcement.” Along with other team restrictions, the conditions also include that he must comply with all requirements set by the courts regarding his probation, testing, and monitoring.
Brent must fully comply with any evaluation, treatment or counseling required by medical or other professionals assigned to him.
And any prohibited alcohol-related conduct will likely result in an immediate suspension and potential banishment from the NFL.
Brent retired last year and was sentenced to 180 days in jail after a trial earlier this year. A 10-year prison sentence was suspended.
Brent was convicted in January in a car crash that killed teammate and friend Jerry Brown Jr. in December 2012. His blood-alcohol level on the night of the crash was more than twice the legal limit.
“If I ever get a chance to right that wrong,” Josh Brent told The Fan’s Jesse Holley, “I will do so.”
