Cowboys' Josh Brent barred from sidelines for remainder of season

Nose tackle Josh Brent will not be permitted to be on the Dallas Cowboys' sideline the remainder of the season, team and league sources said Tuesday.

The Cowboys and officials in the NFL's offices were unaware that Brent, who is on the reserve/non-football injury list as a result of being charged with intoxication manslaughter two weeks ago in the crash that killed teammate Jerry Brown, would be on the sideline. Both the team and the league are in complete agreement that it was not appropriate, sources said.

Several of Brent's teammates urged him to attend Sunday's game against the Steelers and coach Jason Garrett, who spoke to Brent the day before the game, didn't even know about it until pregame warm-ups.

The game had already begun when Garrett realized Brent was on the sideline, and owner Jerry Jones didn't know until he saw Brent on television.

Garrett said Monday that Cowboys players were following the wishes of Brown's mother, Stacey Jackson.

According to sources, Brent went to the game somewhat reluctantly. He was driven by a teammate on injured reserve who told Brent that all of his teammates wanted him to be there. Once Brent became aware that his presence was sparking a national debate, he left Cowboys Stadium in the third quarter.

1. Good...

He has no sense...and while Brown's mother is to be commended for being so forgiving, her wishes should not be the only consideration.
