The Cowboys saw another defensive lineman get injured on Saturday night, a development that probably won’t do anything to shake them of their plan to bring defensive tackle Josh Brent back to the roster if he’s allowed to play by the league.
Brent retired before last season and spent five months in jail after being convicted of intoxication manslaughter for being behind the wheel for the car accident that killed Brent’s former teammate Jerry Brown. Brent met with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, a meeting that reportedly went well, and owner Jerry Jones said he expects to hear soon about the league’s ruling about Brent’s future.
“We expect to hear something imminently,” Jones said, via ESPNDallas.com.
It’s impossible to know what Brent might be able to do after such a long stretch away from the game, but the Cowboys aren’t anywhere close to strong enough up front for that to stop them from finding out.
