No decisions made on Josh Brent's status
|Chris Mortensen joins Galloway & Company and confirms that Jason Garrett signed on with Jerry Jones' decision to remove his role as playcaller. |
NFL spokesperson Greg Aiello said Thursday that the league is aware of Brent's situation but won't comment until the case moves forward. Brent is awaiting a court date as a result of being charged with intoxication manslaughter in the death of practice squad player and close friend Jerry Brown.
The Cowboys placed Brent on the reserve/non-football illness list after his December arrest. The league and the Cowboys are holding off on discipline until his court case nears completion or gets resolved.
"My thinking has been dictated by the legal process," Jones said this week from Mobile, Ala. "So until we know more about timing, status, how that’s resolved there, then I won’t even think about where he is as far as his career is concerned. We’ll see. We have to, and that involves ultimately league matters as well, and more importantly, where he is in the justice system."
