If nose tackle Josh Brent watches the Dallas Cowboys play again in person this season, it won’t be from the team’s sideline. Not after the firestorm that was ignited by his presence on the sideline during Sunday’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Although the club hasn’t announced it has officially banned Brent from the sideline, a person with knowledge of the situation told USA TODAY Sports that Brent — facing intoxication manslaughter charges stemming from the one-car accident Dec. 8 that resulted in the death of practice squad linebacker Jerry Brown — won’t be back on the bench.

Brent left the sideline during the third quarter Sunday after being informed by a club official of the controversy generated when images of his presence were shown to millions of viewers.

The Cowboys seemingly are in damage-control mode, with the team maintaining management was unaware Brent would show up at the game.

  • I don’t understand why some people were so upset with Brent’s presence on the sidelines. It was his fellow teammates that brought him to the game, they showing him support while he is dealing with the consequences of his actions.
