Brent on practice field for 1st time since crash

IRVING, Texas (AP) Dallas defensive tackle Josh Brent has returned to the practice field for the first time since his drunken-driving crash that killed teammate Jerry Brown in 2012.

Brent did light work on the side Wednesday, the first day he was eligible to practice because of NFL restrictions related to his 10-game suspension over an intoxication manslaughter conviction in January.

The first possible game for Brent is Nov. 23 at the New York Giants, but coach Jason Garrett hasn't said when Brent might be ready to play.

Brent's last game was Dec. 2, 2012, against Philadelphia, six days before the fatal crash in the Dallas suburb of Irving. He was sentenced to 180 days in jail after a 10-year prison term was suspended.
