IRVING, Texas (AP) — Josh Brent has been placed on the reserve/non-football illness list by the Dallas Cowboys, a move that ends his season, but allows the defensive tackle to remain with the team.

The move Wednesday came a day after a memorial service for practice squad player Jerry Brown, Brent's close friend who was killed in a car accident when Brent was driving. Brent is facing an intoxicated manslaughter charge related to the accident Saturday morning, and is free on bond.

Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones says the team wants to be able to stay in contact with Brent, and for the player to stay in contact with teammates. Jones says those things are important.

Dallas signed defensive tackle Brian Schaefering, who was released by Cleveland before this season.
