Cow­boys’Brent in­dicted on in­tox­i­ca­tion manslaugh­ter charge; other NFL notes,

Austin American-Statesman - - SPORTS -

A grand jury in Texas has for­mally in­dicted Dal­las Cow­boys nose tackle Josh Brent on one count of in­tox­i­ca­tion manslaugh­ter.

Brent is charged in con­nec­tion with a Dec. 8 crash in the Dal­las sub­urb of Irv­ing that killed his friend and Cow­boys prac­tice squad mem­ber Jerry Brown. He is out of jail on $100,000 bond.

Dal­las County District At­tor­ney’s Of­fice spokes­woman Deb­bie Den­mon says the in­dict­ment was re­turned Wed­nes­day.

Po­lice say Brent was speed­ing when his ve­hi­cle struck a curb and flipped. In­tox­i­ca­tion manslaugh­ter car­ries a max­i­mum sen­tence of 20 years in prison.

Ea­gles: De­fen­sive tackle An­to­nio Dixon signed a two-year deal to re­turn to the Ea­gles. He was cut in train­ing camp af­ter three sea­son in Philadel­phia and played briefly in Indianapolis ear­lier this sea­son.

49ers: Tight end Ver­non Davis did not par­tic­i­pate in prac­tice while he re­cov­ers from a con­cus­sion suf­fered in Sun­day’s loss at Seat­tle.

Ravens: Line­backer Ray Lewis was added to the 53-man ros­ter, but coach John Har­baugh says the 17-year veteran will not play Sun­day against the Ben­gals. Lewis, 37, was placed on the in­jured re­serve-des­ig­nated to re­turn list af­ter tear­ing his right tri­ceps on Oct. 14.

Seahawks: Seat­tle is av­er­ag­ing 50 points per game in the past three weeks. The 150 points are the most since the Los An­ge­les Rams of 1950 in a three-game span.

Steel­ers: Quar­ter­back Ben Roeth­lis­berger has thrown only eight in­ter­cep­tions this sea­son, but many came at cru­cial times. Six came in de­feats, four in the fourth quar­ter or over­time. His first in­ter­cep­tion in the must-win game against the Ben­gals on Sun­day was re­turned for Cincin­nati’s only touch­down. “Fourth-quar­ter drives or last-minute throws, I’m just not mak­ing it hap­pen,” he said.
