According to a law enforcement source familiar with the investigation, Josh Brent had a blood alcohol level of more than twice the legal limit during Saturday's tragic car crash that killed Jerry Brown Jr, The Dallas Morning News reported Thursday.

The Dallas Cowboys nose tackle is out on $500,000 bail after being charged with intoxication manslaughter for the single-car, alcohol-related crash that took the life of his friend and teammate.

Brent isn't likely to see the field again this season.

The Cowboys on Wednesday placed the third-year nose tackle on the reserve/non-football injury list and reports surfaced that Brent's mental state has the team concerned. The Cowboys aren't giving up on Brent in the middle of a challenging situation, but his deactivition will allow the legal process to play out. Football is on hold.
