Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones arrives Tuesday at a memorial service for Jerry Brown at Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship in Dallas. Brown died Saturday in a one-car accident that landed teammate Josh Brent in jail after police said he was driving drunk.

COWBOYS Memorial held DALLAS — Jason Garrett gave the Dallas Cowboys a day off after his players somehow pulled off a victory in Cincinnati while reeling from a one-car accident that killed one teammate and landed another in jail. Many players showed up at team headquarters anyway and there was Josh Brent, the defensive tackle who missed the trip after police say he was driving drunk and caused the wreck that killed practice squad linebacker Jerry Brown, his close friend and roommate. And Brent was back with his teammates again Tuesday for a private memorial honoring Brown.
