    Josh Brent won’t play for the Cowboys in 2013 but the club doesn’t want to comment on the nose tackle publicly until the NFL rules on his status, sources said. But sources told David Moore of the Dallas Morning News that NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell is expected to rule soon on a possible suspension, and that Brent won’t play for the Cowboys in 2013. The Cowboys coaches and players have been unwavering in their support of Brent. Amid a report that the NFL soon will be suspending Cowboys nose tackle Josh Brent following his December arrest for intoxication manslaughter, a league source with knowledge of the situation has shared a fairly important fact. But at a raw, pragmatic level, the Cowboys could use the $630,000 in cap space if he was off their roster or suspended. A suspension seems likely, with the precedent set by the indefinite suspension which turned into a one-year ban for Donte Stallworth, after he struck and killed a pedestrian in 2009.
