Dallas Cowboys defensive tackle Josh Brent has been suspended for 10 games.
Brent, who committed a intoxication manslaughter of former teammate Jerry Brown, is required to stay away from the Cowboys' facility for the first six games.
Brent is required to remain out of trouble. Any prohibited alcohol-related conduct will result in a suspension and potential banishment from the NFL.
"If Brent fully complies with these terms, and following an additional report and recommendation from the league's substance abuse program advisors, he will considered for full reinstatement to return to play following Week 10," the NFL said in a statement. "Brent may appeal this decision within five days."
Brent met with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell in August to seek reinstatement.
Brent retired in 2013. The Cowboys activated him from the reserve-retired list.
