DALLAS (AP) β€” Former Dallas Cowboys tackle Josh Brent will spend at least 45 days in rehab for substance abuse following his release from jail in the drunken-driving crash that killed a teammate.

State District Judge Robert Burns agreed on Friday to modify Brent’s jail sentence to allow him to enter a residential facility for substance abuse treatment. Burns’ order was made public Monday. Brent was released from jail Sunday. Burns ordered Brent to immediately report to rehab and remain there for 45 days.

Brent was convicted in January of intoxication manslaughter in the December 2012 death of Jerry Brown, a Cowboys practice squad linebacker and college teammate. He was given 10 years’ probation, including 180 days in jail.

Brent has retired from the NFL but could seek to play again.
