Larry Brown Sports:
The Dallas Cowboys did what they could to honor teammate Jerry Brown on Sunday, the day after he died in a car crash. The team laid a No. 53 jersey on its bench for the entire game against the Cincinnati Bengals, and various players held it up after pulling off a last-second 20-19 win.
Defensive tackle Jason Hatcher grabbed the jersey and held it up after the game, and other defensive players like DeMarcus Ware could be seen with the jersey.
The win and recognition of Brown was an excellent tribute to the practice-squad player, who was with the team less than two months before his awful death. The team also reportedly gave Brown’s mother, Stacey Jackson, the game ball after the win.
