The family of a Dallas Cowboys practice squad player killed in a drunken-driving crash is suing the nightclub that served him and the car's driver. Jerry Brown's family filed suit last week in a Dallas County court against Beamers Private Club of Dallas. The suit alleges the club served ''large sums of alcohol'' to Josh Brent, the former Cowboys player driving in December when his car crashed. Police in the Dallas suburb of Irving say Brent was driving with a blood-alcohol level at twice the legal limit. The lawsuit alleges Beamers Private is liable under Texas' ''dram shop'' law and seeks wrongful death and other damages. The club has previously said it ''promotes responsible drinking.'' Brent faces a January trial on intoxication manslaughter and manslaughter charges.

Kiffin Report: The Remarkable Waiver Wire Defensive Line

If the 2013 Dallas Cowboys go anywhere this season - such as hosting a playoff game in Arlington because they won the NFC East - I believe we will spend a lot of time praising the fantastic job of the defensive line who is in their first year in the 4-3 scheme under Monte Kiffin and Rod Marinelli. Those of us on the outside talked the entire off-season about the change with strategy...

No Nick Hayden or Miles Austin today. — Calvin Watkins (@calvinwatkins) November...

Dez Bryant may not have actually paid $54,896 tab as a rookie

When word surfaced that Miami Dolphins offensive lineman Jonathan Martin was allegedly forced to pay $15,000 for a team trip to Las Vegas, one person who likely felt no sympathy for the former Stanford star is Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant.
