DALLAS (AP)- A judge has ordered Dallas Cowboys nose tackle Josh Brent to wear an electronic monitor while free on an intoxication manslaughter charge in a car crash that killed teammate and St. Louis native Jerry Brown.

A judge modified conditions for his continued release and lowered bond from $500,000 to $100,000 during Brent’s Tuesday court appearance.

Prosecutors asked that Brent wear an electronic ankle bracelet while free pending trial on in the Dec. 8 one-car accident that killed Brown. The judge agreed.

Brent, who was driving the vehicle, declined comment following the court hearing.

Brent has been placed on the NFL reserve/non-football illness list and won’t play again this season. He was on the sideline Sunday at Cowboys Stadium as Dallas beat Pittsburgh 27-24 in overtime.
