DALLAS - 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 a teammate.

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 friend and Cowboys practice squad member Jerry 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.
