ARLINGTON, Texas (AP)

The Dallas Cowboys will wear a helmet decal Sunday against Pittsburgh to honor practice squad linebacker Jerry Brown a week after he died in a one-car accident that led to manslaughter charges against teammate Josh Brent for allegedly driving drunk.

The decal will feature Brown's No. 53.

Last week, the Cowboys honored Brown by draping his jersey over the bench in Cincinnati, where they beat the Bengals 20-19 on a field goal on the final play a day after Brown died.

The Cowboys held a private memorial for Brown on Tuesday, and his funeral was Saturday in St. Louis.

Police in the Dallas suburb of Irving say Brent was speeding when his car hit a curb and flipped Dec. 8. Brown was pronounced dead at a hospital.
