(AP) Two Dallas Cowboys players who were with former defensive tackle Josh Brent the night of a crash that killed a teammate have taken the stand at Brent's intoxication manslaughter trial.


Safeties Barry Church and Danny McCray testified Thursday that they played video games with Brent on Dec. 7, 2012, before going to dinner and a Dallas nightclub.


Brent and practice squad player Jerry Brown were driving home from the nightclub early Dec. 8 when Brent wrecked his Mercedes, leaving Brown dead. Brown, a linebacker, was also a teammate of Brent's at the University of Illinois.


Prosecutors say Brent had a blood-alcohol level more than twice the legal limit. Brent's attorney denies his client was drunk.


Brent faces 20 years in prison if convicted.
