SAN DIEGO -- Josh Brent's meeting with commissioner Roger Goodell on Thursday afternoon went well, a source said.

Brent met with the commissioner to determine whether he would be suspended after being convicted of intoxication manslaughter. He was sentenced to six months in jail and 10 years probation.

He spent the last 45 days of his jail sentence at a drug and alcohol treatment center.

The NFL has not announced whether Brent will be suspended. The source said Brent will return to Dallas until the league rules on his situation.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said the team will have a spot on its roster for the 26-year-old defensive lineman if he's not suspended.
