DALLAS (AP) - Six current or former Dallas Cowboys players are on prosecutors' witness list for the intoxication manslaughter trial of former lineman Josh Brent.

Safeties Danny McCray and Barry Church and cornerback Orlando Scandrick are listed as potential witnesses. Also on the list filed Thursday are retired safety Gerald Sensabaugh; former cornerback Michael Jenkins, now with the Raiders; and fullback Lawrence Vickers, who was released last week.

Brent is charged in a December car crash that killed practice squad player Jerry Brown. Authorities say Brent's blood-alcohol level was twice the legal limit.

His trial is slated to begin Sept. 23, the day after the Cowboys play the St. Louis Rams.

A Cowboys spokesman did not immediately return a message seeking comment.
