IRVING (AP) -- Cowboys coach Jason Garrett says a series of guidelines have been put in place for Dez Bryant to hold the young receiver accountable.

While Garrett didn't go into specifics Monday, he said the team wants to support Bryant and his family. He says there is a balance in holding players accountable while also wanting to support and help them.

According to numerous reports, Bryant will attend weekly counseling sessions, have a full-time security team and not allowed to consume alcohol or attend strip clubs.

Bryant was arrested in July for allegedly assaulting his mother, who has since said she doesn't want authorities to pursue charges against him. The Dallas County district attorney's office has yet to make a decision about charges.
