Cowboys CB Scandrick suspended 4 games for drug violation

Oxnard, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - The Dallas Cowboys' defense suffered another blow late Monday night.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones told reporters that starting cornerback Orlando Scandrick has been suspended for the first four games of the 2014 NFL season.

Jones said the suspension is for a violation of the performance-enhancing drugs policy.

According to Jay Glazer of FOXSports.com, "Just talked to Orlando Scandrick about his 4 game suspension. Says he took something in Mexico while on vacation and it [tested] positive on banned list for performance enhancer."

Scandrick started 15 of 16 games for the Cowboys last season. He had 64 tackles, two interceptions and a forced fumble.

The Cowboys' defense is already missing star linebacker Sean Lee (torn ACL) and defensive end Demarcus Lawrence (foot), the team's second-round draft pick.

Scandrick will be eligible to return for the team's Week 5 matchup against the Texans.
