Cowboys' Scandrick suspended four games

Dallas Cowboys

A Dallas Cowboys defensive player will be suspended for the first four games of the season for violating the NFL'S performance-enhancing drugs policy. The league announced the suspension of cornerback Orlando Scandrick for the first four games of the regular season.

Scandrick acknowledges that he tested positive for amphetamines, the result of recreational drug use in april during a vacation in Mexico. While he declined to specify what drug he ingested, league sources say it was MDMA, also known as ecstacy or molly.

Scandrick, who can participate in all of the Cowboys' preseason practices and games, addressed the team in a Monday morning meeting. He became the 21st player of 104 suspended for performance-enhancing drugs to test positive for MDMA.

Scandrick, a seven-year veteran coming off the best season of his career, tested positive in April and was informed Monday that the appeals process had been exhausted, making his suspension official.

With scandrick suspended, young cornerbacks Sterling Moore, Terrance Mitchell and B.W. Webb will compete for the nickel back role.

Dallas lost in the first preseason game at San Diego 27-7 to the Chargers, and will host Baltimore 5:00pm MT Saturday.

"Orlando was very apologetic about it. He realizes that it was a mistake and was very upfront about it, and it's behind him. What we're going to do now is we're going to make the best out of this situation, both in regards to him and in regards to our football team. It's important for him not to lose his spirit because he brings a lot to our team, and he will over the next few weeks of practice and then certainly when he comes back during the season," said head coach Jason Garrett.

Scandrick added, "I made a bad decision, I'm responsible for what goes in my body. I know I'm responsible for what goes in my body. It's a very humbling experience. I'm very sorry. I apologize to the Jones family. I'm very sorry to my teammates. I'm very sorry to the fans of Cowboys nation and I'm very sorry to my family."

"I ingested something in my body and while vacationing and kind of partying and doing things on a recreational use. In no way, form, or shape was this trying to gain a competitive edge. I simply made a mistake, it was just a dumb mistake."
