Cowboys CB Morris Claiborne is going to need a lot of help in the secondary as the team loses yet another cornerback.
The Dallas Cowboys have suspended CB Orlando Scandrick for four games after he tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs and lost an appeal on the suspension.
Scandrick, a seventh year player, became a starter in 2013 when starting CB Morris Claiborne struggled. He started 15 games and recorded 2.0 sacks, 2 INTs and a forced fumble, along with over 50 tackles.
Claiborne is currently recovering from tendinitis in his knee and missed the preseason opener against San Diego. The Cowboys’ other starter at CB, Brandon Carr, has missed the first two weeks of camp to spend time with his mother as she fights her breast cancer. He is expected to be ready for the regular season.
Scandrick will miss the home opener against the 49ers, then two road games against the Titans and Rams, and finally a home game against the Saints. He will be eligible to return October 5th against Houston.
