(Reuters) – Dallas Cowboys cornerback Orlando Scandrick has been suspended for four games after testing positive for performance enhancing drugs, the NFL reported on Monday.

Scandrick will be eligible to return to action on Oct. 5 against the Houston Texans.

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

His absence will further weaken a Dallas defense already missing key players due to injury.
