The Dallas Cowboys probably knew this was coming, but the National Football League made defensive end David Irving's suspension official Wednesday afternoon.

Dallas Cowboys defensive end David Irving has officially been suspended for the first four games of the season for violating the National Football League policy on performance enhancing substances. The third-year pass rusher informed the Cowboys in May that he might have failed a drug test for "supplements".

Irving is eligible to return on Monday, October 2 following the Cowboys week four matchup against the Los Angeles Rams.

Azam said it is a huge message for which the entire country should be ashamed and think how one will face the world. Khan, is also no stranger to controversies as he has made many statements which have led to angry reactions.

Irving played 45.9 percent of the defensive snaps last season, finishing with four sacks, five tackles for loss, 26 quarterback pressures, five passes defended and four forced fumbles - three of which came while only playing 19 snaps in the regular-season win over Green Bay. His absence will hurt that cause during the first quarter of the 2017 campaign. The defensive end had four sacks a year ago and was credited with a team high 26 quarterback pressures in 15 games.

The Cowboys coaching staff and front office surely knew Irving's suspension was coming, as reports began surfacing last month of his impending suspension. Collins finished second with 5 sacks and Crawford posted 4.5 sacks previous year.
