OXNARD, CA - Dallas Cowboys cornerback Orlando Scandrick is getting a four-game suspension for violating the league's substance abuse policy.

Team owner Jerry Jones told reporters at a media party in Malibu, California, on Monday night that Scandrick tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs and lost an appeal on the ban.

Scandrick will be eligible to return Oct. 5 against Houston. He will miss the opener against San Francisco, and his final game on the sidelines will be against Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints, who set an NFL record with 40 first downs against Dallas last year.

The Cowboys are practicing with Oakland on Tuesday and Wednesday at training camp in Oxnard. They break camp Friday.

Scandrick is going into his seventh season.
