According to ESPN
, The NFL has suspended Dallas Cowboys cornerback Orlando Scandrick for the first four games of the season.
Scandrick tested positive for MDMA, which is also known as Ecstasy or Molly, league sources told ESPN's Ed Werder. He became the 21st player of 104 suspended for performance-enhancing drugs to test positive for MDMA.
Sources told Werder that the violation occurred while Scandrick was vacationing in Mexico with an ex-girlfriend, whom he has claimed persuaded him to add a substance he didn't realize was on the banned list into a cocktail they were drinking.
According to a source with knowledge of the situation, Scandrick failed a drug test in April and appealed its findings. The league rendered its decision Monday. He will lose approximately $1 million through four missed game checks and a signing bonus repayment.
Scandrick can participate in all preseason practices and games and will be eligible to return to the active roster on Sept. 29th.
