Irving Faces PED Suspension – Dallas Cowboys defensive end David Irving is facing a four-game suspension for violating the NFL’s policy against performance-enhancing drugs, a source has confirmed. An appeal on Irving’s behalf was filed last week. A source said the issue stems from an over-the-counter substance Irving used in an attempt to endorse the product. If the suspension is upheld, he would be the Cowboys’ second defensive lineman penalized by the league this year. Randy Gregory will miss the entire regular season for multiple violations of the NFL’s substance abuse policy.
