Dallas Cowboys cornerback Orlando Scandrick has been suspended for four games after failing a drugs test.

The 27-year-old will miss the start of the Cowboys' NFL season, with the suspension covering games against San Francisco 49ers, Tennessee Titans, St Louis Rams and New Orleans Saints.

Sandrick will be available to return to the Cowboys' line-up for the October 5 game against the Houston Texans.

Reports in the United States say that Scandrick, who started 15 of 16 games for the Cowboys last season, has tested positive for a performance-enhancing substance although no specific details have been revealed.

Scandrick is reported to have appealed against the decision, only for the NFl to turn down his appeal.

Morris Claiborne, a first-round pick in the 2012 draft, has been tipped to take Scandrick's place in the Cowboys team.
