Another suspension for a Cowboys defender

The Cowboys’ defense might not deliver many hits this season, but they keep absorbing them.

Via Todd Archer of ESPNDallas.com, the Cowboys have lost safety Jakar Hamilton for the first four games of the season for violating the league’s substance abuse policy.

They were already going to be without cornerback Orlando Scandrick for the first four for violating the league’s PED policy.

Hamilton was on the roster bubble, so it will be interesting to see if they hang onto him, or use him as an example. He played in three games last year after being called up from the practice squad, after arriving as an undrafted rookie.

A hamstring injury was expected to keep him out of tonight’s game anyway.
