Linebacker Rolando McClain was handed down a 10-game suspension on Thursday for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy. His suspension will begin at the start of the regular season.
For a second straight year, McClain will start the season under suspension. McClain was suspended last year for four games after violating the same policy.
The Cowboys re-signed McClain in March with a one-year contract worth up to $5 million.
Last season, McClain played in 11 games. The linebacker recorded 97 tackles, two sacks, nine tackles for loss, two interceptions, five pass deflections and forced one fumble.
