The Dallas Cowboys will be without David Irving for the first four games of the season due to a performance-enhancing drugs violation, and the defensive lineman appears to have further worsened his standing with his team thanks to an unexplained absence.
Irving was a no-show for the start of the Cowboys’ training camp, sources told ESPN’s Todd Archer, missing the conditioning run and physicals that happen the day before players take the field.
Players who miss the reporting date are subject to a $40,000 fine, according to the NFL’s collective bargaining agreement.
The Cowboys will fly to California on Saturday, and it remains to be seen whether Irving will join them.
