Dallas Cowboys defensive end Damontre Moore has been suspended for the first two regular-season games of the 2017 season for violating the NFL's substance-abuse policy, the league announced Friday.
The ban stems from Moore being charged with driving under the influence as well as driving with a suspended license in December.
Moore is allowed to practice in training camp and play in preseason games. The 24-year-old will be able to rejoin the club on Sept. 18, one day after the Cowboys' game against the Denver Broncos. Moore joins fellow Dallas defensive ends Randy Gregory and David Irving in being handed suspensions. Gregory has been banned for the season for multiple violations of the substance-abuse policy while Irving will miss the first four games for violating the substance-abuse policy.
Moore signed a two-year deal with the Cowboys as a free agent in March. He has totaled 77 tackles and 10 sacks in 49 career games with the New York Giants, Miami Dolphins and Seattle Seahawks.
