Defensive end Robert Quinn will definitely miss the first two regular-season games now.
The NFL has announced the veteran pass-rusher has been suspended for two games for a violation of the league’s policy on performance-enhancing substances.
Quinn had recently returned to Dallas to undergo surgery on a fractured left hand that he sustained in practice earlier this week.
While there were questions on Quinn’s availability for Week 1 before this news because of the injury, it’s likely Quinn should be fully healed when he comes back.
He is allowed to practice in training camp and even play in the preseason games, although it’s unlikely that is injury would allow him to participate.
Quinn is eligible to return on Sept. 16, following the Cowboys’ Week 2 game at Washington.
