Draft Scout *Demarcus Lawrence News
08/12/16 - DE DeMarcus Lawrence is expected to sit out the preseason opener against the Los Angeles Rams.
06/16/16 - DE DeMarcus Lawrence has been suspended for the first four games for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy. Lawrence has appealed the suspension and is still awaiting the NFL's ruling. The Cowboys are waiting patiently as well but they are not going to push their luck with the league.
"They just kind of tell you when they tell you," executive vice president Stephen Jones said of the league. "We obviously are aware of it. I mean, they've given us a warning because we know he's up for suspension, but how that comes out on appeal and all that ... you have to plan for the worst and if it's better than that, great."
04/20/16 - DE DeMarcus Lawrence faces a four-game suspension for violating the league's substance-abuse policy, multiple media outlets reported Wednesday.
The NFL has not yet notified the Cowboys regarding the looming suspension, so Lawrence's representatives apparently are challenging the ruling. However, sources told the Dallas Morning News that the four-game suspension to begin the 2016 season will be enforced.
Lawrence had been fined for an earlier substance-abuse violation, and a four-game suspension is the next step for a subsequent violation.
Lawrence, 24, played in 16 regular-season games last season, including 13 starts, and he had eight sacks and was involved in 55 tackles.
The impending suspension of Lawrence represents more bad news for the Dallas defensive line. Earlier this offseason, defensive end Randy Gregory was hit with a four-game suspension for violation of the league's substance-abuse policy. In addition, the Cowboys have not shown interest in re-signing defensive end Greg Hardy.
10/28/15 - DE DeMarcus Lawrence (back strain) missed practice Wednesday. He is questionable for the Seahawks game.
12/10/14 - DE DeMarcus Lawrence practiced full on Wednesday and should play against the Eagles after missing the Bears game with a rib injury. Lawrence, a rookie second-round pick, is still looking for his first sack.
