After suffering a hand injury during Thursday’s practice, Cowboys defensive end Robert Quinn was marked as questionable for week 1. Now, the pass rusher will sit out the first two weeks of the season, but not due to injury.
Quinn will serve a two week suspension after violating the NFL’s performance-enhancing substance policy. The Cowboys organization announced the suspension on Thursday. The suspension is specifically being served due to the use of a masking agent.
Robert Quinn’s, Sean Kiernan, took to twitter with some harsh words after the suspension was announced.

Kiernan statement may be valid, but the suspension is unlikely to be overturned as it has already been finalized.
Quinn’s return to the field and Cowboys debut will be on September 15, week 3. Dallas will be taking on the Miami Dolphins, who happen to be Quinn’s former team. The Dolphins traded Quinn to the Cowboys for a sixth-round pick earlier in the offseason.
