IRVING (CBSDFW.COM) - The thin Dallas Cowboys secondary is about to take another hit with the news that safety Jakar Hamilton is being suspended four games for a substance-abuse policy violation. The punishment, as first reported by ESPN, suggests this is not the first violation for the young backup safety and special-teamer.

Hamilton is the second member of the Dallas secondary to be suspended this month, as cornerback Orlando Scandrick was banned for four games for a PED violation.

Scandrick’s spot once his suspension is served is secure. Hamilton’s is not. Depending on the nature of his violation and the club’s reaction to it, the Cowboys could opt to release him, with Jeff Heath and Ryan Smith serving as the backups to starting safeties Barry Church and J.J. Wilcox.

An NFL spokesperson released the following statement.

Jakar Hamilton of the Dallas Cowboys has been suspended without pay for the first four games of the 2014 regular season for violating the NFL Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse.

Hamilton will be eligible to return to the Cowboys’ active roster on Monday, September 29 following the team’s September 28 game against the New Orleans Saints.

Hamilton is eligible to participate in the team’s final preseason game.
