ARLINGTON, TX (KLTV) -

Down the stretch last year, David Irving was the Cowboys most reliable pass rusher, but the team will be without him to begin the 2017 season.

After losing his appeal, Irving has officially been suspended the first four games for violating the NFL's policy against performance-enhancing drugs. The defensive end had four sacks last year and was credited with a team high 26 quarterback pressures in 15 games.

Irving also had four forced fumbles and five pass deflections. First round pick Taco Charlton will now have a chance to make more of an immediate impact.

    Moody Magic, a term coined by the Abilene Christian faithful to describe a supposed mystical aura around Moody Coliseum that gives the Wildcats a winning edge, is something the Stephen F. Austin men's basketball team fell victim to a season ago. Wednesday night, the 'Jacks cast a spell of their own - one of the defensive variety - to make sure their intrastate rivals wouldn't obtain a second-straight win in the series.
