Cowboys wide receiver Shaquelle Evans was suspended for the first four games of the 2017 season, per a league announcement. Evans violated the NFL’s Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse.
You may remember Evans as a notable Jets draft bust during John Idzik‘s tenure as GM. The 2014 fourth-round pick was placed on injured reserve in August of his rookie season, ending his first campaign before it could begin. After he healed from the shoulder injury, he was unable to make the Jets’ 53-man roster and he was cut loose in September 2015.
Evans came to the Cowboys on a January practice squad deal and was already viewed as a longshot to make the roster. This could effectively shut the door on Evans’ 53-man chances.
