BREAKING: Cowboys LB Luke Gifford Suspended 2 Games for PED Violation

    , a backup and player for the , has been suspended two games for violating the NFL's performance-enhancing substance policy. He will miss the next two Thursday games against the Washington Football Team and the .

    Gifford has been active for six of Dallas' 10 games so far in 2020. He's only played one defensive snap this year but has been one of the more heavily-used players on special teams, ranking 7th in total snaps there despite the four missed games.


    Gifford was an last year and became a fan favorite quickly with big plays in the team's first 2019 game. An cut his August short, though, and limited Luke's role after he returned in the middle of the regular season.

    Possibly due to changes and scheme adjustments this year, Gifford has not been given the opportunities in 2020 that one would've expected after last season's hype.

    Nevertheless, Gifford's absence will force the Cowboys to adapt their LB depth and special teams units as they prepare for the showdown with the Football Team.

    Is there any way possible Dak can be with the Team on the sideline cheering, coaching and motivating his fellow Teammates/Brothers on Thursday and the remainder of the season. Although they miss him in game time action, I think his presence would be felt tremendously and would motivate the whole team including the Fans!! ❤️
