Garrett: Cowboys expected suspension for DE Damontre Moore

OXNARD, Calif. (AP) Dallas Cowboys coach Jason Garrett says the club expected a suspension for defensive end Damontre Moore, who was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence while with the Seattle Seahawks last season.

Moore, also cited in Seattle for driving with a suspended license last December, became the third Dallas defensive player who will start the season on the suspended list when he received a two-game ban Friday for violating the NFL's personal-conduct policy.

Garrett said Saturday that Moore has ''made great strides in our evaluations by our player engagement people'' since signing with the Cowboys in March.

Defensive ends David Irving (four games) and Randy Gregory (likely entire season) will be suspended when the season starts. Irving violated the performance-enhancing policy, and Gregory has multiple substance-abuse violations.

Two more defensive players could face suspensions after offseason arrests: cornerback Nolan Carroll (drunken-driving charge) and linebacker Damien Wilson (aggravated assault charges).
