Irving (suspension) won't report to the start of training camp and has been excused by the Cowboys, Kate Hairopoulos of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Irving sat out most of the offseason program so he could tend to a family matter, and it's unclear if this is related. Jihad Ward and Brian Price will fill in at defensive tackle while Irving sits out the first four games of the regular season for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy. On the bright side, however, a source confirmed to Hairopoulos on Tuesday that Irving will not face any league discipline from a domestic violence allegation, which his ex-girlfriend subsequently recanted. He'll be a tough man to replace on the Dallas line while he's sidelined, with seven sacks in just eight games during the 2017 campaign.
