Dallas Cowboys' DeMarco Murray And Dez Bryant Missed Drug Test, According To Report

Bryant has been cleared, according to report, but Murray could risk suspension.

ESPN Dallas is reporting that the Dallas Cowboys' receiver Dez Bryant and running back DeMarco Murray missed a mandatory drug test in July because neither could produce an accepted form of identification. 

Both players told ESPN Dallas they consider the missed tests to be a minor error they've notified the league to correct, and both claim to have taken and passed drug tests since July. The report also stated the NFL has cleared Bryant, but Murray could be in trouble if a drug test he took this week comes back positive, as any missed tests are considered failures according to league policy:

Murray said he has a scheduled conference call with league officials Thursday night to clear up his issue.

"I have taken the tests three times a week," Murray said. "I met with a [counselor] this past week. I have a conference call today to get me off the list. I have never failed a drug test."

Murray has 14 carries for 39 yards in four games this season behind starter Felix Jones.
