DALLAS (105.3 The Fan) - Cowboys defensive lineman David Irving will not face any discipline from the NFL after he was accused of domestic violence by the mother of his daughter, according to 105.3 The Fan's Mike Fisher.

ESPN's Todd Archer was the first to report the news. 

The NFL likely took into account the fact that the woman recanted the allegations after blasting them out on David Irving's Twitter account in early May.

105.3 The Fan's Mike Fisher reports that the two are currently in a custody dispute in California. 

As for the case in Texas, Fish says the Frisco Police decided to not pursue charges against Irving after his former girlfriend admitted the allegations she made weren't true. 

It's a break for the pass rusher as he is already suspended for the first four games of the season for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy. 

This is the second straight season in which Irving was suspended for the first four games. Irving was suspended last season for violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing drugs. 

Irving will be eligible to return to the Cowboys active roster on Monday, October 1 against the Houston Texans. He will be allowed to participate in all offseason and preseason practices and games.
