Cowboys' Randy Gregory: Reinstatement decision not imminent
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gregory (suspension) isn't expected to be reinstated by commissioner Roger Goodell prior to the NFL draft next week, Ed Werder of ESPN reports.

The 27-year-old has only appeared in 28 career games since being selected in the second round of the 2015 draft due to multiple violations of the league's old substance abuse policy, missing the entire 2017 and 2019 seasons. With a new CBA in place, however, Gregory is expected to return to the Cowboys' lineup once commissioner Roger Goodell officially reinstates him. The 27-year-old could bolster a pass rush that has a lot of question marks behind DeMarcus Lawrence -- he did record six of his seven career sacks in 2018 -- but even with Gregory and free-agent signee Aldon Smith in the fold, the club is likely to expend some draft capital at edge rusher as well.

Cowboys' Randy Gregory: Eyeing reinstatement
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gregory (suspension) will petition for NFL reinstatement soon, David Moore of The Dallas Morning News reports.

The new collective bargaining agreement has a more lenient substance abuse policy, though it doesn't apply to players like Gregory who already are serving indefinite suspensions. The 27-year-old has been suspended four times during his pro career, thus limited to 28 games since the Cowboys selected him in Round 2 of the 2015 NFL Draft. If he's reinstated, Gregory could provide the team with some badly needed help at defensive end after Robert Quinn bolted for Chicago last week.

Cowboys' Randy Gregory: Still in contact with team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gregory (suspension) met with Cowboys owner/GM Jerry Jones on Thursday, the team's website reports. "I visited with Randy - had a good visit with him. I do feel he's doing the things and it's getting recognized by the decision-makers to really improve and be a productive player in the NFL," Jones said Friday.

Now on his fourth suspension from the league, Gregory has suited up for only 28 games since being selected in the second round of the 2015 draft, recording seven sacks and 45 tackles. His current banishment is an indefinite one, but the edge rusher is expected to apply for reinstatement in the near future, and the club still hopes he'll be able to make a contribution for it next season, or possibly even late in 2019.

Cowboys' Randy Gregory: Signed through 2020
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gregory (suspension) agreed to extend his contract through 2020, Tom Pelissero of reports.

The Cowboys are sticking by their 2015 second-round pick even as he prepares to serve the fourth suspension of his pro career. Gregory finally had a chance to show his talent in 2018 and responded with six sacks, 15 quarterback hits and two sacks on 457 defensive snaps (14 games). The decision to extend his contract suggests the Cowboys are optimistic Gregory will return from his indefinite suspension at some point during the 2019 campaign.

Cowboys' Randy Gregory: Suspended indefinitely
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The NFL is suspending Gregory indefinitely for a violation of the policy on substances of abuse, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Gregory started his career in the league's substance abuse program after he reportedly tested positive for marijuana at the 2015 NFL Scouting Combine. He later picked up three separate suspensions, limiting him to two appearances between the 2016 and 2017 seasons. The 26-year-old finally stayed out of trouble and earned a regular role in 2018, piling up 25 tackles, 15 quarterback hits and six sacks in 14 games while primarily playing on passing downs. Gregory likely is looking at a difficult path to reinstatement this time around.

Cowboys' Randy Gregory: Finally makes impact
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gregory finished the regular season with 25 tackles and six sacks in 14 games.

The 26-year-old may be on his last chance in Dallas after multiple suspensions to begin his career, including one that cost him all of 2017, but Gregory appears to be serious about making the most of it. The tackles and sacks were career highs -- he had only one sack in 14 games coming into the year -- and he really came on in the second half, racking up five of his sacks in the final eight games while flashing his speed and length. The 2015 second-round pick still has one more season remaining on his rookie contract, so if he stays off the radar of the commissioner's office, Gregory could be poised for a breakout 2019.

Cowboys' Randy Gregory: Available Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gregory (personal) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Colts, Brandon George of the Dallas Morning News reports.

Gregory missed multiple practices this week as he tended to a family matter, but the personal issue won't keep him from suiting up Sunday. He's played less than 30 defensive snaps in each of the Cowboys' past two games.

Cowboys' Randy Gregory: Set to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Jason Garrett expects Gregory (personal) to be available for Sunday's game at Indianapolis, Todd Archer of reports.

Gregory is missing his second straight day of practice Friday as he tends to a family issue, but the team doesn't appear concerned about his status. The 26-year-old should be expected to take up his usual starting role at defensive end unless the team indicates otherwise.

Cowboys' Randy Gregory: Logs another sack Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gregory posted one solo tackle and one sack during Sunday's 22-19 win over the Falcons.

Gregory has now recorded a sack in two consecutive games. The rotational pass rusher appears to have found his groove in Dallas' defensive scheme, having recorded three sacks his last four games. Gregory will look to continue his streak during Thursday's game against the Redskins.

Cowboys' Randy Gregory: Posts second sack
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gregory had his second sack of the season in Sunday's 27-20 win at Philadelphia.

Gregory has been dealing with a knee issue since mid-October but was able to match his highest snap total (40) of the season against the Eagles. Taco Charlton (shoulder) was inactive Sunday, and Gregory should continue to see an increased role if Charlton remains sidelined.

Cowboys' Randy Gregory: Expected to start Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gregory (knee) is active for Sunday's game against the Eagles, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.

Gregory sat out Week 9's loss to the Titans and was limited in practice all week due to a lingering knee injury but appears to have recovered in time to suit up for Sunday's divisional matchup against the Eagles. With Taco Charlton (shoulder) inactive, Gregory is expected to draw the start Week 10.

Cowboys' Randy Gregory: Listed as questionable for Week 10
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gregory (knee) carries the questionable tag for Sunday's matchup with the Eagles, Jon Machota of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Gregory logged limited practices each day this week after missing Week 9's tilt with the Titans. The Nebraska product hasn't played since undergoing a scope on his knee in mid-October. If Gregory misses time Sunday, Dorance Armstrong could see more work.

Cowboys' Randy Gregory: Out for Monday's tilt with Tennessee
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gregory (knee) is inactive for Monday's game against Tennessee, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.

Gregory entered Monday's contest with a fair amount of uncertainty regarding his availability for Monday's tilt. Without him, Dorance Armstrong figures to be the primary reserve behind DeMarcus Lawrence and Taco Charlton on the edges.

Cowboys' Randy Gregory: Questionable for Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gregory (knee) is questionable for Monday's game against the Titans, Jon Machota of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Gregory did not participate at practice this week, but the Cowboys apparently feel well enough to give him the questionable tag regardless. The 25-year-old underwent a knee scope Oct. 23 and had the benefit of the bye last week to help recover. Dorance Armstrong would likely see increased snaps in a reserve role at defensive end should Gregory be unable to play.

Cowboys' Randy Gregory: Hopes to return after bye
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gregory (knee) hopes to return in Week 9 against the Titans following the Cowboys' bye week, Jon Machota of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Gregory underwent a scope on his knee Tuesday, which yielded optimism for a return following the bye. He is fresh off a three-tackle performance that included his first sack of the season. Dorance Armstrong would presumably see an increased workload providing depth at defensive end should Gregory ultimately suffer a setback.

Cowboys' Randy Gregory: Grabs first sack of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gregory recorded three tackles, including his first sack of the season, in Sunday's win over the Jaguars.

The Cowboys' pass rush still brought down Blake Bortles three times even with DeMarcus Lawrence being shut out, and the unit should only get better as the season progresses with David Irving now back in the lineup. With offenses focused on containing Lawrence, Gregory's speed and athleticism should continue to make an impact off the other edge.

Cowboys' Randy Gregory: Active Week 6
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gregory (knee) is officially active for Sunday's game against Jacksonville, Calvin Watkins of The Athletic reports.

Gregory was added to the injury report Thursday and was a limited practice participant the rest of the week. The 25-year-old should assume his usual rotational role on the Cowboys' defensive line.

Cowboys' Randy Gregory: Practices fully Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gregory (concussion/knee) practiced fully Wednesday.

Though Gregory cleared the concussion protocol ahead of the Cowboys' Week 2 matchup with the Giants, he was ultimately ruled inactive for the contest. Gregory's full participation in the team's first practice of the week bodes well for his chances of suiting up Sunday against the Seahawks now that he's further removed from the head injury. The 25-year-old is expected to fill a rotational role along Dallas' defensive line.

Cowboys' Randy Gregory: On track to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gregory (concussion) is expected to play in Sunday's game against the Seahawks, Jon Machota of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Gregory suffered the concussion in the season opener against Carolina, but he was held out of Sunday night's game against the Giants despite returning to practice Friday. The extra time off appears to have helped Gregory in his recovery, and an update on his status will come once the Cowboys release their first injury report of the week.

Cowboys' Randy Gregory: Inactive Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gregory (concussion) is listed as inactive for Sunday's game against the Giants, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.

Gregory was listed as doubtful heading into the evening, so this was not a surprising decision. He will remain sidelined until he can clear concussion protocol. In his absence, Dorance Armstrong will presumably continue providing the majority of depth at defensive end.
