Cowboys’ Randy Gregory Facing One-Year Ban

Randy Gregory has failed yet another drug test, according to Mike Garafolo and Ian Rapoport of NFL.com (Twitter link). According to the league’s rules for substance abuse, Gregory’s test could trigger a one-year ban. Randy Gregory (Vertical)

Gregory was originally scheduled to return to action later on this season. Now, barring a successful appeal, he is done for 2016 and part of 2017.

As a rookie, Gregory was in uniform 12 contests and missed a good chunk of games due to an ankle injury. In total, he had eleven tackles and no sacks. The Cowboys have been holding out hope that Gregory could fulfill his vast potential, but it now seems like he is facing even greater demons than previously thought.

Gregory completed a stint at a Massachusetts rehab facility in September and those close to him insisted that he had been clean for a while. Initially suspended through Week 16, the hope was that Gregory could clean up his life away from the field while working his way back to football shape. Unfortunately, that hasn’t happened for the former Nebraska standout.

    Someday Dallas will rid itself of JJones’ draft choices. Another bonehead taken by the Dallas genius.

      When? When he passes and he kids run the team? That teams forever cursed with dummies and knuckleheads running it. Thinking they’re the NY Yankees of football or something. They ain’t. They never was. Never will be. They ain’t even got the most Super Bowls.
