Cowboys’ Randy Gregory To Play This Week?

It seemed nearly impossible one month ago, but Randy Gregory is now slated to suit up for the Cowboys as the regular season winds down, Ian Rapoport of NFL.com tweets. As previously reported, Gregory will practice this week. Barring league interference, Rapoport hears that he will play this week against Detroit. Randy Gregory (vertical)

Still appealing a one-year ban, Gregory has been given the green light to participate in team activities while things get sorted out. While some fans have grown impatient with Gregory’s off-the-field troubles, owner Jerry Jones has been steadfast in his support of the defensive end.

I, of course, know the details of his situation, and I can’t and I won’t comment on details about it,” Jones said. “But I am not giving up on Randy Gregory for the Cowboys and certainly not giving up on him as a person in life — at all. Not that it makes any difference that I do, but I do not dismiss him from our future.”

The Cowboys are now 12-2 after topping the Buccaneers on Sunday night. Dallas has clinched a playoff berth and they now have their sights set on locking down the NFC East. With one win in the final two games, they’ll shut the door on the Giants. According to Five Thirty Eight, the Cowboys have a 97% chance of winning the NFC East at this point.

    Cowboys writers compare this dude to Reggie White. Hopefully he makes it to the field.

      That’s an excellent compassion. Except that Reggie White was productive, didn’t smoke marijuana leading up to the NFL draft, and didn’t get suspended for substance issues. Also Reggie White is an all time great and Randy Gregory has been a disaster and a disappointment…so great comparison.

      Anyone see Darren McFadden play yesterday? He reminds me of Walter Payton. (McFadden, not Zeke). Except that Payton was 5,000x better. Same thing.

        No it’s not the same thing…If they were comparing Gregory to white they would be comparing his football potential not his character or off field antics. With McFadden and PAyton you have history with both to make a fair comparison. With White and Gregory you only have the potential of Gregory to the history of White.

      Sorry, I’m calling you out for BS on that one. White had almost 50 pounds on Gregory; they aren’t even remotely the same TYPE of player, and that’s before you factor in the difference in level of player. Cite a professional who actually compared the two and I’ll head over there and release the hounds, but I don’t think it actually happened.

      You have every right to be frustrated! Goodell is a bum and the NFLPA needs to do something about this in the next CBA. If I were them, I would demand he surrender his punishment powers BEFORE going to the table for talks; he’s proven that he can’t hold that power, so he needs to surrender it without “getting anything back”.
