Cowboys DE Randy Gregory appeared in Saturday's preseason game against the Bengals.
He logged 10 defensive snaps during the first half. It was Gregory's first game action since 2016 after being suspended for all of last season. "It felt real good," said the 25-year-old. Now that his off-field issues are behind him, the Nebraska is hoping to make an immediate impact as a pass-rusher. The Cowboys could use help in that area with David Irving suspended for the first four games. Aug 19 - 9:00 AM

Cowboys DE Randy Gregory declared himself game-ready.

He's hoping to make his preseason debut Saturday against the Bengals. Owner/GM Jerry Jones said earlier this week that he fully expected Gregory to play in the Cowboys' regular season opener at Carolina. The 25-year-old was reinstated last month following a year-long suspension for repeated violations of the league's substance abuse policy.

Jerry Jones expects DE Randy Gregory to play Week 1.

Gregory was reinstated from his indefinite suspension last month. He did not play in the preseason opener and is not expected to play in the second game, but Jones remains optimistic. "I did notice some of his trademark skill out there on a couple of snaps that he took out there today," Jones said. "He’s just got the ability to create some pressure." If he is able to get on the field, Gregory should provide a nice boost to Dallas' pass rush.

NFL reinstated Cowboys DE Randy Gregory from his indefinite suspension for violating the league's substance-abuse policy.

Drug bans have limited Gregory to just two appearances since 2015. He turned 25 in the interim. The No. 60 overall pick of the 2015 draft, Gregory has only one sack across 14 NFL appearances, but untapped potential. The Cowboys are perennially in need of pass-rushing help, and Gregory could provide a nice boost in sub-packages if he manages to stay on the field in 2018.

ESPN Dallas reports the Cowboys are hoping for a decision on DE Randy Gregory's reinstatement around the start of training camp.

Gregory met with commissioner Roger Goodell in early June. He's reportedly passed a drug test for six straight months, putting him on track for reinstatement after sitting out the last two seasons. With Dallas missing Maliek Collins (foot surgery) and David Irving (suspended) on their defensive line, there could be a role for Gregory in sub-packages.

Suspended Cowboys DE Randy Gregory met with commissioner Roger Goodell on Tuesday.

In treatment, Gregory has reportedly passed a drug test every day for the past six months. He's been suspended since early in the 2016 season. Provided there aren't any speed bumps, the meeting with Goodell should be one of Gregory's final hurdles to clear before reinstatement. That's if the commissioner bought what Gregory was selling.
Jun 12 - 7:59 PM

ESPN's Todd Archer reports suspended DE Randy Gregory is expected to meet with league officials this week.

It is the next step after Gregory filed for reinstatement "within the past two weeks." The meeting could include commissioner Roger Goodell, but it is not clear if he will attend. Gregory has played two games since 2015 and was suspended all of last season.

Suspended DE Randy Gregory will apply for reinstatement on Thursday.

The No. 60 overall pick in 2015, Gregory recently wrapped up six weeks in intensive drug and alcohol rehab and counseling, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. He's appeared in just 14 career games and missed all of last season while banned. Gregory would be a boost to Dallas' pass rush.
May 16 - 1:11 PM

The Dallas Morning News reports suspended DE Randy Gregory will apply for reinstatement this month.

Gregory was suspended all of 2017 after being banned for all but two games in 2016, and TMZ Sports reported he failed another drug test last spring while he was suspended. If the report is true, it could make it difficult for him to gain reinstatement. Once Gregory files, he will have to meet with Roger Goodell before the commissioner makes a decision. The Cowboys should find a place for the former second-round pick if he gets cleared.
May 10 - 9:15 AM

The Dallas Morning News reports suspended DE Randy Gregory is in the process of applying for reinstatement.

Gregory hasn't appeared in a game since the final week of 2016. He's been "laying the groundwork" for a return and could meet with Commissioner Roger Goodell this offseason. EVP Stephen Jones said at the Combine he was moving forward without Gregory, but the Dallas Morning News expects the Cowboys to find a place for him if he's cleared. Despite not showing much before his suspensions, getting Gregory back would give the Cowboys a pass-rushing upgrade in sub-packages.
Mar 28 - 5:40 PM

Cowboys EVP Stephen Jones says the team is taking a "worst-case scenario" outlook with suspended DE Randy Gregory.

Jones essentially said the Cowboys will believe Gregory is back when they see it. The No. 60 overall pick of the 2015 draft has missed all but two games with suspension over the past two seasons. He is eligible to apply for reinstatement this offseason and is expected to do so.
Feb 27 - 1:28 PM

Suspended Cowboys DE Randy Gregory is expected to apply for reinstatement in the offseason.

Gregory is technically eligible to apply on Nov. 6, but is suspended through the end of the 2017 season. He will instead wait until the offseason. Gregory has made just 14 appearances since being the No. 60 overall pick of the 2015 draft.

TMZ Sports reports Cowboys suspended DE Randy Gregory failed another drug test.

Gregory is currently serving a suspension of at least one year for a previous failed test. TMZ Sports reports Gregory has "blown off" NFL officials since being notified of the failed test in March, and "people connected to Gregory" believe his NFL career might be over. If he did actually fail another test, his friends are likely correct. A second-round pick in 2015, Gregory has played in just 14 games in two seasons including just two last year because of injury and suspension.

NFL suspended Cowboys DE Randy Gregory at least one year for violating the league's substance-abuse policy.

Gregory's return lasted all of two games. Before he's accepted back in the league, he'll have to apply for reinstatement. Gregory has battled substance abuse issues since his college days at Nebraska. This is already his third suspension since entering the league in 2015. Gregory has proven to be a solid pass-rusher when he's not suspended, but his continual disregard for the league's drug policy could cost him his career.
Thu, Jan 5, 2017 05:01:00 PM

Randy Gregory's appeal hearing for his one-year suspension is scheduled for Tuesday.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports there could be a "postponement" because Gregory was not able to acquire an agent before the hearing. If the appeal is heard this week, a decision likely will be handed down before the Cowboys open the playoffs in the Divisional Round, making Gregory questionable at best to participate. Perhaps the postponement will allow Gregory to play in Dallas' first playoff game.
