Cowboys defensive end Randy Gregory, who has already been suspended for the first four games of the season, is facing a longer suspension for another violation of the league’s drug policy, ESPN’s Todd Archer and Adam Schefter report

Gregory could be suspended for at least 10 games and the Cowboys are concerned he may not play again, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reports

Gregory has checked into a treatment facility and will not report to training camp, ESPN’s Ed Werder reports.

Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett declined to say whether Gregory will report to camp in California later this week.

Gregory was a highly touted prospect while at Nebraska but fell to the second round after testing positive for marijuana during the NFL combine. He has also reportedly dealt with mental health issues.

Gregory missed four games as a rookie last season with an ankle injury. He had seven solo tackles and no sacks in 12 games.
