Cowboys DE Randy Gregory still under appeal for 10-game suspension

Sunday September 4th, 2016

Dallas Cowboys defensive end Randy Gregory is still awaiting word on his appeal of a 10-game suspension for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy, reports the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

The Star-Telegram originally reported that Gregory had won the appeal, but later corrected that the appeal is still on hold, and that the NFL mentioned “Gregory’s initial four-game suspension on a personal notice sent around the league Saturday night.”

The troubled former Nebraska standout was placed on the reserve/did not report list at the beginning of training camp as he is currently at a substance abuse treatment facility. Gregory joined the treatment program earlier this summer.

A second-round pick by the Cowboys in 2015, Gregory has failed four drug tests since entering the league.

Gregory played in 12 games as a rookie, but didn’t record as sack as he was limited with a high ankle sprain.
