Randy Gregory Reinstated by NFL; When Can He Start Playing?

As the Dallas Cowboys are busy putting their roster together for the , a potential major contributor has now become available. After a long wait, Defensive End Randy Gregory has finally been reinstated and will be able to play starting in the Week 7 game against Washington.

Gregory missed the entire under indefinite following repeated violations of the NFL's substance abuse policy. He had six in 14 games for Dallas in 2018.

The is being called “conditional” by the league.

The Cowboys were already looking good in their with being joined by veterans and . Getting Randy Gregory back will give them even more dynamic talent and options for various formations.

The 27-year-old Gregory took to his own after the announcement to thank those who've helped him get his career back.

Dallas should receive a roster exemption for Gregory until Week 7, as the league is mandating he's ineligible to play any sooner. That spot will likely go to third-year DE , and then how the Cowboys make room for Gregory in October will depend on who's healthy and what other circumstances there are at that time.

For now, we can join with Randy in celebrating his return to football and to Dallas. No matter what he eventually does on the field, this is its own victory.

Gregory has shown the ability in the past to jump right in after a long lay off and have an impact. Should be in shape and ready to go by week 7. Just another bullet in the chamber for this D Line. Can never ever have enuf pass rushers. At week 7 should have good idea of the roster needs at that point (injuries, who is productive etc.)
