The once off season distraction that was Randy Gregory has taught Cowboys fans over his troubled career in Dallas never to get their hopes too high. Winners of eleven straight, the services of the 2014 second-round pick have not necessarily been missed.
Update: According to new reports, Gregory will not be allowed to return to practice tomorrow. Instead, he is ineligible until after Week 15.
The NFL says Randy Gregory can't practice until after the Tampa Bay game, no early return, despite initial reports
All of this certainly could (UPDATE: has) come crashing down once again, but a Dallas defense that is looking for all the reinforcements they can get come playoff time could benefit greatly from a presence like Randy Gregory off the edge.
The Cowboys currently rank 22nd in the league with 23 sacks on the season.
