Troubled Dallas Cowboys defensive end Randy Gregory is once again making headlines for all the wrong reasons. Already serving a four game suspension to start 2016, for repeated violation of the league’s substance abuse policy, it has now been reported that Gregory has checked into a rehab facility – which means he will miss the Cowboys training camp, and a chance to get much-needed reps.
Sources: Cowboys pass-rusher Randy Gregory has checked into treatment facility, won’t report to training camp. Already suspended
As if things couldn’t get much worse for the talented second year pass rusher, who was already looking at returning with tons of rust to shake off in week 5 of the 2016 season, it was then reported that this gloom reality may be shattered as well for Gregory.
Randy Gregory had another violation of NFL’s substance abuse policy and is now facing a longer suspension, sources tell @toddarcher and me.
With another failed test, Gregory would be hit with a 10 game suspension, similar to Cowboys’ middle linebacker Rolando McClain.
All of this news comes at a time that is supposed to be exciting for the Dallas Cowboys and their fans. The organization is in full Super Bowl mode with Tony Romo back in action, but the defense clearly has not gotten this message.
It is okay to be frustrated, Cowboys Nation. It is okay to expect much more, Cowboys Nation. It is okay to want this team to make an example out of Randy Gregory, and perhaps Rolando McClain, even if it means winning less on Sundays.
