Randy Gregory Won’t Play in Cowboys-Broncos Preseason Game

If you weren't looking forward to seeing lining up across from his former teammates, you've been given a reprieve. The former Cowboy remains on the Physically Unable to Perform list and won't be playing when Dallas visits the in Saturday's opener.

Gregory is still recovering from shoulder surgery. He started Denver's on PUP and is not expected to participate in any preseason games, though the Broncos hope to have him ready for Week One.

By missing this week's matchup, Randy's chances of ever suiting up against the Cowboys have taken a big hit. Dallas and Denver just played each other in 2021 so, if the current scheduling rotation holds, their next meeting regular-season game may not come until the 2025 season.

Of course, the introduction of the 17th game does increase opportunities for interconference meetings. And there's always the possibility of another preseason date between the two clubs.

Gregory left the Cowboys this offseason after seven tumultuous years. Just as it seemed the was finally getting his career on track, disputes over language in a proposed contract last March angered Randy and pushed the into the Broncos' arms.

Dallas has had a busy offseason trying to replace Gregory and boost their . They re-signed , drafted in the 2nd round, and are taking a flier on former 1st-round pick .

Thankfully, is still here as the Cowboys' top pass-rushing option. But getting more from their defensive ends is critical to keeping Parsons versatile and making the more dangerous overall.

Holding onto Randy Gregory certainly would've helped. He's one of the more gifted pass rushers we've seen in Dallas over many years and showed his big-play potential several times in 2021. Thankfully, he won't be making life difficult for the Cowboys this Saturday.
