Randy Gregory reportedly hoping to be reinstated for training camp

Randy Gregory

Dallas Cowboys defensive lineman Randy Gregory was suspended indefinitely at the start of the offseason for another violation of the NFL’s substance abuse policy, but he is hoping the league will allow him to rejoin his teammates to prepare for the 2019 season.

David Moore of the Dallas Morning News reports that Gregory is planning to apply for reinstatement at some point in the next two weeks, as he is hoping to be cleared to take part in training camp and preseason games. The NFL has yet to announce if Gregory will be be forced to sit out regular-season games, but that seems like a foregone conclusion given that this is his fourth suspension since he came into the league in 2015.

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has the option of reinstating Gregory for training camp and the preseason while still suspending him for regular-season games. That seems like it would be the best-case scenario for the 26-year-old.

Moore was told by a source that Gregory has not failed or missed a test since he was suspended five months ago and that he would not petition for reinstatement if he had.

Gregory played in 14 games last season after he was reinstated in July 2018. He had missed 30 of 32 possible games during his first two NFL seasons. The former Nebraska star has violated the NFL’s substance abuse policy multiple times and was suspended for the entire 2017 season. His history of getting into trouble off the field dates back to before the Cowboys drafted him in the second round.
