Defensive end Randy Gregory returned to practice with the Dallas Cowboys for the first time in 20 months on Wednesday, per Michael Gehlken of the Dallas Morning News.

Gregory was conditionally reinstated by the NFL in September after missing all of the 2019 season while suspended for repeated violations of the league’s substance-abuse policy. Gregory was allowed to be around the team in the past several weeks but he was only allowed to attend meetings, do conditioning work and individual workouts. He can practice with the team for the next two weeks before he’s expected to be able to return to action for the Cowboys’ Week 7 game against the Washington Football Team.

Gregory last played in a Divisional Round playoff game against the Los Angeles Rams in January, 2019. The NFL would suspended Gregory indefinitely in February. Gregory also missed all of the 2017 season to suspension.

Gregory has appeared in 28 career regular season games with 7.0 career sacks, 23 quarterback hits and two forced fumbles.

  1. I am glad this kid is back on the field again but more importantly i hope his life is now straightened out for good.

  2. Discipline has become a dirty word in Jerry Jones’ world. Why add to the lack of discipline, exhibited by an overweight head coach and a porous defense, by bringing back a repeated substance abuser whose imbibing of illicit drugs is a testimony to the lack of discipline in his psyche? How many mechanisms can one owner employ to adversely affect the morale of a team from his endless critique of Dak Prescott, the best player on the team, to bringing back a player with multiple league suspensions over prohibited substances? And you can bet that if the NFL legalized every controlled substance in the drug lexicon, some players, and owners, would still find a way to cheat.

  3. OK Jerry, I hope you rememer what Goodell did to Randy (lay out an extra 7 games) the next time the Commishomes up for salary review!
