Former Husker and Dallas Cowboys pass rusher Randy Gregory, who’s been suspended without pay since January 2017 for repeated substance abuse violations, has been reinstated on a conditional basis by the NFL.
Gregory may join the Cowboys for training camp, meetings, conditioning and other activities. Once Gregory’s clinical resources in Dallas have been confirmed, and with continued compliance, Gregory will be allowed to participate in practices and games.
Gregory has been suspended for more games than he’s played since entering the NFL as a second-round draft pick in 2015 after forgoing his senior season. He played in 12 games as a rookie reserve, but has been held out for 30 regular-season games. It started with a four-game suspension in 2016, followed by a ten-game suspension. He was then held out for the entire 2017 season.
Gregory played for Nebraska in 2013 and ’14, recording 120 total tackles including 29 for loss and 17.5 sacks. His 10.5 sacks in 2013 led the Big Ten Conference and earned him first-team All-Big Ten honors.
