Randy Gregory’s career with the Dallas Cowboys might be on hold.
The defensive end was suspended indefinitely by the NFL on Tuesday for violating the league’s substance abuse policy, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.
Gregory recorded a career-high six sacks for the Cowboys in 2018 after being held out for the entire previous season as a repeat violator of the league’s substance abuse policy. His latest infraction would be his fourth and, according to Rapoport, constitute a violation of his conditional reinstatement last July.
Gregory, 26, was a second-round pick out of Nebraska in 2015.
The Cowboys are facing uncertainty elsewhere in their pass rush, as Pro Bowl defensive end Demarcus Lawrence is set to become a free agent. Dallas can use the franchise tag on Lawrence, however, and executive vice president Stephen Jones said Tuesday at the combine he was “confident” a deal would get done.
