Being in the NFL, comes with many rules and regulations that need to be followed. Unfortunately Dallas Cowboys defensive end Randy Gregory was suspended due to violation of the NFL’s substance abuse policy. He was placed on the reserve/exempt list until further notice. As of Monday December 19, 2016 Gregory was activated to the active roster after missing 14 games of the season. He returned to practice on Thursday determined to get back out on that field. Due to Gregory being put back on the active list, the Cowboys had to release someone and they did just that. They released Zach Moore and placed him on the 53 man roster last week.
Since Gregory is back on the active roster, its being said that he is going to have significant playing time in the game tonight against the Detroit Lions. Tonight is a big deal due to Gregory not playing since last year’s season finale. Last year he suffered from a high ankle sprain which caused him to not be able to play for most of the season. He attended an out of state rehab facility before returning to the team in September. Coach Marinelli said, “he looks good. I mean, he so explosive off the ball. That’s all the same. He’s thicker and gained weight. He looks really good now.” Not only is he excited t get back out on the field, his coaches are excited as well. Good Luck tonight Gregory.
