Appeal of Cowboys DE Randy Gregory’s Suspension Still Ongoing

Randy Gregory

Cowboys defensive end Randy Gregory has not had his appeal heard regarding an additional suspension by the NFL for violating the substance abuse policy, a source told Ed Werder of ESPN on Sunday.

The NFL has not announced more than a four-game suspension for Gregory, and the league still considers his potential “4-plus-10” ?suspension to be pending, according to the source.

When final roster cuts were made Saturday by NFL teams, there was a mention next to Gregory’s name on the Cowboys’ roster of a four-game suspension, but that was in reference to his violation announced in February, not the additional violation reported in July, which the NFL has not made any announcement about.

It is unclear whether Gregory violated the substance abuse policy by failing or missing a test, but he is facing the possibility of having the suspension extended.

A source said Sunday that agent Deryk Gilmore filed an appeal and sent the league documentation to support the contention that Gregory did not commit a violation that should add to his previously announced suspension. There has not been a hearing on the matter, the source said.
