Suspended Dallas Cowboys defensive end Randy Gregory remains in the NFL’s drug rehab program, and his status for the 2019 NFL season is now a guessing game.

The Cowboys do not know what is going to happen with Gregory after he flunked his fourth drug test, and was placed on the suspended list.

Say this for Gregory, he is consistent.

The Cowboys are hopeful the NFL will not be harsh on Gregory, and that he will potentially be available for the entire season.

Per the rules of the suspension, Gregory did not attend Day 1 of the Cowboys’ minicamp held on Tuesday. He won’t attend Days 2 or 3, either.

The Cowboys are well-versed in these matters; they know the NFL will address Gregory when it is good and ready. It won’t be this month. It will be sometime in July, and it will be at commissioner Roger Goodell’s convenience.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones may be too late to affect change for his favorite “ugly baby,” but if he is serious about the NFL re-shaping its dated stance towards marijuana he is going to have to go at it alone.
