Dallas Cowboys pass-rusher Randy Gregory has been suspended indefinitely for again violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy and the terms of his conditional reinstatement, the league announced Tuesday.

Gregory missed all but two games in 2016 and the entire 2017 season because of multiple violations of the policy in his first two seasons with the Cowboys. 

He returned to play in 14 games in 2018 and finished second on the Cowboys with six sacks and 28 quarterback pressures.

According to sources, the Cowboys were aware Gregory was facing another penalty and were not caught off guard by the news.

“Nobody is in panic mode,” Gregory’s attorney, Daniel Moskowitz, said. “He’s going to do everything and anything he can to get back on the field as soon as possible.”

As per terms of the drug policy, Gregory was tested up to 10 times a month last season and he was required to have meetings with the league’s medical director.

“I certainly commend what he did last year,” Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones said of Gregory on Tuesday, before the suspension was announced. “I mean he came in after not playing ball for over a year, and I think he really played well and was working himself into it.

Under terms of the suspension, Gregory can’t participate in the Cowboys’ offseason program and can only visit the team’s practice facility to meet with an individual concerning his treatment.
