Former Husker Gregory reinstated from NFL suspension
Former Husker defensive lineman Randy Gregory has officially been reinstated.
The current Dallas Cowboys defensive end has been suspended the past 18 months for violating the league's substance abuse policy.
In an official statement Tuesday afternoon, the NFL said, “Gregory may join the Cowboys at training camp and participate in meetings, conditioning work and similar activities. Once arrangements have been confirmed regarding Gregory’s clinical resources in Dallas, and subject to continued compliance with the terms of his reinstatement and all aspects of the NFL-NFLPA Policy and Program on Substances of Abuse, he will be permitted to participate in all activities, including practices and games.”
Gregory reportedly applied for reinstatement in mid-May, paving the way for the NFL to render a decision by its designated 60-day window for such matters.
Gregory was suspended at least one year for violating the league’s substance abuse policy again in January 2017. Gregory had just returned from a 14-game suspension to start the 2016 season.
He was taken as the 60th pick overall in the 2015 NFL Draft.
