Randy Gregory got lucky on this one, but it’s probably has final chance before facing a year-long ban.
The Dallas Cowboys defensive end has won his appeal of a 10-game suspension for violating the NFL’s substance abuse program and will only be suspended for the first four games of the 2016 season, according to Clarence Hill of the Star-Telegram.
Per an NFL spokesman, the league would have no further comment on Gregory beyond what was announced on Feb. 19 when the four-game suspension was revealed.
Gregory’s status for the 2016 season remains in limbo.
The former Nebraska star was placed on the reserve/did not report list before training camp in July.
He is still in a substance abuse treatment facility, per a source.
Gregory, a second-round pick by the Cowboys in 2015 NFL Draft, has failed four tests since last year.
