On Sunday, Dallas Cowboys defensive end Randy Gregory just his second game of this season and collected his first career sack. He will not be able to participate in this upcoming offseason, and can not return to game-play until the 2017 playoffs.

Gregory played just two games this season, in Weeks 16 and 17, following a four-game suspension to start the season and a 10-game ban issued after he failed a drug test while sitting out those first four games.

Fantasy Impact The NFL officially handed Gregory his looming one-year suspension for multiple violations of the league's substance abuse policy Thursday. He could, however, appeal the suspension, which would allow him to play until the appeal process was played out.

And the visitors declared their innings at 443-9, with Ali remaining unbeaten on 205 from 364 deliveries out of which 20 were fours.

The woman in Gregory's life is Nancy - the mother of the his 3-month-old daughter - who clearly doesn't believe the 24-year-old is the screwup people are making him out to be.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has said he intends to support Gregory, but the latest ban raises doubt as to whether he will be on the Dallas roster when he is eligible to return.

After a Week 15 reinstatement, there was some optimism the pass rusher might have been allowed to join the Cowboys for their playoff run. According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Gregory can apply for reinstatement on or after November 6. However, unlike this season, Gregory missed four games during his rookie season due to a lingering ankle injury.
