The NFL will rule on defensive end Randy Gregory's appeal of a missed drug test in the next seven to 10 days, Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports. This according to a source.
A decision will be made before the Dallas Cowboys suit up for the NFC Divisional Playoffs on Sunday, Jan. 15, the source said.
Gregory was back with the Cowboys Wednesday after flying to New York on Tuesday to appeal the missed test that has him in the cross hairs of a year-long suspension.
Gregory was suspended for the first 14 games of the season for violating the league's substance abuse policy.
The latest issue came up while he was serving the suspension

How kind of them. Probably about an hour before

So the issue now being reviewed is a missed drug test not an actual failed test. I didn't know what the actual issue was.
Since Day One
Was great to see him making plays for a couple games.
He seemed to be well-spoken in the locker room interview, too.
The whole thing is ludicrous. Akin to swatting a fly with a sledgehammer.
The sad thing is we have seen him back on the field and he looks great. But if they suspend him for another season they may literally be ruining the kids career. Just seems silly to me over something that didn't harm anyone and wasn't a performance enhancer. The league really should rethink there policy. On a side note though, the guy was in rehab most of the time I thought. How the hell did he miss a test?
