Cowboys' Randy Gregory officially suspended until Week 16

Dez Bryant may be so concerned about his knee injury that he skipped an MRI, but it's safe to say he'll be back on the field long before Randy Gregory.

The Dallas Cowboys defensive end, who's already serving a four-game suspension for violating the NFL's drug policy, officially received an additional 10-game suspension Thursday for a second violation.

Gregory, who dropped his appeal of the 10-game ban this month, has been doing "better and better" in workouts, coach Jason Garrett said earlier this week, however he won't be eligible to play until Week 16 against Detroit.

Gregory fell to the 60th pick of the 2015 draft after failing his drug test at the scouting combine. He missed four games with a sprained ankle as a rookie and recorded just 11 tackles in 12 games.

The Cowboys currently are without their past three second-round draft picks: Gregory (2015), rehabbing linebacker Jaylon Smith (2016) and suspended defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence (2014), who is eligible to return in Week 5.
