Dallas Cowboys defensive end Randy Gregory will be sidelined multiple weeks with a calf injury suffered during Wednesday’s practice, head coach Mike McCarthy said Thursday.
Gregory, who shares the team lead with five sacks, could end up on injured reserve.
The NFC East-leading Cowboys (6-2) host the Atlanta Falcons (4-4) on Sunday.
Gregory, who turns 29 later this month, also has 12 quarterback hits, 10 tackles, two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery in seven games (six starts) this season.
He has 15.5 sacks, 47 QB hits, 76 tackles and seven forced fumbles in 45 games (seven starts) since the Cowboys drafted him in the third round in 2015.
