Dallas Cowboys pass rusher Randy Gregory is reportedly facing another suspension by the NFL for a failed drug test and is looking at a minimum 10-game suspension, per Ian Rapoport of NFL Media, who also reports the team worries Gregory may never play again.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter first reported Gregory had failed another test.

Rapoport added the following:

Gregory was a risky pick when the Cowboys selected him in the second round of last year’s draft. He admittedly tested positive for marijuana at the NFL Scouting Combine.

He was then suspended the first four games of the upcoming season after failing a drug test, presumably for marijuana. The four-game ban means he tested positive three times last year, and he has now failed a fourth test in the span of just over one year.

One of the more talented pass rushers to come out of the draft a year ago, the Cowboys had high hopes for him, despite his off-field issues. At this point, one hopes he doesn’t go the way of Johnny Manziel and countless others who have wasted their talent.
