Think back to the last time you said hello to someone.

Cowboy

Randy Gregory (born November 23, 1992) is an American football defensive end for the Dallas Cowboys of the National Football League. He played college football at Nebraska, and was drafted by the Cowboys in the second round of the 2015 NFL Draft.

The Cowboys have not had DeMarcus Lawrence since the season opener after he broke his foot in practice. He is likely a few weeks from returning. The rest of the full-time defensive line has accounted for 4.5 sacks this season; however, Parsons, a rookie linebacker who also has five sacks, has been used as an edge rusher at times this season.

Week

Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy said Thursday he expected the team's leading edge rusher to miss "multiple weeks." Gregory's I-R designation officially rules him out the next three games for the Cowboys. Right now, the team plans to replace Gregory from within their roster and not look for free-agent help.

McCarthy said the injury occurred during one-on-one pass rush drills. Gregory is the third Cowboy to suffer a calf injury this season. Wide receiver Michael Gallup has missed the past seven games with a calf strain but will make his return this week. Quarterback Dak Prescott missed one game (two weeks with the bye week) with a calf strain. (Source: www.espn.com)

McCarthy said the injury occurred during one-on-one pass rush drills. Gregory is the third Cowboy to suffer a calf injury this season. Wide receiver Michael Gallup has missed the past seven games with a calf strain but will make his return this week. Quarterback Dak Prescott missed one game (two weeks with the bye week) with a calf strain.

The biggest stroke of that highlighter rubs across the name of Chauncey Golston, a rookie third-round pick who fired out of the gate at minicamp/OTAs before missing all of training camp on the team's PUP (physically unable to perform) list. He returned to make his NFL debut in Week 3 and has mostly played above average -- flashing at times -- as he ramps up (again, he had no camp or preseason), but he now has six games under his belt and stands to see a huge uptick from the 30 defensive snaps (38%) he played against the Broncos.

Player



Drafted in 2015, this was Gregory's first shot at a full productive season, having been mired in suspensions throughout his career due to the NFL's substance abuse policy. Believing in his potential as a player and his determination to play, the Cowboys stuck with Gregory, and their patience was being rewarded this season. The defensive end had recorded 12 quarterback hits, five sacks, two forced fumbles, and one fumble recovery in seven games thus far.

The MRI results from Wednesday evening suggested a move to three-week IR for Gregory, who with his five sacks has been among Dallas' best defensive players during the team's 6-2 start. And on Thursday afternoon, DallasCowboys.com reported that the IR move has been made. (Source: www.si.com)
