Randy Gregory injured during Dallas Cowboys win

Published 1 Comments

The Dallas Cowboys pulled off a big comeback to beat the New York Giants on Sunday night, but the win came at a cost.

Injury Nightmare

The Cowboys lost star wide receiver Dez Bryant for a while after he suffered a broken bone in his foot that will likely require surgery. But that wasn't the end of things for Dallas.

Rookie Randy Gregory will also be out for a sustained period of time, after being taken out of the game at AT&T Stadium and not returning.

Gregory, a defensive end, could be out for a similar amount of time to Bryant, after suffering a high ankle sprain in his very first NFL regular season appearance.

Early Return?

After the game, Gregory spoke to Drew Davison of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram about his injury and revealed that he was optimistic about an early return.

“I’m optimistic, but it sucks,” Gregory said. “It’ll heal up. I’ll definitely be in the training room a lot, but I’ll be good to go after a couple weeks hopefully.”

Gregory will have an MRI today to assess the extent of the damage to his ankle and will be given a better idea of when he might be able to return to the lineup for the Cowboys. An injury of this type usually takes 4-6 weeks to recover from.

The news about Gregory will hit the Cowboys hard. With Greg Hardy suspended for the fist four games of the season, the Cowboys are going to be short on pass rushers as they head to Philadelphia for their week two Divisional matchup with the Eagles.
