Earlier this year, Dallas Cowboys' Randy Gregory was suspended by the NFL for the first four games of the 2016 season for failing a drugs test.

A few months later, he failed a second drug test, extending his suspension by 10 games, meaning he would miss 14 in total.

Just as it looked promising that he could be coming back to the field soon - due to return December 19 - reports have emerged stating he could be out for a lot longer.

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport and Mike Garafolo, the defensive end has once again failed another drug test, his third, meaning he could be suspended for a year.

This possible year-long suspension would be added on top of his 14-game suspension he has already. Should he appeal his latest suspension and lose, he will not be allowed to play this season. stated in their report that the league has said: "The league has not been notified of any new violations."

Considering how ineffective Gregory was during his rookie campaign in 2015, and how successful the Cowboys have been without him this season, questions will be asked if the team actually still needs him on their roster.

Taking into account this may be the third time the defensive end has failed a drug test when he hasn't even been in the league for a full two seasons, it wouldn't be surprising if we never see the 23-year-old play again.

When you take into account how other teams have dealt with drug offenders in the past, this scenario isn't out of the realm of possibility.
