Hey there, Cowboys fans. If you were looking for a silver lining from Sunday’s disappointing 16-8 losst against the Carolina Panthers, we’ve got you covered.
Randy Gregory exited the aforementioned game in the second quarter with a concussion. However, the Cowboys’ defensive lineman gave a brief yet encouraging update on Twitter to the Dallas faithful on Monday.
I’ll be alright 😃

Simple as that, folks.
However, some developing news could throw some doubt into the picture, as Gregory has apparently suffered a substance abuse relapse and could be punished by the league. The NFL apparently could’ve suspended him for Week 1, but will continue to study the case until they make their final decision.
So the real question is…what’s Gregory referring to in his Tweet?
Randy Gregory suffered relapse in August, may face discipline or a decision from the NFL as early as this week, per sources.https://t.co/vJ5SOUYr0w

He either knows he’s going to get off the hook from the NFL or that he’s been cleared to play after suffering a concussion. Perhaps both.
Certainly, that’s what Dallas fans are hoping. The pass rusher has missed 30 of the last 32 regular season games as a result of his off-the-field issues. The last thing fans want to see is him miss more action.
