The NFL has fined Dallas Cowboys defensive end Randy Gregory for the first four games of the 2016 season because he violated the NFL's the league's policy on substance abuse.

This is not the first time that Gregory has failed a drug test. He failed one last year a couple of days before the NFL draft. Because of that, he fell to the second round to the Cowboys who decided to take a chance on him. And this is how repays the Cowboys.

It's bad enough that he struggled with injuries in his rookie year but now he won't be able to play until the 5th week of the season. He will still be able to participate in all the off-season programs and traning camp for the Cowboys including the pre-season games.
