ARLINGTON, Texas – Cowboys owner/general manager Jerry Jones did his best to update Randy Gregory's status after Sunday's loss to the Giants.
Sunday counted as the first game of Gregory's four-game suspension for violating the NFL's substance-abuse policy. But, as has been well-documented, there's no shortage of speculation that Gregory may also be facing a longer suspension in the future.
"It's being evaluated, and he's got a hearing. That's about all I know," Jones said.
Jones added that a date has not been set for the hearing. But the Cowboys will certainly be attentive to the situation, given their strong need for pass rushers at the moment.
Gregory entered a treatment program over the summer and did not participate in training camp or the preseason, but he has a locker at the team's new facility. It remains to be seen what the future holds, but the Cowboys will certainly want to know if Gregory's suspension sits at four games or longer.
Asked if he thought Gregory would play for the Cowboys in 2016, Jones didn't want to speculate.
"I don't want to be presumptuous – I don't want to be anything," he said. "I know that he's had a lot of good care, and he's been very conscientious about how he's approached this period of time and he's been in his rehab. He's been very conscientious."
