The Dallas Cowboys have activated defensive end Randy Gregory off the non-football injury list after a year away from football on a substance-abuse suspension.

Gregory has played in just two of the past 32 regular-season games because of multiple suspensions. Commissioner Roger Goodell reinstated him not long before the Cowboys reported to training camp in California.

The former Nebraska standout participated in a walkthrough practice for the first time Wednesday. Gregory wasn't expected to participate in the padded practice in the afternoon. Coach Jason Garrett said Dallas is "still going to be very deliberate with him."

The 25-year-old was banned for the first four games of 2016 before a 10-game suspension was announced while he served the first penalty. Gregory was suspended indefinitely after getting his first career sack in the final game of the 2016 regular season.

Just an absolute class kid who busted his ass and persevered when he wanted to quit years ago. So, so happy for him and his family.Katherine Terrell Kat_TerrellBengals OC Bill Lazor said when they walked out of the interview with Billy Price at the NFL scouting combine, the coaches all said quot;wow.quot; They said he really impressedPrice's versatility makes him an intriguing prospect. He spent his first three seasons at guard for the Buckeyes before moving to center in 2017 Leighton Vander Esch Jersey Elite , winning the聽Rimington Trophy as the nation's top player at the position.聽Price is a strong, aggressive mauler who has the potential to be a force in the run game.聽Lance Zierlein of offered the following scouting report on the interior offensive lineman:"Plays like a Wildling at times with tremendous explosiveness, strength and almost excessive initial charge. Price's power and leverage give him a huge advantage over most centers in this draft. He should be able to come into the league and deal with NFL power right away. However, his impatience as a blocker and tendency to charge in head-first will be used against him by savvy NFL opponents if he doesn't get it cleaned up. Price is an early starter with Pro Bowl potential."Chris Burke of The Athletic noted that Price "is so quick pulling and reaching the second level," while Chris Trapasso of CBS Sports added:聽Chris Trapasso ChrisTrapassoPrice has elite functional mobility. Quickly gets to 2nd-level amp;amp; routinely finds LBs. Extreme power and strong grip when going downhill. Heavy anchor and outstanding back bend vs. bull rushes but...Chris Trapasso ChrisTrapassoPrice鈥檚 lateral movement is good, not great. Was late on a few twists and against quick one-gappers. He鈥檚 a lot like Pat Elflein. Has better feet though. Do-it-all run-blocker. Fine pass-protector just much less effective in that area.As for whether Price settles at center or guard Kareem Martin Jersey Giants , Jon Ledyard of FanRag Sports likes him at the former:Jon Ledyard LedyardNFLDraftI like Billy Price鈥檚 tape at C in 2017 more than OG in 2016One thing to keep in mind with Price, however, is he suffered a minor pectoral tear while doing the bench press at this year's NFL Scouting Combine, per ESPN, though he is expected to be back in action by training camp. It didn't hurt his draft stock, and the Bengals will be expecting Price to be a difference-maker on the interior of their offensive line for years.ESPN's Adam Schefter tweeted a note from Price's doctor letting teams know he will be ready for training camp in July:Adam Schefter AdamSchefterNFL teams are being notified today that Ohio State OL Billy Price Giants Kareem Martin Jersey , who suffered an incomplete pec tear at the combine, is expected to be ready for training camp in July without restriction, per his doctor鈥檚 letter. vYqmNlkUguWith聽Russell Bodine now in Buffalo, center was a huge need for the Bengals. Price should slide in and start immediately, helping to solidify a weak group. His addition, paired with the trade for tackle Cordy Glenn Fred Warner Jersey Elite , should fuel an improvement in the team's line play.That's big news for a squad that finished 30th in rushing yards in 2017. Price's selection isn't the sexiest one, but it's an important upgrade..
