FRISCO The NFL will rule on defensive end Randy Gregory's appeal of a missed drug test in the next seven to 10 days, according to a source.
A decision will be made before the Dallas Cowboys suit up for the NFC Divisional Playoffs on Sunday, Jan. 15, the source said.
Gregory was back with the Cowboys Wednesday after flying to New York on Tuesday to appeal the missed test that has him in the cross hairs of a year-long suspension.
He said he doesn't know what the NFL will decide.
