Randy Gregory has withdrawn his appeal of his 10-game suspension for violating the NFL’s Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse, a source with knowledge of the situation told NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport.
The second-year pass rusher, who is out of rehab and was removed from the Dallas Cowboys’ reserve/did not report list last week, is currently two games into the four-game suspension he is serving for his first substance-abuse violation. With the 10-game suspension tacked on, he won’t be eligible to play until Week 15 when the Cowboys host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Dec. 18.
It has showed.
Johnson, in his second dance of the competition, did the Foxtrot with his partner, Lindsay Arnold, to the theme song of ’90s television show “Family Matters,” as part of TV Night. Johnson was dressed in bright yellow suspenders, a yellow-and-blue-striped oxford shirt with a collar, and hiked-up, rolled up jeans, with high socks underneath.
Essentially, he was a giant, 6-foot-5, crazy-built Steve Urkel, with glasses to boot.
“I’ve watched Urkel since I was a little kid,” Johnson said of the Family Matters” character portrayed by actor Jaleel White.
The injury took the air out of a terrific first-half performance. Garoppolo completed 18 of 27 passes for 234 yards and three scores in 25 minutes of game action. Despite having no Rob Gronkowski at his disposal, Garoppolo had the Patriots’ offense humming like it was 2007 and Tom Brady was running the show. He has specialized on third-and-long plays, going through his reads and displaying great pocket movement.
“You can’t point any fingers, we’re not a good football team right now,” Bears tight end Zach Miller said. “We didn’t play well. Our defense kept us in it early, but we didn’t do enough offensively to win that football game.”
