Cowboys’ Randy Gregory, Neville Gallimore on way back for Week 14 clash with Washington

One week ago, Dallas Cowboys desperately looking for a win while welcoming the All-Pro defensive end back DeMarcus Lawrence to assist them in taking down New Orleans Saints in Week 13 and that’s exactly what he did. Despite not having played a regular season since Week 1, Lawrence shows no signs of rust and impact the game right from the start and through. Now, when they are ready to visit Washington football team, they hope to have the same or greater impact from Randy Gregory and Neville Gallimore, both are on their way back for the Cowboys’ first clash in 2021 with their bitter NFC East rivals – a team that will likely without starting tight Logan Thomas as a serious knee injury can occur.

Gallimore has been assigned to return from the wounded reserve and is only waiting to activate the 53-man roster, and while Gregory has yet to be reassigned, the team seems ready to pull two boosters. his trading activity in rapid succession this week – the goal is to have him in uniform at FedEx Field on Sunday, along with Gallimore and Lawrence, as originally noted by CBS Sports in November.

“We’re getting a lot of great players back on the roster designated to return,” team chief executive Stephen Jones told 105.3FM the Fan on Monday. “…We should be back this week, except for one surprise, definitely Randy Gregory and [Neville] Gallimore. So we’re bringing our people back. We just have to keep working here, and hopefully these guys will start playing well and playing fast together. “

So you have it.

As long as there aren’t any real-world surprise defeats this week, the Cowboys hope to get the defensive team back together on Sunday, and for the first time in 2021. While Lawrence hasn’t competed. Since Week 1, Gallimore hasn’t been out of action all season after he suffered a severely overstretched elbow in a pre-season game. All in all, Gregory has only played against Lawrence once this season (opening goal) and neither of them has played against Gallimore in 2021, proof of how devastated the Cowboys defense has been by trauma along with its impressive extent. saw them ranked in the top five of the league in several categories – despite such adversities.

The latter is testament to the breakout seasons of players like rookie phenom Micah Parsons and interceptor Trevon Diggs, but also for Dan Quinn, who managed to forge success in just his first year inheriting what was once one of the worst defenses in franchise history last season.

He’s got images of plums dancing in his head as he thinks about his defense finally getting healthy and at the perfect time, as the Cowboys try to build up the momentum in December they hope. Hope to be able to carry them until the end of January and into February.

“It made me think about the entire crew and where we were [in] Quinn said on Monday. And I think we’ve got 33 defensive players who’ve had meaningful tackles so far. If you had told me that on September 1 that we were going to play with 33 boys, I would have said, ‘Oh my gosh.’

“Now that it happened, I was like, ‘Oh, damn, that’s pretty cool.” There’s some great trust built and some confidence that happens when sometimes what you think can be the worst, losing someone for a long time, ends up being for the best because now they are. I have a large team willing to join hard for this block of the regular season. “

It was a logical point made by Quinn, the appearance of safety Jayron Kearse as a player in the event that no one is injured Donovan Wilson, as an example. And there is another, bigger, seen a particular player takes the NFL by storm with its added opportunities.

“We probably don’t have that moment when we put Micah on a number of different points,” Quinn said. “Now that we’ve got that part of his game, it allows for more expansion packs. I would definitely look forward to getting Randy, Micah and Law together. I think if you told me three of them in the game. The number they would have had been together on the pitch for just 28 moments leading to whatever, Week 13 or 14, it wasn’t going to go well.

“But in the end, having people in multiple roles and doing different things, I think that just adds value to what you’re doing. We’ll keep adding those people.

Sitting at 8-4 during the season and in first place in the NFC East with the conference No 1 seed still within reach, the Cowboys defensive unit has gone from deep pre-season concerns to welcome back star players alongside backers who often prove themselves capable of being startups. It’s a powerful concoction mixed in Dallas after a forgettable November, and unites Parsons with Lawrence, Gallimore and Gregory (who was a terror before the calf strain) as early as this Sunday. paints a picture that no opposing midfielder wants to think about .

But, again, it’s all about the latter two that should be on track over the next few days.

“[Gallimore and Gregory have] Had a great couple of weeks,” Jones added. They have to go out there and they’re going to take it one step further this week full of workouts. Unless there’s a step back, which we certainly don’t expect. We are preparing them to play the game, but they definitely have to keep making progress, which they have step by step.

“But they have to get the whole job done, which is full preparation for the game against the Washington Soccer Team.” Cowboys’ Randy Gregory, Neville Gallimore on way back for Week 14 clash with Washington
