Cowboys DE Greg Hardy suffers strain in side


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(7/31/2015) Cowboys defensive end Greg Hardy suffered a strain in his left side during Thursday's practice, which the team said is not considered serious, per the Dallas Morning News. 

Hardy told fans "I'm invicible," as he signed autographs after practice. The Cowboys training staff was checking out Hardy after practice as a precautionary measure. 

"To be honest with you, with Greg right from the start, he was actually going too hard," Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said. "He was going too hard in the weight room and too hard on the field early on in the offseason."


Cowboys' Hardy could take legal action to further reduce suspension


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/16/2015) Although an arbitrator reduced Greg Hardy's suspension from 10 to four games, the Cowboys defensive end could consider legal action to have the suspension reduced even more, as the NFLPA contends based on the personal conduct policy in place when Hardy’s arrest for domestic violence occurred that he should miss only two games.

A decision on whether Hardy accepts the four-game ban or takes legal action against the league is expected soon, and Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said Wednesday the next step is completely up to Hardy.

The Cowboys signed Hardy in March before commissioner Roger Goodell suspended Hardy for 10 games for “conduct detrimental to the league.” 

“What I’m proud of it is that we have seen that he’s a serious influence to the tempo, to the passion, to the competitiveness of practicing that probably will carry over to games,” Jones said, per the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “That’s a great deal. I’m just glad to have him out there. I’m glad to have him on the field. So from that standpoint, I’m pleased that we’re going to having his contribution this year.”

Greg Hardy has suspension reduced from 10 to four games


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/10/2015) Cowboys defensive end Greg Hardy had his suspension reduced from 10 to four games, the NFL announced Friday. 

A judge found Hardy guilty of domestic violence in July 2014 and sentenced him to 18 months probation after suspending a 60-day jail sentence. The NFL suspended Hardy 10 games in April, noting that Hardy violated the league's personal conduct policy.

“After consideration of all the record evidence and arguments, I conclude that the Commissioner acted within his authority and properly exercised his discretion in finding that Hardy violated the NFL Personal Conduct Policy,” arbitrator Harold Henderson said in a statement Friday. “I find that the conduct of Hardy clearly violates the letter and spirit of any version of the PCP since its inception, and of the NFL Constitution and Bylaws long before then. The egregious conduct exhibited here is indefensible in the NFL.

“However, 10 games is simply too much, in my view, of an increase over prior cases without notice such as was done last year, when the ‘baseline’ for discipline in domestic violence or sexual assault cases was announced as a six-game suspension. Therefore, the discipline of Mr. Hardy hereby is modified to a suspension of four games; all other terms of the discipline letter remain in place.”


Cowboys impressed with Greg Hardy's performance on the field


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(6/3/2015) While Cowboys linebacker Greg Hardy waits to hear the appeal on his 10-game suspension, he has been able to participate in the team's OTA sessions, which has left a favorable impression on his teammates, reports The Dallas Morning News.

"He's explosive," tight end Jason Witten said. "He plays until the whistle blows… To have a guy come in and play that way, I think, speaks volumes for what kind of character he is and what kind of individual he is."

Moreover, Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones said Wednesday he wasn't sure when the final decision on Hardy's suspension would be made.

"I think it's usually two weeks, is the time frame," he said. "I don't think it's a rule or anything, but that's usually what you expect. Sometimes it can be sooner."


Cowboys DE Greg Hardy misses Wednesday's OTA due to illness


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(6/3/2015) Cowboys defensive end Greg Hardy was not at Wednesday's OTA session because of an illness, reports the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

Cowboys DE Greg Hardy appeals 10-game suspension


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(5/28/2015) Cowboys defensive end Greg Hardy and his representatives made an appearance in Washington D.C. this morning to argue in favor of reducing or overturning his 10-game suspension, per The Dallas Morning News.

Dallas, which doesn't play any role in the appeal process, is supporting its player from a far.

“No real comment beyond just supporting him,’’ head coach Jason Garrett said. “This is part of the process that he’s going to go through in appealing this suspension. He and his representatives will handle it as well as they can and we’ll see what happens.

“The biggest thing is to handle it the right way. We’re going to try to handle it the right way as an organization and we expect him to handle it the right way as an individual player."

A judge found Hardy guilty of domestic violence in July of 2014 and sentenced him to 18 months probation after suspending a 60-day jail sentence. 

Hardy and his reps will argue that he was found not guilty in the eyes of the law, and that NFL commissioner Roger Goodell's punishment -- 10-game suspension -- was excessive compared to what was outlined in the personal conduct policy -- two-game suspension -- at the time of the incident involving his former girlfriend.

The NFL's investigation at the time concluded that Hardy's actions "constitutes a significant act of violence in violation of the Personal Conduct Policy.”


Report: Cowboys DE Greg Hardy will miss OTA for hearing


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/26/2015) Cowboys defensive end Greg Hardy will skip the OTA Thursday for his appeal hearing, a source has told the Dallas Morning News.

Hardy has been suspended for 10 games as a result of his arrest on domestic abuse charges. The resulting two-month investigation by the NFL "determined that there was sufficient credible evidence that Hardy engaged in conduct that violated NFL policies in multiple respects and with aggravating circumstances."

The decision by the NFL concluded that Hardy used physical force against former girlfriend Nicole Holder and in four instances placed his hands around her neck with enough force to leave visible marks. It also claimed he shoved her against a wall and threw her on a futon with at least four semi-automatic rifles.

It remains to be determined if Hardy can get his suspension reduced.


Cowboys DE Greg Hardy's appeal to be heard May 28


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(5/7/2015) Cowboys defensive end Greg Hardy , who was suspended for 10 games by the NFL after his arrest on domestic abuse charges, will have an appeal hearing on May 28, per The Washington Post

Arbitrator Harold Henderson, a former NFL executive who is also involved in the Adrian Peterson appeal process, will hear the case, where the NFL Players Association is expected to claim that NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell applied the discipline retroactively under the new personal conduct policy, which was not enacted until December - seven months after Hardy was arrested.

Goodell, however, has claimed that the suspension is identical to what it would have been under the old policy for conduct detrimental to the league.

Hardy, who signed an incentive-enhanced one-year deal with Dallas in March, could lose as much as $5.8 million if the suspension stands.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/27/2015) The NFL Players Association has appealed the 10-game suspension of Cowboys defensive end Greg Hardy, per the Charlotte Observer.

The union is expected to claim that NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell applied the discipline retroactively under the new personal conduct policy, which was not enacted until December - seven months after Hardy was arrested on domestic violence charges.

Goodell, however, has claimed that the suspension is identical to what it would have been under the old policy for conduct detrimental to the league.

Hardy, who signed an incentive-enhanced one-year deal with Dallas in March, could lose as much as $5.8 million if the suspension stands.


Cowboys' Greg Hardy called 'woman beater' by teammate


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(4/24/2015) Cowboys defensive end Greg Hardy got into an altercation with teammate Davon Coleman during a voluntary offseason workout, according to a report from Yahoo! Sports

Hardy reportedly questioned Coleman's work ethic during a conditioning drill, which led Coleman to call Hardy a "woman beater."

Hardy was accused of domestic abuse and was found guilty by a North Carolina judge. On the subsequent appeal, prosecutors dropped charges against Hardy and the case was never presented in front of a jury. 

Hardy has been suspended by the NFL for 10 games due to what transpired in that case. According to FOX Sports, the confrontation between Hardy and Coleman remained verbal


NFL suspends Cowboys DE Greg Hardy 10 games without pay


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/22/2015) The NFL has suspended Cowboys defensive end Greg Hardy 10 games without pay, the league announced Wednesday.

Hardy, who only played one game last season after being placed on the Commissioner's exempt list, signed with Dallas in the offseason after the Panthers parted ways with the veteran. Hardy recently resolved his domestic violence charges out of court when a settlement was reached between he and his ex-girlfriend Nicole Holder. The league noted that Hardy violated the NFL's Personal Conduct Policy, leading to the suspension.

Commissioner Roger Goodell had stern words for Hardy in his announcement.

"You must have no further adverse involvement with law enforcement and must not commit any additional violations of league policies," Commissioner Goodell wrote. "In that respect, you should understand that another violation of this nature may result in your banishment from the NFL."

Hardy has three days to appeal the suspension and it will begin September 5, the final day of roster reductions. He will be able to participate in all preseason activities. His first week of eligibility will be Week 11 when the Cowboys face the Panthers on Thanksgiving.

"This suspension is something that we anticipated prior to Greg's signing, and we respect the Commissioner's ruling," Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said. "Our organization understands the very serious nature of this matter. We will use our resources--work closely with Greg and with the league--to ensure a positive outcome."


Attorney: Greg Hardy seeks to have domestic charges expunged


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/21/2015) Cowboys defensive end Greg Hardy has filed a petition to have domestic violence charges expunged from the record, according to his attorney per the Charlotte Observer.

The process to have the charges removed could take up to four months.

"Every day Americans who have misdemeanor charges dismissed file for expungement of the charges from their record," said Chris Fialko, Hardy's attorney.

Hardy has the charges against him dismissed in February after his accuser and ex-girlfriend Nicole Holder was unable to testify in a jury trial. Holder received a settlement from Hardy in an undisclosed amount, according to prosecutors.


NFL receives permission for photos in Greg Hardy investigation


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/1/2015) The NFL has obtained permission to access photos submitted into evidence for Cowboys defensive end Greg Hardy's domestic violence case, according to ESPN.com.

A judge in North Carolina signed off on all parties, including the NFL and NFLPA, involved in the case to have access to photos of alleged assault against Hardy's former girlfriend, without the district attorney giving up custody of the images. 

A decision from the NFL in Hardy's case has yet to be handed down, but is expected to be announced soon, according to ESPN's Ed Werder. The images in the assault case will help the league determine punishment to be handed down on Hardy, who signed a one-year deal with Dallas this offseason.

"We are trying to get as many facts as we possibly can to make the most informed decision we can so that we can uphold standards that we put forward in our personal conduct policy," NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said last week at the owners meeting. "So I expect that that will conclude sometime in the near future and we'll make a decision shortly after."

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(3/24/2015) When the Cowboys signed defensive end Greg Hardy , the team included a clause in Hardy's contract saying he couldn't receive the franchise or transition tag after the season. 

Wide receiver Dez Bryant will not receive the same type of clause, Dallas executive vice president Stephen Jones said. 

"I don't have that kind of interest in doing that," Jones said, per the Dallas Morning News. "While he may find one thing he likes about Hardy's contract, after that I don't think there's a lot for him to like about it.''
