Dallas Cowboys defensive end Greg Hardy has been suspended 10 games for the 2015 season due to his domestic violence incident involving his girlfriend, Nicole Holder.
His Cowboys stint has continued to get off to a rocky start, as he was reportedly involved in a verbal fight with one of his teammates.
Hardy had signed a one-year, $11 million contract with the Cowboys as the team looks to upgrade its pass rush. Hardy came up with 15 sacks in the 2013 season for the Carolina Panthers.
He missed the entire 2014 season though after Week 1 due to being deactivated for his domestic violence allegations.
Hardy is not eligible to return until the Cowboys’ Thanksgiving game against the Panthers, which is coincidentally Hardy’s former team.
Despite his lengthy suspension, Hardy is still attempting to stay in shape and practicing with the team.
Hardy’s confrontation with Davon Coleman, another Cowboys defensive lineman, got so heated that teammates had to intervene before things became ugly.
Coleman had reportedly brought up Hardy’s domestic violence incident during their argument and called Hardy a “woman beater,” which angered Hardy even more.
Although Hardy cannot take the field for a long time, he can practice in offseason programs until his suspension goes into effect on Sept. 5.
