VALLEY RANCH — Greg Hardy will make his debut with the Dallas Cowboys sooner than expected. The defensive end’s suspension was reduced from 10 games to four games.
The NFL made the announcement Friday.
It’s unclear if Hardy will fight the ruling. As it stands, he would return to the field on October 11 for the Cowboys’ Week 5 against the Patriots at AT&T Stadium.
Hardy was suspended for allegedly attacking his ex-girlfriend, Nicole Holder.
He played for the Carolina Panthers at the time of the allegations and was actually convicted. But he appealed and received a new trial. Holder refused to cooperate the second time around, and the charges were dropped.
The Cowboys signed Hardy after the was released from the Panthers earlier this year.
He’s not the only bad boy the ‘Boys are willing to risk. The latest example is rookie La’el Collins who fell into the Cowboys’ lap after his name was linked to a double homicide. He was later cleared.
Hey, don’t forget Joseph Randle who was arrested for shoplifting underwear and cologne at a Frisco mall.
With training camp set to start this month, here’s to hoping the only headlines the Cowboys make between now and then involves the signing of Dez Bryant.
