*Dallas Cowboys defensive end Greg Hardy got into a verbal altercation during conditioning drills on Friday, putting him right back in the headlines after his announced 10-game suspension this week for domestic violence.
According to Fox Sports, the spat started when Hardy began questioning defensive tackle Davon Coleman’s effort during the drills. Coleman allegedly clapped back with a dig at Hardy’s domestic violence issues.
“[Coleman] called him a woman beater,” the source said.
The argument got so heated that they had to be separated by teammates, according to FOX Sports.
When asked about the incident at an APSE meeting Friday, commissioner Roger Goodell said he was not aware of the incident and would get more information before commenting.
Hardy was suspended 10 games earlier this week for violating the league’s personal conduct policy.
In July 2014, he was found guilty of assaulting a former girlfriend, Nicole Holder, and threatening to kill her, and he received a 60-day suspended sentence and 18 months’ probation on misdemeanor charges. He appealed the judge’s ruling in favor of a jury trial, and the case was dismissed in February when Holder chose not to cooperate with authorities after receiving a settlement from Hardy.
Hardy signed a one-year deal with the Cowboys last month. His suspension doesn’t take effect until Sept. 5, allowing him to take part in the Cowboys’ offseason program.
