Cowboys defensive end Greg Hardy has had quite the week to say the least. During Sunday’s loss to the New York Giants, Hardy got into two separate incidents: one with injured Cowboys’ wide receiver Dez Bryant, and another with Cowboys’ special teams coordinator Rich Bisaccia. This is a horrible look for Hardy for a number of reasons – namely because his off-the-field issues suggest that he has issues controlling his temper – but don’t worry! It’s all good, because Dallas owner Jerry Jones said that Hardy’s a leader, so he’s obviously got it all together, right?
Well…about that. NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport reported that Hardy missed practice on Thursday and didn’t tell anyone where he was while the team was looking for him.
NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported on Monday’s edition of Around The NFL that Hardy did not participate in practice on Thursday morning and failed to reach out to the team, prompting Cowboys officials to make a series of calls to find out why their defensive end was not at the team facility.
