NFL Reduces Greg Hardy’s Suspension to 4 Games
The NFL has come to a decision in the suspension of Dallas Cowboys defensive lineman Greg Hardy. The NFL has reduced his suspension of 10 games down to 4 games. Originally the NFL had suspended Hardy in April for what it deemed to be multiple violations of the league's personal conduct policy during an incident with his ex-girlfriend in the spring of 2014. The charges were later dropped when is ex-girlfriend failed to appear in court.
The NFL Players Association believed NFL Commissioner Goodell used the personal conduct policy to penalize Hardy even though the incident happened before the policy was in place. This is probably the reason the suspension was reduced by 6 games.
Hardy will be able to take part in training camp and preseason games. His 4 game suspension will begin Sept. 5.
