Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett says he has spoken with Greg Hardy and will not issue a punishment for the defensive end’s confrontation with special teams coach Rich Bisaccia, Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports reports.
“That was just a situation that oftentimes happens on a sideline where guys are trying to encourage and inspire other guys on their team,” Garrett told 103.5 The Fan. “He was fired up and wanted to make sure that the special teams unit was going to get the job done. Sometimes those things happen. It wasn’t exactly the right time and place as we’re getting ready to go out on the field. We got that conveyed and communicated and we all moved on.”
Garrett also said that he believes a lot is being made outside the building than inside the clubhouse in regards to Hardy’s actions on Sunday.
Hardy has only played two games this year after serving a four-game suspension related to a domestic-violence incident.
After the game, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones backed his player and called Hardy a “real leader” in the locker room.
