Hardy is in his first season in Dallas after signing a one-year contract with the Cowboys in March. He has played in just two games this season after serving a four-game suspension for violating the NFL’s personal conduct policy during his time with the Carolina Panthers.
Hardy was convicted last year of assaulting his ex-girlfriend before the charges were dismissed in February. He appeared in just one game for the Panthers last season before spending the rest of the season on the exempt list.
On Sunday night, the defensive end got into an altercation with Cowboys special teams coach Rich Bisaccia. Hardy was upset with Bisaccia after the Cowboys surrendered a 100-yard kickoff return by New York's Dwayne Harris that gave the Giants the lead and eventual victory.
After the game, Jones called Hardy “a real leader” for the team. Head coach Jason Garrett said no punishment or discipline would be handed down to Hardy.
