Cowboys DE Greg Hardy has heated sideline exchange with Dez Bryant
Monday October 26th, 2015

Cowboys defensive end Greg Hardy confronted receiver Dez Bryant on the sideline during Sunday’s loss to the Giants.

A video posted by shows Hardy shoving teammates and coaches after Dwayne Harris’s kickoff return touchdown that gave the Giants the lead in the fourth quarter.

Television cameras showed Bryant approaching Hardy, calmly at first, but the exchange became more heated.

NBC showed a different angle of Hardy’s confrontation with Dallas special teams coach Rich Bisaccia later Sunday night.

Bisaccia told the Fort Worth Star Telegram’s​ Charean Williams that he was trying to communicate with the kickoff team, and that while the confrontation wasn’t an issue, “​it was not the right time.”​

After the game, Hardy refused to comment on the situation when questioned by reporters.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, despite admitting he had not seen the incident, said he had no problem with what happened.

Bryant, who is still recovering from a broken foot, made the trip to New York but was inactive for the game. Hardy was playing in his second game since returning from a four-game suspension for domestic violence allegations.
