When Greg Hardy returned to action this season after serving his four-game suspension, he was anything but apologetic. And last Sunday’s sideline outburst proved he hasn’t been too remorseful since then.
But it appears recent developments finally have made the Dallas Cowboys defensive end take responsibility for his actions.
One day after Deadspin released graphic photos of the bruises suffered by Hardy’s ex-girlfriend in a May 2014 incident, Hardy took to Twitter to issue an apology.
Hardy doesn’t specify exactly what he’s expressing regret for, but he has plenty of options to choose from. The 27-year-old was arrested on charges of domestic violence in 2014 and accused of attacking and threatening to kill Nicole Holder. He was convicted of those charges, but they were dropped in February 2015 when Holder stopped cooperating with authorities.
NFL investigators reportedly asked Hardy about the photos, which show Holder’s injuries from the incident. Here was his response, according to NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport:
Barring any unforeseen developments, Hardy will play in Dallas’ Sunday night matchup with the Philadelphia Eagles.
