The NFL has reduced the suspension of Dallas Cowboys pass rusher Greg Hardy, the league announced Friday.
Harold Henderson's decision on the Greg Hardy appeal is in. Suspension upheld...reduced from 10 to 4 games.— Greg Aiello (@gregaiello) July 10, 2015
Hardy was originally notified on April 22 that he was suspended without pay for the team’s first 10 games of the 2015 regular season for conduct detrimental to the league in violation of the NFL Constitution and By-Laws, the NFL Player Contract, and the NFL Personal Conduct Policy.
In a letter from Commissioner Roger Goodell, Hardy was informed that an extensive two-month NFL investigation following the dismissal of his case in North Carolina state court determined that there was sufficient credible evidence that Hardy engaged in conduct that violated NFL policies in multiple respects and with aggravating circumstances.
Hardy was apart of the Carolina Panthers when the charges came down. He was released by the team.
The Cowboys signed Hardy while he was under investigation.
