Dallas Cowboys defensive end Greg Hardy continues to find his way into headlines for non-football reasons.

On Sunday, he and teammate DeMarcus Lawrence got into a scrap on the sideline and had to be separated during the Cowboys’ 10-6 loss to Tampa Bay, according to Kristi Scales, a reporter for the Cowboys’ Radio Network. Later, she added that “all is good” and it was “just a little dust-up.”

Also on Sunday, Mike Garafolo of Fox Sports reported that Hardy was late to work last week and missed meetings.

There’s no word whether the Cowboys have had yet another of those meetings with Hardy to discuss their issues with him, but those have become a staple of late. Hardy had a public dust-up with Dez Bryant on the sideline earlier this year and made controversial comments about Tom Brady’s wife Gisele Bundchen. When photos of a domestic violence incident he was involved in became public, he tweeted “innocent until proven guilty,” forgetting that in a trial by a judge, he had been found guilty. He requested a jury trial and reached a settlement with the victim in the interim. His record was expunged last week.
