Dez Bryant, Greg Hardy get into heated argument on Cowboys’ sideline (Video)
Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant may still be at least a week away from a return to the field, but he’s still making for damned sure that the team feels his presence.
The FOX broadcast of the Cowboys-Giants game on Sunday captured Bryant and teammate Greg Hardy yelling at each other on the sideline during the fourth quarter. The Giants had just re-taken the lead on a 100-yard kickoff return by Dwayne Harris immediately after the Cowboys had tied the game on 25-yard touchdown pass by Matt Cassel to Devin Street.
Tempers were running high all game and when Dallas conceded the lead again in the fourth quarter on what wound up being the decisive score, things reached a boiling point as Bryant and Hardy proceed to go nuclear on one another.
Apparently, the argument stemmed from when Hardy, who was not involved in the play, began chastising the Cowboys’ special teams unit for giving up the return touchdown and started shoving teammates.

With Bryant and Hardy being the most volatile personalities on the roster, then combine that with the frustrations of seeing the game slip away in the fourth quarter like that, and it’s no surprise that this one turned out like it did.
Bryant, who originally looked like he would be out on the field against the Giants this week, but ultimately sat out after reportedly feeling discomfort in his foot, is certainly not letting his injury get in the way of him firing up his teammates, for better or for worse. If you somehow forgot the video of Bryant prancing around the locker room like the Energizer Bunny on his broken foot to celebrate a Dallas victory the last time these two teams met, you can watch it here.
With the team now at 2-4 on the year, we’re in full-on crisis mode in Dallas now. Bryant’s eventual return will help a great deal, but even he probably won’t be able to drag Matt Cassel’s bullet-riddled corpse up the field for 60 minutes. And seeing as Tony Romo is still out with a broken clavicle, it looks like a full implosion is much more likely to happen for the Cowboys before a return to relevancy does.
