News: Hardy has been suspended by the NFL, without pay, for 10 games, for conduct detrimental to the league, NFL.com reports.
Impact: Per the report, Hardy will appeal his suspension, which ESPN.com notes is the outcome of the league's two-month investigation following the dismissal of the defensive end's domestic violence case. In the absence of a reduction in his suspension, Hardy won't be eligible to suit up in a regular season game with the Cowboys until the team's Week 12 contest against the Panthers.
