Greg Hardy Benched for Domestic Violence Case
The NFL is becoming synonymous with domestic violence.
Over the course of two weeks, the high-intensity contact sport has been in every news headline with highlights of domestic violence cases and player suspension.
While the NFL’s powers-that-be are in the hot seat, it seems that the league is also looking into cases that may not have received just disciplinary action. Earlier this year, North Carolina Panthers running back Greg Hardy was convicted of domestic violence against his then-girlfriend and was sentenced to 18-months probation and a 6-month jail sentence, which has since been suspended due to Hardy appealing the case.
The NFL initially suspended Hardy and benched him during Sunday’s game against the Detroit Lions; however, that decision has proven to be temporary.
According to SBnation.com, the Panthers have decided not to suspend Hardy and are “gathering information” on the incident.
Rice can no longer play, but Peterson was reinstated on Monday.
