Dallas Cowboys backup defensive lineman Davon Coleman and defensive end Greg Hardy got into a heated argument following conditioning drills on Friday, but Coleman’s agent said that the story has been blown “significantly out of proportion.”
“My understanding is that Davon and Greg had a ‘verbal discussion,’ as it’s been termed to me,” Michael Loeffler said. “There was no physical altercation, no hitting, no punching, nobody stepped in. They just had a discussion following a work out. This is much ado about nothing.”
However, other reports are surfacing that paint a different picture. Yahoo Sports’ Rand Getlin said on his Twitter page, citing an unnamed source, that Coleman called Hardy “a woman beater.”
Loeffler said he had not heard anything along those lines in his discussions about the incident, and continued to downplay it.

Incidents like this happen often between players, but this has become newsworthy because it involved Hardy.
The NFL slapped Hardy with a 10-game suspension on Wednesday, as he attempts to resurrect his career after missing most of last season after domestic violence charges were brought against him for a May 2014 incident.
Hardy is appealing the suspension and is hopeful to have the number of games reduced.
Coleman, meanwhile, appeared in two games for the Cowboys last season after joining the team as an undrafted free agent out of Arizona State. He was waived in November and then re-signed to the practice squad, where he finished the season.
