NFL Notes: Greg Hardy, Bears, Colts, Saints, & Steelers

Greg Hardy

  • Ian Rapoport reports that Greg Hardy‘s status with the Cowboys remains unchanged, even after photos emerged showing the injuries sustained by his former girl friend in the incident that led to him being suspended at the start of the season.
  • According to Rapoport, Hardy told NFL investigators that he was not responsible for Holder’s injuries, and instead claimed that she attacked him and that he protected himself.
  • Rapoport adds that Hardy maintained she was drunk and fell down during the incident.
  • The Cowboys reportedly were not allowed to view the photo evidence of Holder before they signed him to a contract.

Hardy posted an apology of sorts on his Twitter account Saturday night.

Bears

  • John Mullin of CSN Chicago writes that the odds of OC Adam Gase departing for a new job in 2016 continue to increase, and he could be a sought after head-coaching candidate next year.

Colts

  • Jason La Canfora reports that there was “solid support” throughout the Colts’ organization to make a change at play-caller, given the regression of quarterback Andrew Luck.
  • In fact, La Canfora mentions that ownership and the front office were also on board to replace OC Pep Hamilton and see what Rob Chudzinski can do to bring a more balanced and efficient offense approach.
  • Chudzinski is expected to try to get RB Frank Gore more involved moving forward.
  • Interestingly enough, La Canfora adds that it’s unlikely ownership would make a short-term head coaching change in the near future, even with their Week 10 bye coming up.

Saints

  • Ian Rapoport reports that Saints backup QB Luke McCown (lower back) is seeing a specialist Monday and his 2016 season is in doubt.
  • Rapoport adds that McCown could potentially play through his back injury, but it’s more likely that this is season-ending.

Steelers

  • Steelers RB Le’Veon Bell underwent his season-ending knee surgery Friday to repair his MCL and PCL, according to Jason La Canfora.
  • However, Bell’s ACL did not need attention and he’s on target for September return next year.
