Greg Hardy, Dallas defensive and receiver Dez Bryant, who did not play Sunday’s game, apparently got into a fervent verbal exchange on the sideline.

The alleged discussion started after Hardy went into the special-teams huddle to reprimand his teammates after they failed a decisive 100-yard kickoff return by Giants Dwayne Harris.

Danny McCray even said that Hardy “pushed me a little bit.” The player was seen confronting special-teams coordinator Rich Bisaccia, and swiping at Bisaccia’s clipboard.

When Bryant was asked about the incident, he explained “there is no issue,” and “that’s just football. People want to make nothing into something, especially when we lose. That’s just football.”

After the game, Hardy was asked by reporters about different subjects, and all he could answer was “no comments” and then he turned his back to them.

“Greg Hardy is such a passionate player,” McCray explained. “He’s all over the place. He’s in the defensive huddle, the offensive huddle, and today he made our special-teams huddle. I was a little surprised he was in there. … I didn’t realize who it was. Then I realized it was Greg. He was showing his passion that we gave up the lead and we needed to fix it.”

“It’s football. Those guys love each other, and we’ll get in the meetings tomorrow and talk it over. We’ll see what the coach says about it. [Hardy] was just trying to get us fired up.”

Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said, “To be a good football player and a good football team, you have to have passion and put it all out there. Sometimes in a game, things don’t go well and you have a response. A pro football coach and a pro football team understand that those things happen. You want the guys with passion.”

“It was coming off the football field. That happens, you encourage guys, you try to get guys excited. You try to get guys ready for the next challenge. I believe from my vantage point, that’s what he was doing.”

After owner and general manager Jerry Jones heard about the altercation he said, “As a matter of fact, I would encourage it.”

“He’s of course one of the real leaders on this team and he earns it,” Jones said of Hardy. “He earns it with the respect from all of his teammates. That’s the kind of thing that inspires. You watched him warm up out there and he was inspirational … nothing but warming up. He was ready to play. He’s just getting guys ready to play, in my view. I don’t have any issue with him being involved in motivating or pushing in any part of the football team because he plays and walks the walk.”
