It’s been a week since defensive end Greg Hardy had the appeal of his ten-game suspension heard in Washington DC, and it remains unclear when a ruling will be announced. Whenever a decision is does come down, the Dallas Cowboys claim they’re ready for whatever that decision entails regarding their biggest offseason free agent signing.

"It's tough to speculate on these type of things," said Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones, per Todd Archer of ESPN Dallas. "It's something that is not in our control. We will respect the process. We knew this was going to be a part of it. Wherever that comes down, we'll be ready to move forward."

Hardy got the suspension for conduct detrimental to the league after a two-month investigation into his domestic abuse case. His appeal is based on the idea that in suspending Hardy the 10 games, the league applied the new personal conduct policy to an incident that occurred before the policy was in place.

In the mean time, Hardy missed Wednesday’s OTA session with an illness, but Jones expects him to be ready to go on Thursday.

“I don't have any reason why he wouldn't [be at the OTA],” Jones said. “He has been one of the hardest workers out here. He had a little stomach bug and he didn't make it.”
