The pass rusher, however, was unconcerned about the injury.

"I don't get hurt,'' Hardy proclaimed via, the Dallas Morning News. "I'm invincible.''

Cowboys' executive vice president Stephen Jones said the injury wasn't serious. Prior to the injury, coach Jason Garrett told the media Hardy was going "too hard" in his first offseason in Dallas.

"To be honest with you, with Greg right from the start, he was actually going too hard,'' Garrett said. "He was going too hard in the weight room and too hard on the field early on in the offseason ..."

Hardy hasn't played since Week 1 of last season, spending the majority of 2014 on the Commissioner's Exempt List after a domestic violence incident, for which he recently had a 2015 suspension reduced to four games. Hardy's camp is still mulling appealing the suspension in court.
