Cowboys DE Greg Hardy will not appeal four-game suspension

Despite some speculation, Greg Hardy will not appeal his four-game suspension.

The Dallas Cowboys defensive end released a statement on Thursday regarding the matter:

*While I am terribly disappointed to miss the first four games of this season, I am absolutely determined that my issue is not going to be a distraction for the Cowboys. *

I have enormous affection and respect for everyone here, and having seen the impact a court case can have on an NFL organization, I believe it is in the team's best interest for me to announce that I will not pursue any further litigation.

Everything I do from this point on will be designed to bring glory and pride to my family, their family and this team.

Hardy, who signed a one-year deal with the Cowboys this offseason, was suspended in July for violating the league's personal conduct policy.
