If you’re a sports-hungry hound - yes, we just said that - you’ll likely be looking for the next batch of breaking news. As luck would have it we’ve got it. Scroll down, or watch the video above, for more.

Hardy controversy

Greg Hardy was always going to be a risky signing for the Dallas Cowboys, and judging from his actions during the loss to the New York Giants last night he’s done little to prove to people that he’s a changed man.

TV replays appear to have caught Hardy pushing special-teams coordinator Rich Bisaccia when the latter tried to get him to leave a huddle.

The footage shows Hardy clearly taking a swipe at Bisaccia’s clipboard, before squaring down and doing his best to intimidate.

Not good news at all for the Cowboys.

James runs through full practice

Lastly, it’s good news for fans of the Cleveland Cavaliers as LeBron James has trained for a full practise session for the first time since receiving an anti-inflammatory injection in his back. (Below is a reminder of what he's capable of)

The King got said shot on October 13 and has since been monitored carefully - understandably so. By turning out for a full practice however he’s improved his chances of starting for the Cavs when they take on the Chicago Bulls in their season opener this Tuesday.
