|Police say Arizona Cardinals running back Jonathan Dwyer head-butted his wife after she refused his sexual advances, and broke her nose. The details surfaced Thursday in a law enforcement report a day after Dwyer was arrested on aggravated assault charges and deactivated from all team activities. He spent a night in jail and was released early Thursday.
Analysis: The altercation occurred on July 21 at their Phoenix residence. The next day, another dispute between the couple turned violent when Dwyer punched his wife in the face and struck his 17-month-old son in the stomach with a shoe, according to the report.

|The Carolina Panthers have removed Hardy from the team's active roster until the Pro Bowl defensive end's domestic violence case is resolved.

Analysis: Carolina general manager Dave Gettleman said Hardy will continue to be paid, is allowed to be at the team facility but will not practice. Hardy was convicted July 15 of assault on a female and communicating threats after the victim claimed the 6-foot-4, 275-pound player threw her in the bathtub and onto a sofa covered with guns before threatening to kill her. Hardy is appealing the ruling and a jury trial is set for Nov. 17.
|9/17/2014||Wes Welker, WR|
