FOOTBALL: Nix comments on Hardy

Here’s what defensive coordinator Tyrone Nix had to say about Greg Hardy’s first day back.

“He moved around and made some plays. I’m excited. I hope we can get him to Saturday, so we can see how he does in a live situation. We’re going to do him like the rest of them, throw him out there and see if he can make a play.”

Nix said his pass rush has been lacking without Hardy, last year’s SEC sack leader. The Rebels have five sacks in three games this season.

“It hasn’t been as good. I think he’s special. When he’s out there he turns it up another level, and people recognize where he is. Right now I don’t know if we really have a threat or not in our pass rush game.”

Nix is generally blunt in his assessment of players. Hardy, remember, is one they were bringing along a little slower back in the spring and in early camp, trying to send a signal to him to play hard every snap in practice.
