Rivera said Monday that Hardy will continue to practice and attend team meetings, but he wont make a decision on if he plays until later this week. The Panthers plan to continue to gather information in what Rivera said is "a very fluid situation." Hardy was convicted July 15 of assault on a female and communicating threats, after the victim claimed he threw her down on a bed of guns and tossed her into the shower. He is appealing the ruling. Hardy played in Week 1 but Rivera deactivated him just hours before Sundays game against the Detroit Lions, and two days after the coach said Hardy would play. Rivera said Panthers owner Jerry Richardson was involved in the Hardy discussion and the team had some input from the league, but it was his decision to bench him. Hardy made $770,588.23 -- one-seventeenth of his yearly pay -- despite not playing. Panthers general manager Dave Gettleman and his staff are "doing their due diligence in terms of looking at what are options are" going forward, Rivera said. The coach indicated those options included whether to activate or deactivate Hardy on Sunday. He said the team has not considered releasing Hardy and his $13,1 million salary. The Panthers will have to decide by Week 6 how they want to handle Hardys situation. Under the NFL collective bargaining agreement, a team can only deactivate a player for non-injury reasons for a maximum of four games. The same limit is applies if the Panthers were to suspend Hardy for conduct detrimental to the team. Hardys agent Drew Rosenhaus declined to comment on the situation. On Monday, Hardy arrived at the stadium in his white Bentley shortly after noon wearing white shorts and a hooded white sweatshirt and sunglasses. He didnt acknowledge media questions as he strolled into the stadium. The decision to deactivate Hardy last Sunday was a difficult one, Rivera said. "If you play him and you win, then you dont have a conscience; and if you play him and you lose, hes a distraction," Rivera said. Riveras decision to bench Hardy came after the Minnesota Vikings deactivated Adrian Peterson following his iindictment for injuring a child. Malcolm Subban Jersey. The Vikings released a statement Monday saying that Peterson will play Sunday against New Orleans. The Panthers are trying to be careful not to be reactionary. "That is why we have to sit down and talk about these things," Rivera said. "And we did the same thing (on Sunday). We talked about a lot of things and at the end of the day I had to make a decision that I believe was in the best interest of our football team and for Greg." Hardy was disappointed when informed he wouldnt play against the Lions. Rivera said he allowed Hardy to leave the stadium and return home after notifying him of the move. "I said, Greg are you OK with this? and he said, Coach, I understand," Rivera said. Carolinas defence didnt miss a beat without Hardy, forcing three turnovers and registering four sacks in a 24-7 victory. Hardy, who tied a franchise-record with 15 sacks last season, had four tackles and a sack in the teams regular season opener at Tampa Bay. However, Hardys status changed when the Ravens released Ray Rice and the league suspended him indefinitely last week after a video surfaced of Rice punching his then-fiance. Then later in the week, Peterson was indicted on child abuse charges, adding pressure on the Panthers to deactivate Hardy. Rivera said Sunday that "the climate had changed" in the NFL and that played into his decision to bench Hardy. When asked if the Panthers got it right the first time, Rivera said, "I dont know. What is right? You do the best you can and nobody is infallible. We have to get this issue right and were trying to do the right thing." Panthers centre and team co-captain Ryan Kalil said Monday hes glad hes not had to do Riveras job the last two weeks. "I dont envy having to make those tough decisions," Kalil said. "Those are not easy decisions to make." Kalil also said hes already tired of answering questions about Hardy, but said the best thing he advises younger teammates to do is focus on getting better. "There are countless guys I can name in this league that are just really good people," Kalil said. "My hope is that at some point we can focus on some of those guys. I know these things are the topic right now, but its disappointing that it overshadows a lot of good people."
