Description: ESPN's Adam Schefter reports, via Twitter, that the Seahawks worked out Hardy on Tuesday.
Insight: Hardy did not show much in his time in Buffalo, but his size (6'5") could allow him to get another chance. (RapidDraft.com)
 
9/4/2010 11:03:00 PM
Description: Hardy was finally released by the Bills on Saturday.
Insight: The biggest news the 2008 second-rounder ever made in Buffalo was when he got arrested for punching his father before ever playing an NFL game. His 6-5, 220-pound size might help Hardy get another shot, but fantasy owners should ignore until he provides reason for us to pay attention. (RapidDraft.com)
 
8/27/2010 7:04:00 PM
Description: Coach Chan Gailey said he expects James Hardy (foot) to play against the Bengals on Saturday.
Insight: The Bills aren?t considering Hardy to be a big part of their future plans. He?s not a very strong fantasy bet at the moment. (RapidDraft.com)
 
8/18/2010 7:11:00 PM
Description: Bills WR James Hardy (undisclosed) has been ruled out for the team's second preseason game.
Insight: Folks may start referring to draft busts as ?Hardys? in the future. He may not even see much time in Buffalo?s sub-standard receiving corps. (RapidDraft.com)

Description: An undisclosed injury is expected to keep Bills WR James Hardy out for the team's second preseason game. SOURCE: BUFFALO NEWS
Insight: Hardy has been out since August 10. At this point, it would be a complete shock to see him make the final roster this year.
 
6/26/2010 3:05:00 PM
Description: Bills WR James Hardy looked out of shape on the practice field at Buffalo's recent round of minicamps.
Insight: Hardy is blowing a golden opportunity to make a big impression in receiver-starved Buffalo. While it's true that he is coming off sports hernia surgery, he has done nothing in his career thus far to distinguish himself. (SportsBuff.com)
 
5/31/2010 7:14:00 PM
Description: James Hardy is expected to win the Bills' No. 2 receiver competition, according to the Buffalo News.
Insight: He probably does have the most talent of any of the receivers on the roster besides Lee Evans, but Hardy can't seem to get out of his own way. Him ending up on the cut list is as likely a scenario as being handed the number two wideout job. (SportsBuff.com)
 
5/25/2010 8:33:00 PM
Description: James Hardy saw the bulk of the reps as the starter opposite Lee Evans when the Bills opened OTAs on Tuesday.
Insight: Though talented, Hardy is also injury prone and has been unable to perform consistently as a pro. Expect Steve Johnson to start opposite Evans at some point during the season. (sportsBuff.com)
 
5/9/2010 10:43:00 PM
Description: Bills WR James Hardy was a no-show for the team's most recent minicamp.
Insight: Hardy has not impressed anyone thus far as a pro, so, whatever the issue he's dealing with, it would be in his best interests to start showing up. He's on the roster bubble, even on receiver-poor team like the Bills. (SportsBuff.com)
 
4/24/2010 4:52:00 PM
Description: Bills selected UConn WR Marcus Easley with the No. 107 overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft.
Insight: Hardy's fantasy value, already on the wane, takes another hit with this news. He is a candidate to be cut this offseason. (sportsBuff.com)
 
4/16/2010 8:20:00 PM
Description: Bills GM Buddy Nix said he'd "like to find out about" WRs James Hardy and Steve Johnson as possibilities to start opposite Lee Evans this year.
Insight: Hardy has a lot of talent, but his injury history is making him look like a definite "bust" candidate. Johnson has shown a lot more on the field. (sportsBuff.com)
 
12/28/2009 8:07:00 AM
Description: Hardy had one catch for nine yards on Sunday against the Falcons.
Insight: Hardy made his season debut and recorded his first catch of the season. He has little fantasy value in Week 17. (SportsBuff.com)
 
11/12/2009 7:58:00 AM
Description: Hardy has been added to the Bills' 53-man roster as he has recovered from surgery on his left knee.
Insight: Hardy will be a depth receiver and has little fantasy value at the moment. (SportsBuff.com)
 
Out9/10/2009 1:01:00 PM
Description: Hardy was placed on the PUP list and will ineligible to play until at least Week 7.
Insight: Talented though he may be, Hardy still has an uphill climb in the Buffalo receiving ranks to face. His inability to stay on the field is not helping him. (SportsBuff.com)
 
Questionable9/3/2009 12:13:00 PM
Description: Hardy (left knee) is still on the PUP list, just a few days before the Bills need to determine their 53-man roster. (BuffaloBills.com)
Insight: Hardy seems unlikely to be a fantasy factor this season, but is still someone to keep an eye on in keeper leagues. (SportsBuff.com)
 
Cold7/22/2009 12:29:00 AM
Description: The Buffalo News reports that Hardy could open the season on the physically unable to perform list, which would force him out of at least the first six games.
Insight: Even if he doesn't start the season inactive, Hardy is buried on the depth chart. He should not turn up on any fantasy radar outside of deep dynasty leagues. (SportsBuff.com)
 
Out3/28/2009 12:49:00 AM
Description: The Bills' official site reports that Hardy is ahead of schedule in his return from a torn ACL and expects to be back before the end of camp.
Insight: Hardy made more of an impact in his rookie season with his gun charges than he did on the field. The addition of Terrell Owens should only make it harder for him to get looks this year. Fantasy owners shouldn't look for much from Hardy in 2009. (SportsBuff.com)
 
Out12/17/2008 7:15:00 PM
Description: Hardy is out for the season with a torn ACL in his left knee.
Insight: Hardy suffered the injury against the Jets in Week 15. (SportsBuff.com)

Description: The Democrat and Chronicle reports that seventh-round pick Steve Johnson has passed James Hardy on the depth chart, joining the team's three-receiver set to open last Monday night's game with Cleveland. Bills receivers coach Tyke Tolbert has this to say about Johnson: ?He has a good grasp overall of what we?re trying to do and we think he gives us the best chance of going in there and making some plays.? (SportsBuff.com)
Insight:
 
9/26/2008 8:13:00 PM
Description: The thumb injury that is expected to sideline Roscoe Parrish for the next month or so could free up a few passes to potentially go Hardy's way. Parrish caught three balls in two of the season's first three games.
Insight: It's not a lot of extra work to go to Hardy, but his value for this season lies almost entirely in the possibility of him catching a touchdown pass. The absence of the speedy Parrish hurts the team's ability to score from long distances a little bit, which could also create a couple of extra red-zone chances. (SportsBuff.com)
