(NEW YORK) — The Miami Dolphins placed offensive lineman Jonathan Martin on the non-football injury list Saturday, officially ending the 24-year-old’s season.
The move opens up Martin’s spot on the 53-man roster allowing the Dolphins to sign safety D.J. Campbell off the practice squad.
Martin left the team Oct. 28 after having a cafeteria prank played on him. He then looked for treatment for undisclosed mental health issues.
The Dolphins now must decide how much they will pay Martin for the rest of this season. Martin is signed to a four-year contract that pays a base salary of $607,466 this season. It’s not clear whether the Dolphins will continue to pay Martin his salary like they have since he left the team.
