Dolphins Tackle Jonathan Martin Leaves the Team
(NEW YORK) — Following an incident with teammates, Miami Dolphins tackle Jonathan Martin has left the team, according to ESPN.com.
The website is reporting that in the Dolphins lunch room, Martin was a victim of some ribbing from some other members of the Dolphins offensive line.
Martin has now left the team, and is now listed as doubtful for their game against the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday.
“O-Line made fun of him and he snapped,” a team source said.
According to the same source, no one is sure if or when Martin will return to the team. Backup right tackle Tyson Clabo is expected to start in place of Martin until he rejoins the club.
Martin was a second-round pick by the team back in 2012, and he’s been a starter ever since. He started every game for the Dolphins this season, which has already struggled at times with pass protection.
Since starting 3-0, the Dolphins have proceeded to lose four games in a row. The Bengals have the 17th ranked defense in the NFL.
