Miami Dolphins Player Leaves Team After “Emotional Breakdown”
Miami Dolphins offensive tackle Jonathan Martin is listed as doubtful after reports read that he skipped out on the team after what is being called an “emotional breakdown.”
According to various sources, including NFL insider Jay Glazer, the offensive line was making fun of Martin, telling him that he can’t sit with them, when he then stormed out and left.
Jeff Darlington of NFL.com reported some more details on the incident saying that he is now with his family and will seek treatment for his troubles.
Jonathan Martin is now spending time with family. Team and players are mostly out of touch with his situation. My thoughts are with him.
