The Miami Dolphins are beginning to bring some resolution to the bullying and harassment scandal that rocked the organization earlier this year. It was previously reported that the team has extended offensive guard Richie Incognito’s suspension for two more games, while they have decided to place Jonathan Martin on the non-football injury list.

By placing Martin on the non-football injury list, Martin will be out for the remainder of the season.

The decision to place Martin on the non-football injury list will also free open a spot on the 53-man roster and give the Dolphins an opportunity to sign one player who will be able to bolster the roster and help them in their battle for an AFC Wild Card berth.

Both players will continue to receive their salaries from the team.

Incognito has agreed to stay suspended while the NFL investigation continues, and Martin will be played as he stays away from the team. Incognito could eventually return to the Dolphins for their playoff push, but many expect him to be released.

It’s a good way for the organization to handle what has been an ugly situation.
