After a bizarre series of incidents, there were reports circulating that Richie Incognito’s Miami Dolphins teammates were beginning to get concerned about his irrational behavior. It looks like maybe their concern reached Incognito. According to TMZ, Incognito was admitted to a psychiatric care unit in Arizona late Thursday night. The report states that Incognito did not voluntarily check himself into the center. Instead, it was a petition from the Scottsdale Police Department that got Incognito admitted. Incognito recently took a baseball bat to his own car in order to “vent,” so it was clear that he was in need of some sort of help. Hopefully the psychiatric care center will provide Incognito with the care he needs, because he seemed like a man who was ready to snap and go down a dangerous path. At this point, Incognito’s NFL future is not his biggest concern. It is unlikely that he will get picked up by another team in the offseason, but the real concern is making sure Incognito is mentally stable and able to move forward without any bizarre incidents.
