Dolphins questioned over harassment caseThe Miami Dolphins underwent interrogation Monday by an NFL special investigator, although they had already addressed one pressing question: Would they fold on the season? Answer: No.
New York attorney Ted Wells began interviewing players regarding the harassment case involving tackle Jonathan Martin and suspended guard Richie Incognito. Wells’ visit was expected to last at least two or three days, ensuring further distractions for a team trying to keep its season from derailing.
A defeat Sunday would have accelerated the Dolphins’ recent tailspin. Instead they beat San Diego, 20-16, to improve to 5-5 and remain in the race for an AFC wild-card berth.
“It’s going to come down to a tight finish, and we have to win,” quarterback Ryan Tannehill said. “We want to win all the rest of our games.”
The Dolphins will try to do so while ensnared in the biggest scandal in franchise history. Martin left the team three weeks ago and alleges he was harassed daily by teammates, including Incognito. AP
