Jonathan Martin leaves Dolphins to seek help after “breakdown.”
Miami Dolphins tackle Jonathan Martin has left the team indefinitely after what a teammate described as an “emotional breakdown.”
NFL Media’s Jeff Darlington reported that Martin sought help help via a local hospital and his family after being the victim of a prank at the Dolphins’ team cafeteria. The details of the prank are unknown, but Darlington reported that Martin became so angry he smashed his food tray to the ground. Sounds like a pretty serious prank for a situation this bizarre to arise from it.
Martin will not be with the team when they take on the red-hot (no Andy Dalton pun intended) Cincinnati Bengals Thursday night. Tyson Clabo is expected to start in his place.
