Dolphins: Incognito agrees to continued suspension

Dec. 16, 2013 at 7:08 PM   |   Comments

MIAMI, Dec. 16 (UPI) -- Miami Dolphins guard Richie Incognito has agreed to remain on suspension while the NFL completes its probe of bullying accusations, the team said Monday.

"The Miami Dolphins and Richie Incognito have agreed to maintain his suspension during the ongoing NFL investigation," the team said in a brief statement.

Incognito was suspended Nov. 3 in wake of accusations of harassment, intimidation and bullying by teammate Jonathan Martin.

NFL special investigator Ted Wells is still conducting an inquiry into the club's workplace conduct as a result.

Under the terms of the NFL's collective bargaining agreement, a player can only be suspended for a total of four games, but the Dolphins' statement indicated Incognito is not choosing not to fight his continued suspension.

Martin left the team prior to a Oct. 31 game against Cincinnati.

Incognito has denied bullying Martin but has admitted using harsh and racist language.
