DAVIE, Fla. (AP) — A person familiar with the situation says Miami Dolphins guard Richie Incognito will remain on the NFL’s suspended list for the rest of the season, including the playoffs.
The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the Dolphins declined to comment on Incognito’s status. The person also says Incognito will be paid while suspended and would be in line for a playoff share.
Incognito was suspended Nov. 3 in the wake of the team’s bullying scandal. He filed a grievance Nov. 14 against the Dolphins seeking to rejoin the team, but later withdrew it.
Tackle Jonathan Martin left the Dolphins on Oct. 28 and alleges he was harassed daily by teammates, including Incognito. NFL special investigator Ted Wells has interviewed Incognito, Martin, other players and coaches and will file a report.
