DAVIE, Fla. (AP) -- The NFL's special investigator looking into the Miami Dolphins' harassment case says the team has been cooperative in preparing for his visit this week.
New York attorney Ted Wells released a statement Monday, his first public comments about the investigation. He plans to interview the Dolphins beginning Monday.
Tackle Jonathan Martin left the team three weeks ago and alleges he was harassed daily by teammates, including guard Richie Incognito, who has been suspended. Martin spent nearly seven hours with Wells on Friday in New York.
The interviews this week may last several days, ensuring further distractions for a team trying to keep its season from derailing. The Dolphins beat San Diego 20-16 Sunday to go to 5-5.
