Miami's Martin leaves team after 'emotional breakdown'
Jonathan Martin leaves Dolphins after 'breakdown'

An unusual situation is unfolding in Miami, where Dolphins right tackle Jonathan Martin has left the team after suffering an "emotional breakdown" this week.

NFL Media's Jeff Darlington reported Wednesday that Martin is currently seeking help with his family after an incident at the team's cafeteria, according to team sources.

Martin is listed on the team's injury report with an illness, and is doubtful to play Thursday against the Cincinnati Bengals. Fox NFL insider Jay Glazer reported that Martin was the victim of a prank at the cafeteria, becoming enraged enough to "smash his food tray on the ground."

The second-year pro has not been with the team since that time. Darlington reports that Martin immediately sought treatment at a local hospital. He has since left the hospital and is now spending time with his family, according to team sources.

Martin opened the season as the Dolphins' replacement for Jake Long at left tackle. He was moved to right tackle when the team acquired Bryant McKinnie via trade last week. Tyson Clabo is expected to start in Martin's place on Thursday.

Yeah. Stress and anxiety can be a really bad thing. I wonder if this has to do with learning a new position or getting "demoted" from left tackle, or if it's a locker room problem that's been brewing for a while.

FOX Sports' Jay Glazer reports Dolphins RT Jonathan Martin has "gone AWOL from the team the last couple days."
Per Glazer, Martin had an incident in the team cafeteria this week when teammates jokingly said they wouldn't sit at a table with him. Martin reportedly "flipped out, smashed a food tray on the ground, took off, and they haven’t seen him since." Glazer adds that Martin has entered a treatment facility, though it's unclear what kind of treatment he's seeking. The Dolphins have listed him as doubtful for Thursday night against the Bengals. Tyson Clabo has been reinserted into the lineup at right tackle. It's unclear how long Martin will be away. The Miami offensive line is in shambles.
