10:55 AM ET 11.03 | The NFL Players Association released a statement Saturday, obtained by NFL Media's Jeff Darlington, that said no investigation has been launched into Richie Incognito or other Miami Dolphins players into the situation surrounding Jonathan Martin. Darlington reported Friday that Martin expects to be away from the team for several weeks while working through personal issues. He left the team this week after an emotional breakdown stemming from a cafeteria prank. ESPN reported Friday that Incognito was under review by the NFLPA for his alleged role in the prank that prompted Martin to leave the team. Incognito and Martin exchanged text messages Friday that Darlington relayed on NFL Network's "NFL Total Access," and Martin told Incognito: "Yeah, I'm good man. It's insane bro, but just know I don't blame you guys at all. It's just the culture around football, and the locker room got to me a little."

The NFLPA will require these boys to take online sensitivity classes.
The victim will need to file a Hurt Feelings Report so congress can get the paperwork needed.
And these players' mothers should make them hold hands for 5 minutes.

So, is there flag somewhere for taunting, or unnecessary roughness?

Yes it's a new flag for actions in the locker room. A pink flag.

Incognito probably bullied him into saying this. (It's a joke.)

helps if you want to mean it as a joke, Watson.

Incognito should be flagged for the most unimaginative arm tatoos.

So glad the NFLPA did their due diligence on this just like they said they would.


Fox - meet henhouse.

All he is missing is the mullet, and he's in Adam Sandler's next movie.

Martin is taking the high road but punk **** Incognito probably was responsible. Only things you ever hear about the guy is he's a punk, a dirty player, a real piece of crap.

Easy to imagine Incognito being at fault here.

You don't hear him defending himself either. His silence speaks volumes.

QB's in pantyhose was funny, tutu's on them gave me a nervous chuckle but these are linemen. With Choirboy in charge how long will it be before we see the first law suit for a bad hit?

Let me try that again....

He reminds me of Demetrius Underwood, a player the Vikes drafted in the first round years ago. Mentally unstable. Attempted suicide because he thought he wasn't worthy of God or something like that. Martin sounds like he has mental problems. I hope the best for him but it's obvious he isn't cut out for football.

Now Ritchie Incognito has been suspended indefinitely by the Dolphins. Guess everything wasn't "ok."

Sounds more like locker room extortion.
