    The NFL Players Association confirmed that Richie Incognito has filed a grievance against the Miami Dolphins over his suspension, NBC News reported.

    The grievance has not officially been announced.

    Incognito, a guard, was suspended by the team Nov. 3 for misconduct related to the treatment of teammate Jonathan Martin, who abruptly left the Dolphins late last month to receive help for emotional issues.

    [MI] Miami Dolphins Fan Says Offensive Line Was Embarassing Before Richie Incognito-Jonathan Martin Saga
    The Miami Dolphins prepared to play their first game Monday since Richie Incognito was suspended after it was revealed that he sent racist and threatening messages to teammate Jonathan Martin. “I was pretty embarrassed with the way the offensive line was playing already, and this doesn’t help matters any," fan Hank Kirby said, but a lot of people speculating on the controversy don’t really know what’s going on in the locker room, he added.

    The NFL is investigating whether Incognito harassed or bullied Martin. Incognito has said the conduct was all part of the normal locker room environment.

    ESPN first reported the grievance.
