DAVIE (CBSMiami) – Troubled Miami Dolphins offensive tackle Jonathan Martin has been downgraded to out for Thursday night’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Martin left the team on Monday night after an alleged prank by a teammate and hasn’t been back with the squad since. Multiple reports have stated Martin had an emotional breakdown and is not seeking treatment.READ MORE: Storms Causing Flight Delays At South Florida Airports
The Dolphins, as is club policy, have refused to address Martin’s status. Until the first reports of the breakdown surfaced Wednesday night, Martin was listed as “doubtful” with an “illness” on the team’s injury report.READ MORE: COVID In Florida: 5,520 New Cases, 9 Deaths Reported On Sunday

With Martin out, the Fins are likely to start Tyson Clabo at right tackle. Clabo has struggled all season with giving up sacks after spending the last several years in Atlanta as a solid starting tackle.
