Dolphins bullying report expected in 1-2 weeks

Winslow Townson-USA TODAY Sports

After reports surfaced this week that the Ted Wells report into the bullying allegations around the Miami Dolphins would be released on Thursday, a representative for Wells corrected those rumors yesterday. According to the statement, the report is still 1-2 weeks away.

The NFL's investigation into the bullying allegations surrounding the Miami Dolphins started nearly two-and-a-half months ago, and now it appears it will take another week or two until the final report is issued. After reports had surfaced earlier this week that the investigation, completed by attorney Ted Wells, would be completed and submitted to the league office today, a representative of Wells' spoke to NFL.com's Ian Rapoport. He explained that the report would likely not be issued until the end of next week, or possibly early the following week.

The situation started on October 28, when tackle Jonathan Martin abruptly left the team. On November 3, he then alleged player misconduct, bullying, and hazing against players in the Miami locker room, and specifically against guard Richie Incognito. The Dolphins then suspended Incognito for the remainder of the season, paying him for six of the eight games he missed.

Miami administratively lifted the suspension earlier this week.

Last week, both Martin and Incognito took to the press to air a portion of their side of the situation. Martin sat down with former NFL coach Tony Dungy in an interview, his first public comments since leaving the team. Incognito then replied with a statement from his lawyer, categorically denying several of Martin's examples of misconduct and pointing to Martin's own behavior while he was with Miami. USA Today also released over 1,000 text messages from between the two players.
