MIAMI (AP) - A person familiar with the situation says embattled former Miami Dolphins guard Richie Incognito is receiving treatment in the wake of the team's bullying scandal.
The person commented to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Saturday because Incognito hasn't discussed the situation publicly. The person said the NFL Players Association is supporting Incognito's treatment.
Another person familiar with Incognito's situation said the veteran lineman is exhausted after being ''dragged through the mud'' in recent months.
Incognito has sent tweets in recent weeks that varied dramatically in tone. He went on a rant that quickly went viral, blasting former teammate Jonathan Martin and his representative.
