 MIAMI (AP) - A person familiar with the situation says the NFL Players Association will investigate possible harassment of Miami Dolphins offensive tackle Jonathan Martin by his teammates.
The person said the union wants to determine whether Martin's treatment by teammates contributed to his abrupt departure from the Dolphins. The person spoke to The Associated Press on Saturday on condition of anonymity because the Dolphins have said little about the reasons for Martin's absence.
The second-year pro from Stanford left the team Monday to receive help for emotional issues, and it's unclear whether or when he's expected back. The Dolphins are off this weekend, and the union plans to look into the matter next week.
The Dolphins have attributed Martin's absence to a non-football illness.
