Jonathan Martin Checked Himself Into Hospital After Leaving Dolphins


Once again the story has so many layers it hard to say what is really going on. It does appear that Martin was in such distress he decided he needed to go to the hospital.

Miami Dolphins offensive tackle Jonathan Martin recently checked himself into a South Florida hospital to be treated for emotional distress that led the second-year player to leave the team last week, league sources told ESPN.

Martin was visited at the hospital by Dolphins coach Joe Philbin, and the organization arranged for his parents to travel to South Florida, the sources said.

Martin’s hospital stay was brief before he returned to California with his parents, according to sources.

The specific treatment of Martin’s emotional condition was not disclosed, but sources say it was related to his belief that he had been targeted during a sustained level of harassment from teammates, including suspended guard Richie Incognito.

The report goes on to say that Martin didn’t inform Philbin of the harassment at the time of Philbin’s visit.  What I want to know is what exactly did Martin tell him was the problem?

Did he make up something or does Philbin know more than he is letting on?
