Martin downgraded for Thursday night

By James Walker


Miami Dolphins starting right tackle Jonathan Martin has been downgraded from doubtful to out for Thursday night's game against the Cincinnati Bengals. This does not come as a surprise because Martin hasn't been with the team since a lunchroom incident occurred on Monday.

Multiple sources told ESPN.com that Martin became upset after a ribbing by teammates. He left the team and it is unknown when he will return.

Veteran right tackle Tyson Clabo will start in place of Martin. Clabo allowed eight sacks in his first six starts before being benched last week against the New England Patriots.
