Dolphins downgrade Jonathan Martin to out

The Miami Dolphins officially ruled out offensive tackle Jonathan Martin for tonight's game against the Cincinnati Bengals, downgrading him from doubtful to out.

The Dolphins promoted Ryan Spadola from the practice squad to the active roster as he takes over Brandon Gibson's vacated roster spot. Gibson is on injured reserve.

Martin is getting treatment for emotional issues following an incident in the team cafeteria, according to FOX Sports.

Martin hasn't been with the team all week due to the situation, where being the victim of a prank from a teammate angered him enough to "smash his food tray on the ground."

Martin is officially listed as doubtful with an illness on the Dolphins' injury report. Tyson Clabo will start in his place.

NFL Network reported that Martin is with his family since the incident and had an "emotional breakdown."

Per the report, Martin sought treatment at a local hospital before leaving and is now with his family.
