Dolphins’ Martin ineligible to return this season (Reuters)

Saturday, November 30th, 2013
(Reuters) - Miami Dolphins' lineman Jonathan Martin, who left the team after saying he was the subject of bullying, will be ineligible to play again this season after being placed on the non-football illness list by the team on Saturday. The Dolphins do not have to pay the tackle while he is on the list, but the National Football League team plans to honor his salary, NFL.com reported. Martin, a second-round draft pick in 2012 who started all 16 games last year and the first seven games this season, left the team at the end of October suffering from emotional distress. Fellow lineman Richie Incognito, who was singled out by Martin, has been suspended indefinitely by the Dolphins.

But one bad week like he had against Dallas and the Eagles may need some help to win the division. Let's take a look at how the Birds match up with the Cards, who've won four straight, before we delve into how important this game actually is for the Eagles' hopes of making the playoffs.

Nov 30 (The Sports Xchange) - The Miami Dolphins placed offensive tackle Jonathan Martin on the non-football illness list, meaning he is not eligible to return this season.

Campbell from the practice squad to take Martin's spot on the 53-man roster. Miami can pay as little as none or all of his remaining $607,466 base salary for this season.
