Miami Dolphins offensive tackle Jonathan Martin, 24, is reportedly in treatment for post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and depression from the hazing he received from teammate Richie Incognito.
Radar Online reported the details on Thursday:
“It’s depression and PTSD… which is directly related to the bullying he endured by Richie and other teammates,” a source close to the situation told Radar.
“Jonathan wants to play football again, but he absolutely can’t play for the Miami Dolphins. That said, football isn’t the focus right now. It’s receiving treatment and moving forward.”
The insider said Martin “hates all of the publicity this has gotten,” but added that when the time is right, “Jonathan will speak out about what really happened” inside the Dolphins locker room.
Incognito was suspended indefinitely when the alleged harassment was reported. Many of Incognito’s teammates have come to his defense. Dolphins starting left tackle Bryan McKinnie said the situation is blown out of proportion and thinks Martin could have handled it differently.
