Dolphins tackle Jonathan Martin won’t be rejoining the team for Thursday night’s game against the Bengals.
Martin has reportedly “gone AWOL” after an incident at the team’s facility this week and was originally listed as doubtful for the matchup with Cincinnati, but the team announced on Thursday afternoon that he’s out. That doesn’t come as much of a surprise given what apparently went down and it means Tyson Clabo will return to the starting lineup at right tackle.
The Dolphins also promoted wide receiver Ryan Spadola from the practice squad on Thursday. Spadola takes the roster spot left open by Brandon Gibson’s season-ending knee injury.
Spadola made the Jets as an undrafted free agent this summer and played in three games this season before being waived.
