The best part about the ongoing discussion regarding the final play in the Patriots-Panthers game? It has provided a brief respite from the Dolphins situation.
But the situation continues to percolate in South Florida. Soon, one aspect of the drama will hit full boil.
The status of the multi-pronged case has been aptly summarized by Jeff Darlington of NFL Network, via Twitter.
For starters, investigator Ted Wells remains in Miami, and the thinking is that he’ll be there for several more days. Wells already has met with G.M. Jeff Ireland, in a session that according to Darlington lasted more than two hours.
Come Thursday, the grievance hearing regarding guard Richie Incognito’s ongoing suspension will commence. Per Darlington, the grievance hearing is expected to last several days.
All of this means that, as the Dolphins prepare to host the Panthers, the Miami players and coaches and staff have plenty of other things taking up their time. Which will make it even harder to snap Carolina’s six-game winning streak.
