In Sunday’s one-liners, we mentioned that the Dolphins took a visit to the Lincoln Memorial during their road trip to Washington this weekend.
That monument honors the man who was in the White House during the Civil War and the visit came after a week that saw the Dolphins dealing with squabbling within their borders. Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports that receiver Jarvis Landry and running back LaMike James apologized to their teammates on Thursday for fighting with each other on Wednesday.
The altercation happened during a special teams meeting when something Landry said upset James, who reacted physically although no “personal attacks” were reportedly involved. Per Jackson, “pushing and shoving” followed before the two players were separated.
In addition to the apology to the team at large for creating a distraction, Jackson reports that Landry apologized to James and the team hasn’t taken any action against either player.
