Report: Incognito admitted to psychiatric care unit

(SportsNetwork.com) - Richie Incognito has reportedly been admitted to a psychiatric care unit in Arizona.

According to TMZ Sports, the offensive lineman at the center of the Miami Dolphins' bullying scandal checked into a facility on Thursday night.

Incognito was suspended by the Dolphins last November and didn't play the rest of the season after fellow offensive lineman Jonathan Martin left the team before a Week 9 game against Cincinnati and later claimed he had been bullied and harassed by teammates.

The results of an investigation were released earlier this month and the 144- page report from Ted Wells concluded that the harassment was a contributing factor in Martin's decision to leave the team, but added that it was not intended to drive him away or cause lasting emotional injury.

Incognito had strong words for Wells via Twitter after the report was issued, then apologized to Wells, Dolphins owner Stephen Ross and Martin a few days later.

Earlier this week it was reported by TMZ Sports that Incognito smashed his own Ferrari with a baseball bat.
