Miami Dolphins offensive guard Richie Incognito has filed a grievance against the Dolphins, challenging his "indefinite suspension." ... Under Article 43 of the NFL's collective bargaining agreement, an NFL team can only suspend their players for a maximum of four games because of conduct detrimental to the team. However, additional games can be added by the league.

Because of the suspension Incognito will lose $1.27 million in salary for the four games he misses.

The Dolphins have never defined the length of Incognito's suspension, and coach Joe Philbin said that will be determined by the NFL's investigation.

Incognito has requested an expedited hearing from a neutral arbitrator. Should the arbitrator overturn the suspension, the Dolphins would be forced to carry Incognito on the roster or release him. Should the arbitrator side with the Dolphins, Incognito's suspension will end no later than Dec. 2 after the team's Week 13 bout against the New York Jets.

NFL.com's Albert Breer had a chance to read the four-page grievance filed by Incognito, laying out exactly how Incognito is attacking the allegation from Martin, and the strategy which the tackle and his lawyer, David Cornwell, is using. The grievance introduction states, "If any conduct has been detrimental to the team, it is the manner in which Mr. Martin's representatives, including Mr. Cornwell on behalf of his client, have elected to vilify Mr. Incognito and the entire Dolphins organization in the court of public opinion."

Incognito's grievance also states that the Dolphins "failed to properly advise or warn Mr. Incognito that joking behavior amongst teammates or the use of vulgar or profane language amongst teammates, whether in-season or during the offseason, could subject him to disciplinary action."

It continues, saying, "the only detriment to the club arising out of this incident is the harm resulting from the media strategy employed by Mr. Cornwell and Mr. Martin's other representatives. ... Had Mr. Martin and Mr. Cornwell approached this complaint as a professional employment complaint rather than a media blitz, the club could have carried out an orderly, impartial investigation and determined that Mr. Martin's mental health issues are unrelated to Mr. Incognito or any other member of the Dolphins organization."
