Dolphins DT McDaniel receives one-game suspension

DAVIE, Fla. -- Miami Dolphins defensive tackle Tony McDaniel has been suspended one game without pay for violating the NFL's personal-conduct policy.

He'll miss next Monday's game against the New England Patriots.

McDaniel was arrested on a charge of domestic violence in February. Police said he got into an early-morning fight with his girlfriend at his home.

McDaniel has three tackles in three games for Miami, all as a substitute. He'll be eligible to return to the active roster Oct. 5, the NFL said Monday.
