Richie Incognito: 'I'm just trying to weather the storm'

Richie Incognito is in the eye of the hurricane right now.

The Miami Dolphins guard was suspended indefinitely Sunday for his behavior toward teammate Jonathan Martin, the offensive tackle who suffered an emotional breakdown at the team complex last week. The fallout has become a huge NFL story, and a national one as well.

A local news affiliate in Fort Lauderdale caught up with Incognito on Tuesday as he left a doctor's appointment. His clipped comments were his first since being suspended.

"You know what, I'm just trying to weather the storm right now," Incognito told WSVN-TV. "This will pass."

NFL Media's Albert Breer obtained a transcript of a voice mail that Incognito left Martin, directing threats and a racial slur toward Martin. The NFL and the Dolphins have heard the voice mail.

The issue has led to a varietyof opinions from around the league while opening up a larger discussion about hazing and bully culture in the NFL.

We surmise Incognito has a strong opinion on the matter. He's chosen not to share it at this time.
