DAVIE, Fla. (AP) — The latest allegations from tackle Jonathan Martin have gone mostly unanswered by the Miami Dolphins, weary of fending off questions about the harassment case that has rocked the franchise.

Martin left the team last week and alleges he was harassed by teammates, including guard Richie Incognito, who has been suspended. That leaves Miami (4-4) short-handed for Monday night's game at Tampa Bay (0-8), but the larger issue is how the Dolphins will play after generating so much negative national news.

Players on Saturday were willing to say little about the bullying scandal, which Martin will discuss late next week with a special investigator hired by the NFL. The league will determine whether the Dolphins organization mishandled the situation.
