Miami Dolphins guard Richie Incognito has filed a non-football injury grievance against the club, challenging his status as indefinitely suspended for conduct detrimental to the team, according to sources.

Under Article 42 of the collective bargaining agreement, the maximum a player can be suspended by a team for detrimental conduct is four weeks plus an additional game check. In this case, that would amount to $1,276,470.59.

The Dolphins have not defined the length of the suspension, which was announced in the late evening on Nov. 3 following allegations of harassment and misconduct toward teammate Jonathan Martin.

Under the labor agreement, all non-football injury grievances must be heard by a neutral arbitrator. Incognito has requested an expedited hearing.
