MIAMI, FL (CNN) —
NFL player Richie Incognito wants an expedited hearing on his suspension from the Miami Dolphins so he can return to the field soon.
Incognito filed a “noninjury grievance” against the Dolphins, who suspended him for conduct detrimental to the team earlier this month, according to the NFL Players Association.
“The grievance challenges his suspension for conduct which was alleged to have occurred while he was with the club,” the association’s statement said. “In the grievance, Incognito requests that the hearing be held on an expedited basis so that he can immediately resume playing for the team.”
The Dolphins declined CNN’s request for comment on the filing. “Our organizational policy is not to comment on grievance matters,” a team spokesman said.
