Report: NFL reviewing alleged domestic incident involving Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry

As he enters the final year of his contract with the Miami Dolphins, the NFL is reviewing wide receiver Jarvis Landry for an alleged domestic incident involving his girlfriend.

An NFL spokesman confirmed that Landry is being looked at under the league’s personal conduct policy. That’s the same policy under which Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott was suspended for 6 games back on Aug. 11. Elliott is currently appealing.

“The matter remains under review,” the NFL spokesman said of Landry.

According to sources, the league is in possession of video from the alleged incident.

A Fort Lauderdale police report shows that Landry was allegedly involved in a domestic violence incident with his girlfriend earlier this year.

The case was passed forward to the Broward County State Attorney’s office, who confirmed that they are investigating.

According to sources, Landry’s girlfriend was not cooperating with authorities. She also later released a statement saying she was not physically hurt and called it a false story.

Fantasy Impact: 

Landry's draft stock has taken a hit with the loss of Ryan Tannehill under the assumption that Jay Cutler would favor DeVante Parker. In 16 preseason pass attempts (two of which were negated by penalty), Cutler has targeted Parker five times and Landry three times, so within this small sample size, there is some reason for concern. The NFL's investigation is another grey cloud hanging over Landry's head. They recently handed Ezekiel Elliott a six-game suspension for an alleged domestic incident, so the league has been taking a harder stance on domestic violence after receiving a lot of criticism for only giving Ray Rice a two-game suspension a few years ago.
