Because the Dolphins don't have enough to worry about…

According to NFL.com's Jeff Darlington, a confrontation this week between cornerback Vontae Davis and wide receiver Brandon Marshall led to Davis wanting to rip Marshall's head off.

A source told Darlington that Davis had to be restrained after Marshall started "talking (trash) and crossed the line." The altercation wasn't physical, but the incident may be related to the Dolphins' decision to leave Davis in Miami while they traveled to Kansas City to face the Chiefs Sunday.

More via Darlington:
Davis told a few people close to him that he believed he wasn't making the trip to Kansas City as a result of the altercation, but a separate team source adamantly denied the claim, adding that Davis "knows exactly" why he didn't make the trip…

The team did not elaborate on the reason for leaving Davis in Miami, only to call it "non-injury" related. Davis has been rehabilitating his hamstring after missing last week's game, but the hamstring is not responding or healing as expected.

Davis did practice in a limited role this week, and he wants to keep playing this season, despite a few people close to him advising against getting on the field too soon.
It's the latest weirdness from an organization that can't escape it. The Dolphins are 0-7, head coach Tony Sparano could be fired any day now, and the team appears more concerned in refuting silly rumors than trying to win football games.

No wonder they couldn't stop Tim Tebow.


The Kansas City Chiefs hope to continue their hot streak as they prepare to host the Miami Dolphins, who are still searching for their first win. Jason Horowitz and NFL.com's Pat Kirwan break down this game. Watch the game at 1 PM ET on CBS.
