Bengals vs. Dolphins 2013 inactives: Jonathan Martin and Rey Maualuga out

Robert Mayer-USA TODAY Sports

Jonathan Martin will not play tonight, which was expected given his mid-week absence from the team.

The Miami Dolphins will be without right tackle Jonathan Martin against a potent Cincinnati Bengals defensive line after it was revealed Martin had an "emotional breakdown," and will be away from the team while he recovers. Cincinnati enters the week relatively healthy, but will be miss Rey Maualuga, who is recovering from a concussion and MCL sprain.

Ryan Tannehill has been one of the most pressured quarterbacks in the NFL and this won't be any easier with Martin out of Thursday's game. It's unclear how long he will be away from the team as he's treated for emotional issues, but the Dolphins become a very vulnerable team despite Martin's struggles in 2013. Tyson Clabo will start, but the veteran lineman has been inconsistent this season.

The Cincinnati Bengals defense will lack one of its veterans, as Maualuga is at least one week away from returning after spraining his MCL against the New York Jets. He took a big hit that left him with a concussion and sprained his ligament as he was bent over following the tackle.
