Everyone in this organization is held to high standards of conduct and professionalism,” Dolphins coach Joe Philbin said in a statement. “Based on my conversations with Derrick and the information we have thus far, Derrick will be placed on Indefinite Club Suspension. When we have completed all of the necessary diligence, we will make a final determination on his discipline.”
