Richie Incognito’s nearly four-month suspension was lifted Tuesday — but he is no closer to returning to the Miami Dolphins.

Word came on an otherwise quiet Tuesday afternoon, but context tells the true story: It was an administrative move that had long been planned.

Incognito is in the final year of his contract, and is set to become a free agent in March. He is not expected to return.

The news comes in the same week that Ted Wells is expected to finally make his independent review of the team’s workplace conduct scandal public. Jonathan Martin, like Incognito, missed most of the season's second half, and is likewise expected to play elsewhere in 2014.
