DAVIE, Fla. - Miami Dolphins tackle Jonathan Martin will meet late next week in Los Angeles with the NFL's special investigator to discuss allegations in the team's harassment scandal, a person familiar with the situation said Friday.

The person confirmed the upcoming meeting to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the league and team haven't announced the details of the investigation.

Meeting with Martin will be Ted Wells, a senior partner in a New York law firm with experience in sports cases. Wells was appointed Wednesday by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell to investigate possible misconduct in the Dolphins' workplace and prepare a report that will be made public.

Dolphins guard Richie Incognito was suspended in the wake of allegations by Martin, who is with his family in California to undergo counseling for emotional issues. Wells is investigating whether Incognito harassed or bullied Martin, and whether their teammates and the organization mishandled the matter.

Incognito also arrived in Los Angeles on Friday on a flight from Miami, WPLG-TV in Miami reported. His agent, David Dunn, is based in Southern California.
