Dolphins WR Landry under investigation for battery

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Jarvis Landry is under investigation for battery.

The investigation of the 4-year NFL veteran stems from an incident that allegedly occurred earlier this year at Landry's Fort Lauderdale apartment.

Andy Slater was first to report the investigation.

The victim is not cooperating with law enforcement officials.  NFL Network reports the woman is the mother of Landry's child.

Police forwarded the case to the Broward County State Attorney's Office. A decision on possible charges is not expected to come this week.

With his current contract set to end after the 2017 season, Landry has been looking to receive a new deal from the Dolphins. However, the receiver says he will end negotiations with the team once the season starts.

Drafted in the second round of the 2014 NFL Draft out of LSU, Landry has been a star for the Dolphins, posting over 1,000 yards receiving the last two seasons with 14 total touchdowns.
