Chad Johnson was arrested Saturday night in Davie, Florida for allegedly committing domestic violence, the Sun Sentinel reports.
Analysis: Uh oh. Johnson allegedly headbutted his wife in the car after she discovered a receipt for condoms. Evelyn Lozada was treated by fire-rescue personnel on the scene for forehead lacerations. HBO's Hard Knocks made it abundantly clear that Joe Philbin would not even tolerant cursing during Johnson's press conferences, so this had to put some corks in the blowholes of the powers that be for the Dolphins. Johnson has looked good in training camp despite a few drops and appeared to be a strong bet to make the 53-man roster. He had a solid opportunity to become the X receiver for the Dolphins as well, but chances are that he may be cut since he was signed for just a one-year, $970,000 deal. We wouldn't bother drafting number 85 in standard leagues and Davone Bess looks like the best option for PPR leagues. Stay tuned.
