Troubled offensive lineman Richie Incognito has checked himself into an Arizona treatment facility, according to the Sun Sentinel and NFL Network.

The Sun Sentinel reported that a source close to Incognito said the Miami Dolphins player voluntarily checked himself into the treatment facility so he can be psychologically evaluated.

NFL Network reporter Jeff Darlington tweeted that Incognito has, “accepted professional help in the wake of severe mental stress." reported this week that Incognito damaged his own Ferrari with a baseball bat in front of his Scottsdale home.

FOX 10 spoke with Incognito Thursday about the Ferrari incident. He said, "Oh, that was that was just me venting, that was self expression, that's a piece of art. The happiest day of my life was when I got that car and now the second happiest day will be when I donate it to charity."

Incognito was connected to the alleged bullying of teammate Jonathan Martin in the Wells Report commissioned by the NFL.

He will become an unrestricted free agent in March 2014.
