Dolphins' Jarvis Landry under investigation for possible battery

— -- Miami Dolphins?star wide receiver Jarvis Landry is under police investigation for possible battery charges stemming from an incident with his girlfriend that took place earlier this year.

The Fort Lauderdale Police Department has presented its investigation to the Broward County State Attorney's office, which is reviewing the incident. A spokesman for the state attorney told multiple media outlets on Monday that a decision on whether to press charges against Landry is not expected this week.

Landry's girlfriend, Estrella Cerqueira, released a statement later Monday via a publicist to NFL Network, saying that she had a vocal disagreement with Landry this past March and that police were called, although she did not call them.

Cerqueira also said in the statement that "there were no criminal charges" and that she "was not in any way physically harmed."

"Yes, we are going through a civil family court case and emotions are high, but I would like to make it very clear that Jarvis would never, ever do anything to harm me or anyone else," Cerqueira said in her statement.

Dolphins coach Adam Gase acknowledged earlier Monday that the team is aware of the incident. Gase told reporters that the Dolphins have taken the proper steps regarding the situation but declined to comment further.

The Dolphins' front office notified the NFL when it became aware of the investigation in the spring, team sources told ESPN's Jeff Darlington. Landry was up front with the team, as far as it knows, as soon as the alleged incident occurred.?

Landry and the Dolphins have been discussing a contract extension this offseason but have not reached an agreement.?

The Dolphins have not held the alleged incident over Landry's head during negotiations for a new contract, and it has not affected those talks to date, the sources told Darlington.

Landry, who had his second consecutive 1,000-yard receiving season in 2016, is due $893,850 in the final year of his rookie deal.

"I don't know if [it gets done] before the season," Dolphins owner Stephen Ross said last week. "But like I said, it's not really mandatory that we do it before the season."
