Miami Dolphins guard Richie Incognito will remain suspended with pay until the NFL investigation is complete according to an agreement reached between him and the team, NFL.com is reporting.

The Dolphins had no comment on the report.

Incognito was suspended by the Dolphins on Nov. 3 for conduct detrimental to the team. He's been accused of bullying/harassing right tackle Jonathan Martin, who left the team on Oct. 28. The NFL is investigating that accusation as well as the Dolphins' workplace.

Under terms of the Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA), Incognito could be suspended only four games for conduct detrimental to the team. Sunday's game against the New York Jets is the fourth game.

According to NFL.com, Incognito, under a deal approved by both the NFL and the NFL Players Association, will be paid until NFL special investigator Ted Wells has concluded his probe.

Incognito, a free agent at season's end, earns about $235,300 per game. He wasn't paid during his four-game suspension. It's not known if he'd pursue those lost wages if the NFL investigation absolves him of major wrongdoing.

Incognito filed a grievance with the Dolphins but agreed to postpone his expedited hearing until after the NFL investigation is completed.

Vikings: Adrian Peterson returned to practice and is probable for Sunday's game against the Chicago Bears.

Peterson, second in the league with 997 yards rushing, has been limited for three weeks with a groin injury and was held out of practice Wednesday and Thursday. But the reigning MVP will be "ready to roll" when Minnesota hosts Chicago and its 32nd-ranked run defense Sunday.

Cardinals: Arizona coach Bruce Arians says the availability of running back Andre Ellington on Sunday at Philadelphia will be "a game-time decision." Ellington injured his left knee late in practice on Thursday and sat out Friday's workout.

The dynamic rookie from Clemson leads the Cardinals in rushing with 441 yards on only 73 carries, an average of 6 yards per carry. He also has 28 receptions for 247 yards.

Broncos: Denver might have lost a fourth defensive starter for its game at Kansas City on Sunday after lineman Derek Wolfe fell ill sometime between the end of practice Friday and the team's departure to the airport about an hour later. The defensive end/tackle was added to the injury report and listed as questionable, same as cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (shoulder).

The Broncos have lost two defensive starters to injury in the past two weeks. Safety Rahim Moore underwent emergency surgery to fix a blood flow problem in his left leg after pulling up lame against Kansas City on Nov. 17. Defensive tackle Kevin Vickerson dislocated his right hip Sunday at New England.

Both went on injured reserve, although Moore could return for the playoffs.

Chiefs: Tamba Hali pronounced himself close to 100 percent after spraining his right ankle in last week's loss to San Diego and will play Sunday against Denver. Meanwhile, fellow linebacker Justin Houston is out Sunday and is considered "week to week" after dislocating his right elbow against the Chargers.

Giants: Defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul (shoulder) and cornerback Trumaine McBride (groin) have been ruled out for Sunday night's road game against Washington.

Cowboys: Dallas running back Lance Dunbar is expected to miss the rest of the season with a knee injury suffered in Thursday's win over the Raiders.

Fines: Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback William Gay has been fined $15,750 by the NFL for his hit last Sunday that gave Cleveland Browns quarterback Jason Campbell a concussion. Also fined was New Orleans Saints defensive end Cam Jordan, docked $10,000 for a hit on Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan.
