Report: Dolphins DT Traylor facing NFL discipline

ESPN.com news services

Dolphins defensive tackle Keith Traylor faces disciplinary action from the NFL for violating the league's personal conduct policy, The South Florida Sun-Sentinel reported Wednesday.

Traylor is serving a one-year probation sentence for two misdemeanor charges stemming from a May 16 arrest in Oklahoma on charges of driving under the influence and possession of a controlled dangerous substance.

Traylor also was charged with a felony for ripping a smoke detector off a jail wall, but Tania Bible, legal secretary for the Mayes County, Okla., district attorney, told the newspaper the charge was reduced to a misdemeanor when he was sentenced to a one-year deferred sentence on July 19.

Bible told the newspaper that Traylor paid $100 to replace the smoke detector and received probation for the DUI charge. The controlled substance charge was dropped. If Traylor completes his probation, both charges will be dropped.

However, Traylor is still subject to NFL discipline. NFL spokesman Greg Aiello told the Sun-Sentinel that "it will be reviewed under the appropriate league policy."

According to the policy, if a player is convicted or pleads guilty to a crime, he is subject to discipline at the discretion of the commissioner.

Traylor, 37, had two sacks in the Dolphins' first win of the season last Sunday, a 13-10 victory over the Titans.
