Richie Incognito filed a grievance Thursday against the Miami Dolphins over his suspension.

The NFL Players Association released a statement late in the afternoon saying the veteran guard filed a non-injury grievance.

“The grievance challenges his suspension for conduct which was alleged to have occurred while he was with the club,” the union’s statement said. “In the grievance, Incognito requests that the hearing be held on an expedited basis so that he can immediately resume playing for the team.

“The NFL Players Association will continue to protect the rights of all players.”

Incognito was suspended by Miami on Nov. 3 for misconduct related to the treatment of teammate Jonathan Martin, who abruptly left the Dolphins late last month to receive help for emotional issues.

Manning practices

Peyton Manning was back at practice for the Denver Broncos on Thursday, listed as “limited” on the injury report but looking more and more like a sure thing to play Sunday. “He practiced a good bit and looked like he was doing the things he needs to do for us,” interim head coach Jack Del Rio said.

Jets sign Reed

The Jets signed Ed Reed, a nine-time Pro Bowl safety, Thursday, bringing one of the NFL’s greatest playmaking defensive players to a secondary on a defense that ranks 24th against the pass. The 35-year-old Reed was released Tuesday by Houston, cleared waivers Wednesday and joined less than 24 hours later.
