No decision is expected this week on possible charges.

One of the Miami Dolphins top offensive targets is facing a possible off-field issue as an investigation continues into an alleged battery case involving his girlfriend. Apparently Jarvis Landry and the mother of his child were involved in an incident that lead to battery.

Dolphins head coach, Adam Gase, said the team is aware of the situation, but refused to comment further.

The Broward County State Attorney's office addressed the investigation in an e-mail Monday stating the allegations were still being reviewed and that it was uncertain whether Landry would be charged.

Apparently, she's not cooperating with police (not entirely shocking given where her money is coming from), but authorities aren't looking to just drop it altogether. She filed a paternity suit against Landry in April in Broward County court.

Drafted in the second round of the 2014 NFL Draft out of LSU, Landry has been a star for the Dolphins, posting over 1,000 yards receiving the last two seasons with 14 total touchdowns. He has been a star for the Dolphins, and holds the National Football League record for the most receptions in a player's first two seasons (with a current career total of 288 receptions). Jarvis Landry is the key person on the offense, that starts the ignition for the team.

He's entering the final year of his rookie contract and has been discussing a contract extension this offseason.
