The unusual incident involving Dolphins linebacker Lawrence Timmons finally took a predictable turn Tuesday when the team announced that it had suspended Timmons indefinitely.

Then a reporter asked Gase what his tolerance level was when those rules are broken, answering, "What do you think?" However, the Dolphins linebacker was later found at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX).

Timmons has not publicly commented on the situation, although according to ESPN's Adam Schefter, he sought to rejoin the team Monday.

Most importantly, it reinforced coach Adam Gase's disciplinary structure that consists of only two basic rules: be on time and do your job to the best of your ability.

Miami filed a missing persons report for the 31-year-old after he failed to show up for the matchup with the Chargers.

Timmons' agent, Drew Rosenhaus, was on WSVN-TV in Miami on Sunday night and said the personal matter caused Timmons' absence.

Timmons can be suspended by the team for a maximum of four games. After spending last week with the team training in Oxnard, Calif., because of Hurricane Irma, Timmons mysteriously disappeared once the team moved its base to Los Angeles on Saturday to be closer to Carson, Calif., site of Sunday's game. He had played the previous 10 seasons with the Steelers before leaving in free agency.

Undrafted rookie Chase Allen started in place of Timmons as the Dolphins registered a 19-17 victory.

"I'm not saying anything right now", Gase said in his postgame press conference, via Pro Football Talk.

According to Article 4, Section 9 of the league's CBA, NFL teams may try to recoup money from players who have breached their contracts.
