DAVIE, Fla. - Dolphins head coach Brian Flores said he is disciplining cornerback Bobby McCain.

It all stems from an interaction with a Buffalo fan following Sunday's loss for Miami.

The Buffalo News is reporting that McCain spit on one fan and threatened to spit on a 13-year-old boy who heckled him.

"I talked to Bobby about this this morning," head coach Brian Flores said Monday. "He and I have a pretty open dialogue. Heard his side of the story. It's unfortunate. I feel he needed to handle that situation better.  We're going to discipline Bobby for that. We'll have that discipline internally. But, you know, situation like this there -- we've got to handle those situations. We take those very seriously."

Flores said the Dolphins are trying to set a standard of professionalism.

Flores also pointed to rookie Christian Wilkins getting thrown out of the game after throwing a punch in the first quarter of the game.
