Draft Scout News
10/06/14 - S Reshad Jones, who missed the first four games because he was suspended for violating the NFL policy on performance-enhancing substances, had his roster exemption lifted and is back on the 53-man roster. It remains unclear whether he'll return to being a full-time starter this week.
09/29/14 - S Reshad Jones (suspension) and middle linebacker Koa Misi (ankle) should both be ready to return for Miami's next game, which is Oct. 12 against Green Bay. Their presence could help the regular defense, nickel and special teams.
"We want to get (Jones) up to speed as fast as possible," defensive coordinator Kevin Coyle said. "He's a playmaker, he can be a difference-maker for us."
The trickle-down effect with Jones is he could return to strong safety, putting Louis Delmas back at free safety. That, in turn, could mean safety Jimmy Wilson returns to playing the slot defensive back position in the nickel defense. That would allow cornerback Will Davis to play more special teams.
As for Misi, his return could mean linebacker Jason Trusnik returns to fulltime special teams, which that unit could use. Trusnik is the special teams captain.
08/09/14 - S Reshad Jones has been suspended without pay for the first four games of the regular season for violating the NFL policy on performance-enhancing substances, the league announced Friday.
Jones will be eligible to return to the Dolphins' active roster on Monday, Sept. 29 following the team's game against the Oakland Raiders.
"I was very disappointed when we found out about Reshad's suspension," head coach Joe Philbin said in a statement. "When we talked to him, Reshad pledged to learn from this situation. Our secondary as a unit, including Reshad, has performed well this offseason and I have complete confidence in the group as we progress through training camp and into the regular season."
Jones is eligible to participate in all preseason practices and games.
"The NFL recently informed me that I tested positive for a substance that is banned under the NFL performance enhancing substances policy," Jones said in a statement. "I worked closely with the union to investigate what happened, and I learned that a supplement I took caused the positive test. I deeply regret not investigating the supplement carefully before I took it, and I will never again take a supplement without having it checked. I am very sorry for the effect of my mistake on my teammates and coaches. I apologize to them, Stephen Ross, the Dolphins organization and fans. During the time away from the team, I will maintain an intense training program so that I can help my team as soon as I return."
Jones was a 16-game starter last season, finishing with 107 tackles, 1.5 sacks and an interception that was ran back for a touchdown. He signed a four-year, $30 million contract last August.
The Dolphins are now down two important defenders due to suspension. Defensive end Dion Jordan received a four-game suspension on July 3 for a similar violation.
