Draft Scout Dion Jordan News
08/09/16 - DE Dion Jordan, recently given his conditional reinstatement to the NFL after a one-year suspension, was cleared to practice Monday, according to a tweet from ESPN's Adam Schefter. Jordan, however, will likely miss all of training camp as he recovers from knee surgery. Jordan still must be cleared by the NFL to participate in the Sept. 11 opener at Seattle, and cleared again during the season to get his full reinstatement.
08/02/16 - DE Dion Jordan, who got his conditional NFL reinstatement Friday, surprised the team with the news that he had arthroscopic knee surgery recently. The Dolphins weren't allowed to have contact with Jordan since his one-year suspension in April 2015. Coach Adam Gase said Jordan, the No. 3 pick of the 2013 draft, could be sidelined for all of training camp. Jordan, suspended for one year for repeated violations of the league's drug policy, can't practice until he receives NFL clearance that his clinical support system is in place.
07/31/16 - DE Dion Jordan went on the active/non-football injury list (NFI) on Sunday, so he will miss at least the first few weeks of training camp.
Jordan, hoping to redeem himself after two suspensions for violating the NFL's substances-abuse policy, recently underwent minor knee surgery that will prevent the former No. 3 overall pick from passing a physical for a few weeks. Jordan was injured during a private workout, and the team was not aware of it until recently. "Him coming in here, that (injury) was news to us," Dolphins coach Adam Gase said.
07/29/16 - DE Dion Jordan has been reinstated on a conditional basis by the NFL following his yearlong suspension for violations of the substance-abuse policy.
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell notified Jordan that he can join the Dolphins at training camp, which opened Friday. Jordan, 26, can become eligible for Week 1 of the regular season after a follow-up meeting with the NFL.
Jordan, the third overall pick in the 2013 draft, had been suspended indefinitely since April 2015 without pay following multiple violations of the NFL-NFLPA Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse. He has been suspended three times during his NFL career.
In two NFL seasons, Jordan has fallen short of expectations with just three sacks and 46 tackles in 26 regular-season games. The Dolphins traded up in the draft to land the 6-6, 275-pound pass rusher out of Oregon.
04/29/15 - DE Dion Jordan will sit out the 2015 season resulting from a NFL suspension for a positive drug test.
Jordan, the No. 3 overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, will not appeal the ban, which reportedly came from a diluted test sample.
"We were disappointed to learn about Dion Jordan's most recent suspension for violating the NFL's Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse," the Dolphins said in a statement. "A player's health and well-being are of the utmost importance to us. We have made every effort to support Dion, both on and off the field and we will continue to do so to the extent allowable under NFL guidelines."
Jordan also was suspended for the first four games without pay in 2014 after violating the NFL's substance abuse policy and later given an additional four-game suspension for violating the policy.
ESPN reported that the suspension puts an end to possible trade discussions with the Philadelphia Eagles in February regarding Jordan. The 25 year old played at Oregon when Eagles coach Chip Kelly was with the Ducks.
Jordan has not shown up for the Dolphins' voluntary workout program this month.
In two NFL seasons, Jordan has fallen short of expectations with just three sacks and 46 tackles in 26 regular-season games. The Dolphins traded up in the 2013 draft to land Jordan.
