Dion Jordan Taken Off NFI List and Will Participate In Practice

Miami Dolphins Rookie DE Dion Jordan was expected to be sidelined for the first couple of weeks of training camp recovering from shoulder surgery, but things have speeded up and he has been taken off of the non-football injury list and will be jumping onto the field. The combination of Dion Jordan and Cameron Wake will be fun to watch on the Miami defense. That is a ton of speed and power coming off the edges for the Dolphins defense.

Joe Philbin said that Jordan wouldn’t be on the practice field if he wasn’t physically capable. “He’s treated like every other player.”

“We’re teaching him the system, getting him acclimate to the scheme, teaching him the fundamentals,” Philbin said

Jordan will be putting on full pads this morning for his first day of training camp. The pads are on and it is time to see what this kid has. He will need to bring the pressure on the other side of Wake. I think he will be a phenomenal player for the Dolphins for years to come.

To stand out from the crowd, Jordan changed up the hair so that everyone can see him.
