Dolphins will slowly work Dion Jordan back into game shape
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(10/20/14) Dolphins defensive end Dion Jordan has served his six-game suspension and is eligible to return to practice as early as Monday, though a roster move won't be announced until later in the week, ESPN reports. The Dolphins are already deep in defensive line depth and will likely work Jordan slowly back into game shape, according to coach Joe Philbin.
"We're going to have to get him on the field and start working him and see where he's at," Philbin said. "It will be great to have him back. But we have to take it one day at a time."

|(9/19/14) The drug suspension issued by the NFL against Dolphins defensive end Dion Jordan will keep him sidelined until his eligibility to return on Oct. 20 at Chicago, per the Miami Herald.
Jordan will have missed six games by that time. He played in all 16 games as a rookie last season, contributing to 26 tackles and recording two sacks.
NFL, NFLPA finishing up new drug policy
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(9/16/14) The NFL and the NFL Players Association are finalizing a new drug policy Tuesday evening, and a formal announcement is expected to be made by Wednesday morning, CBSSports.com NFL insider Jason La Canfora reports.
The NFLPA has begun to notify players of the revamped suspensions under the new policy, including Browns receiver Josh Gordon officially having his suspension reduced to 10 games. Broncos wide receiver Wes Welker, Rams wide receiver Stedman Bailey and Cowboys cornerback Orlando Scandrick are among the handful of players who should be able to rejoin their respective teams Wednesday in preparation of playing in Week 3.
However, Dolphins defenders Dion Jordan and Reshad Jones are not expected to be affected by the change in policy, the Palm Beach Post reports, leaving their suspensions active for two more games.
Report: Dion Jordan won't have suspension cut short
|by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com|
|(9/16/14) Dolphins defensive end Dion Jordan won't have his four-game suspension for violating the NFL's drug policy cut short if a new policy is adopted, reports the Miami Herald. An announcement on a new policy is expected soon, the paper said.
Several other players suspended under the old policy are expected to be eligible to play Week 3.
|Dion Jordan was considered a bust as a rookie in 2013 after the Dolphins traded up to the No. 3 overall spot to draft him from Oregon, but he failed to make an impact with just two sacks and 26 total tackles. He will play a bigger role this year, but the Dolphins have Cameron Wake and Olivier Vernon ahead of him on the depth chart. We don't recommend drafting Jordan in the majority of IDP leagues, but he is someone to monitor. If his playing time increases and he can improve his sack total then he's worth adding off waivers during the year.
