Dion Jordan injury: Dolphins reportedly believe DE could miss season opener
Miami Dolphins rookie defensive end Dion Jordan might not be ready to play by Week 1 of the regular season, according to a report from the Miami Herald. Jordan, the third overall pick in the NFL draft this year, spent much of the offseason recovering from shoulder surgery. He played sparingly in the Dolphins second preseason game and has not practiced since.
Miami defensive coordinator Kevin Coyle was asked whether or not he doubted that Jordan would be available for the September 8 opener at Cleveland:
"Um, I don't have doubt," Coyle said. "I hope if he stays on target with what we're hearing and what we're seeing, he'll be ready to help us come opening day."
