Adam Gase: Dion Jordan’s knee injury was “news to us”

Dion Jordan AP

Defensive end Dion Jordan is back with the Dolphins after being conditionally reinstated from the suspension that kept him off the field all of last season, but he has some rehab to do on his knee before he’ll actually get on the field.

Jordan has been placed on the non-football injury list after having arthroscopic surgery on his knee prior to the league’s decision to reinstate him. The Dolphins’ ability to communicate with Jordan during his suspension was limited, which led coach Adam Gase to say, via Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald, that Jordan’s knee issue was “news to us” when he arrived on Saturday.

Gase didn’t give a firm timetable on when the Dolphins would get Jordan back in action, but did say that it would be similar to the timetable for rookie cornerback Xavien Howard’s recovery from his own knee scope. Gase said the team expects Howard to be ready to play by the start of the regular season at the latest.

Whenever Jordan is ready, Gase reiterated that the team believes this is a “good fresh start” for a player who hasn’t done much of anything on the field since the Dolphins traded up to take him with the third overall pick of the 2013 draft.

    So he just managed to swindle yet more money from the Dolphins for no production. They should have cut this loser. He probably won’t play four games this year.

    I have no beef with the Dolphins. As a matter of fact, I’d like to see someone take down the Pats in the AFCE. But every year you hear chatter from “un-named” GMs and scouts who say “We aren’t competing with 32 teams for the title. We’re competing with 5-8 depending on the year. Most of the teams take themselves out of the equation before week 1 ever kicks off.”

    Sounds to be about right in this case.

    The guy knows what he’s doing. He’s living off the 3rd overall pick. After phins realize that and cut him another team will sign him and go through the same. The guy obviously doesn’t want to play.

    He actually owes the Dolphins.

    This is absolute BS… these were Quotes from the Miami Herald. The Dolphins were not officially allowed to medical advise him of anything. This was part of the plan to not pay him the $1.7M (even though he is in debt for $3.5M to the Dolphins). Nothing to see here. If he plays ST and OLB he will be a Bonus. If he does not, no loss that the team already did not take. For the record, he actually has been working out and they are cleaning up the knee and removing loose bodies. I know this for a fact as he was at IMG for April and May and the surgery was scheduled for June. The Dolphins knew this along. This is why he did not reapply for reinstatement when he could in April. Nothing happens in the NFL without knowledge. This is a multi-billion business. He seems serious and he should be…this is the last chance. Good Luck to him!To the rest of the NFL… if the Kiko, Dion Jordan, Byron Maxwell, Mario Williams and Arian Foster work out it will be lights out for a bargain.

    He will soon fit in with the other Oregon rejects.

    Some players become more “problems” than “players.” That’s when it’s time to let them take take their “problems” somewhere else.

    No, no, and hopefully, no.
