Dion Jordan had another knee surgery after joining Seahawks

Defensive end Dion Jordan’s attempt to make the most of a second chance with the Seattle Seahawks has hit a roadblock in the form of yet another knee surgery.

Head coach Pete Carroll said following practice on Tuesday that Jordan recently had surgery 3-4 weeks ago to remove “loose bodies” from inside his knee that were causing significant discomfort.

“We were fixing what had happened before,” Carroll said. “He didn’t get hurt here. He came to us needing a clean-up on his knee. He didn’t know that at the time. We uncovered it. He’s done everything he’s supposed to do and done a good job but he hasn’t been able to get on the field yet.”

Jordan hasn’t played in a game since 2014 with the Miami Dolphins. Suspensions and injuries have sidelined him throughout the last two seasons.

“He’s made really good progress and noticeably feels better, can tell that the discomfort and irritation is out,” Carroll said. “So that’s a really good sign and we’ll see how far he can come and how soon he can come in. We don’t know.”

Jordan appeared in 26 games with Miami, making just one start and recorded just three sacks after being the third overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft.

    Happy Pete is giving him a shot! Not sure what went down in Miami or why, but I don’t remember any problems with him at Oregon.

    Low risk signing; potential substantial high reward, but I’m not holding my breath.

    Nothing personal, but what a waste.

    Can we hear about players that love the game and are truly dedicated to the sport. This piece of garbage deserves no recognition.

    More suspensions than sacks. Sad.

    It’s probably a long shot, but what if Carroll taps into this kid’s potential? Also, according to several local reports, Malik McDowell has looked spectacular so far…rotating him in with Bennett, Avril, and Clark is going to be fun to watch.

    Hasn’t gotten on the field yet. Wow, there’s a shock. He might have to buy tickets to a game to get close to the field.
