Last night, we pointed out that Dolphins defensive end Dion Jordan won’t be ready to participate in contact drills for one or two weeks, following offseason shoulder surgery. As a result, the Dolphins have not yet placed Jordan on the active, 90-man roster.
Per a league source, the Dolphins placed Jordan on the active/non-football injury list upon opening training camp this morning.
He can be moved to the active roster at any time. If he doesn’t make the shift by the date of the final roster cuts, Jordan will spend the first six weeks of the regular season on that non-football injury list.
That would be a shock, if it were to happen. He’ll be ready to go in a week or two. In the interim, he’ll be able to attend meetings and engage in limited workouts on his own. He just can’t practice with the team, either during padded drills or walk-throughs.
