Dolphins pass-rusher Dion Jordan knows Colts quarterback Andrew Luck well.
The particulars of their meeting he knows less well, but knows what the final score is from their days at Oregon and Stanford.
“Yeah, me and Luck know each other pretty well,” Jordan said, via Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald. “I never lost to Andrew Luck. I don’t plan on it.”
Jordan was a member of the Ducks teams that beat Luck’s Cardinal 52-31 in 2010 and 55-30 in 2011.
While Jordan claimed to have gotten Luck to the ground “two or three” times, the box scores showed he had half a sack. But Luck winced at the revisiting, regardless.
“I try to forget most of my matchups against Oregon, so thanks for bringing those up,” Luck deadpanned Wednesday when asked about the one-sided rivalry. “I just remember [he’s] fast, athletic, eats up space and physical. A lot of respect for him as a player.”
The Dolphins rookie isn’t starting, and played as many snaps on special teams as defense as he adjusts his style and his body to the pro game — something Luck didn’t get or need any time to adapt to.
