Not only did Dion Jordan not get his suspension shortened, it went the other direction.
According to Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald, the Dolphins announced that the second-year outside linebacker has been suspended again.
His previous four-game suspension for violating the PED policy was lifted after two games, but was then superseded by a new four-game suspension for violating the league’s substance abuse policy.
He will be eligible to return Oct. 20, the day after they play the Bears.
“I am currently undergoing treatment to address my situation,” Jordan said in a statement provided by the team. “I am working hard to become a better man and to make better choices in the future. I am especially looking forward to returning to the team. I also want to thank my family, Coach [Joe] Philbin and the Miami Dolphins organization for their support.”
The short version is he’ll miss six games this year, instead of four, and is looking more and more like a failed use of the third overall choice in the 2013 NFL Draft.
