Dolphins DC Vance Joseph expects Dion Jordan to return next season.

"He's a big body who can help us in the future," Joseph said. "But he's lacking health. We didn't see the kid healthy enough to play." Coach Adam Gase has been noncommittal on Jordan's status for next year. Jordan hasn’t appeared in a game since 2014 after multiple suspensions and duel knee surgeries. He’s going to need to take a pay cut from his $3.2 million salary to avoid offseason release.

The Dolphins will not activate DE Dion Jordan (knee) from the reserve/NFI list, ending his season.

So continues Jordan's baffling NFL career. The Dolphins might decide to finally wash their hands of the monumental 2013 draft bust this offseason.

The Dolphins have until Tuesday at 4 PM ET to activate DE Dion Jordan (knee) from the NFI list.

He's at the end of his three-week window for activation. The Dolphins have a roster spot available after placing Mike Pouncey (hip) on season-ending injured reserve. Jordan hasn't played an NFL game since 2014 after serving a year-long suspension for repeated violations of the league's substance abuse policy. Jordan was noncommittal when asked about his return several weeks ago.

When asked about his chances of returning this year, Dolphins DE Dion Jordan (knee, NFI) said, "It's kinda hard to tell."

Jordan resumed practicing on Wednesday but there's no guarantee he'll see any game action this year. "It's my body," said Jordan. "If my body tells me I’m not ready to go out there and perform with the best athletes, then I’m not gonna put myself out there, but the way things have been going, they’ve been going well." The former third overall pick hasn't played an NFL snap since 2014.

Dolphins DE Dion Jordan (knee surgery, NFI) is expected to resume practicing on Wednesday.

The monumental 2013 draft bust hasn't taken part in a regular season practice since December 2014. It's still just a tiny step. Jordan is recovering from two knee operations. The Dolphins are simply starting his three-week window for activation. It's still possible Jordan doesn't play this season.

Dolphins DE Dion Jordan (knee, NFI) is hoping to return this season.

Jordan had a second knee surgery earlier this month, but it's not season ending. He'll still need to avoid setbacks to make it back this year. The Dolphins have a 21-day window to make a decision on Jordan's status.

Dolphins DE Dion Jordan (knee, PUP) underwent another operation, and is out indefinitely.

Per the Miami Herald, Jordan had the surgery a "few weeks back." It's starting to look like Jordan isn't going to play this season. His Dolphins tenure has been a catastrophe since they traded up to select him at No. 3 overall in 2013.

Dolphins placed DE Dion Jordan (knee) on the reserve/NFI list.

The move will prevent him from playing for at least the first six weeks of the season. Despite the injury, Jordan has earned praise from coach Adam Gase for his work ethic since being reinstated. He could play a role this season. LB Zach Vigil also landed on reserve/NFI, getting Miami to the 75-man roster limit.

Coach Adam Gase has been impressed with Dion Jordan’s (knee, active/NFI) work ethic.

"Every time he’s supposed be somewhere, he’s there. He’s been engaged in everything we’ve done. Whatever’s happened in the past is irrelevant." Jordan looks fully invested after loafing through his first three seasons. He’s likely to open the year on NFI, but could make a second-half impact.
Sat, Aug 20, 2016 12:30:00 PM

The Miami Herald's Barry Jackson reports there's a "good chance" Dolphins DE Dion Jordan (knee) opens the season on the reserve/NFI list.

Jordan is recovering from a cleanup procedure on his knee and has yet to practice this summer since being reinstated from suspension. Opening the year on the NFI list would cost Jordan at least the first six weeks of the season. He has some rust to knock off, and this would give him a chance to do that.
Tue, Aug 16, 2016 09:57:00 PM

Dolphins DC Vance Joseph says DE Dion Jordan has been "totally engaged" as he rehabs his knee injury.

"He's been totally engaged in meetings and with his rehab," were Joseph's exact words. "He needs time to get healthy. Once he gets healthy, we'll get him out there." There had been chatter the Dolphins might move Jordan to outside linebacker, but they're keeping him at defensive end. He's week to week as he recovers from a "clean-out" procedure.
Mon, Aug 15, 2016 03:19:00 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the NFL has notified the Dolphins that DE Dion Jordan is now eligible to practice.

Jordan was conditionally reinstated from his year-long ban 11 days ago. The league still wanted to go through some things with Jordan before letting him on the field. The air has evidently been cleared, but it's unclear when exactly Jordan will practice since he's also dealing with a minor knee injury.
Mon, Aug 8, 2016 08:07:00 PM

Dolphins DE Dion Jordan (knee) reported to training camp at 275 pounds.

That's exactly what the Dolphins have him listed at. It's good to see that Jordan didn't let himself go during his year away from football, but this weight assures he'll be spending most of his time at defensive end rather than outside linebacker. Of course, Jordan will have to shake off a knee injury before that happens. Coach Adam Gase said Jordan's surgery was "news to us." He's expected to miss 2-3 weeks.

Dolphins placed DE Dion Jordan (knee) on the active/NFI list.

He's recovering from a knee surgery that Jordan described as a "clean-out" procedure. Jordan will be on the field rehabbing but he won't be able to practice for at least 2-3 weeks. It would have been nice for Jordan to get full reps at camp after being suspended for all of last season but it doesn't look like this injury will be a major stumbling block. Consider him questionable for Week 1 against Seattle. The NFI designation means he will not be getting his $1.69 million roster bonus.
