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. Nov 23 - 6:36 PM

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.
Nov 22 - 2:48 PM

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.
Oct 17 - 2:00 PM

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.
Aug 30 - 12:20 PM

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.
Aug 20 - 12:30 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.
Aug 16 - 9:57 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.
Aug 15 - 3:19 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.
Aug 8 - 8:07 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.
Jul 31 - 11:25 AM

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.
Jul 31 - 9:01 AM

Dolphins coach Adam Gase said DE Dion Jordan is in "step one of like 500" in his return to the NFL.

Gase added Jordan was in the building on Saturday, but he is not sure when the former first-round pick will begin practicing. Jordan was conditionally reinstated earlier this week, but he will have to meet certain requirements to be allowed to practice. With the Dolphins apparently set to pay his $1.69 million roster bonus, Jordan should be on the final roster if he stays out of trouble.
Jul 30 - 11:52 AM

Dolphins DE Dion Jordan has been reinstated from his year-long suspension.

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Jordan's reinstatement is conditional. He'll be in counseling and will be reevaluated ahead of the season. This at least gets him in the Dolphins' building and lets him practice and play meaningful preseason snaps after missing all of 2015. Miami is expected to hang onto Jordan and pay him a $1.69 million bonus he's due this week.
Jul 29 - 9:55 AM

Dolphins coach Adam Gase said the team has not heard anything about the status of suspended DE Dion Jordan.

Jordan's agent expected him to be reinstated prior to camp, but it does not sound like that will happen. Even if he is reinstated, the Dolphins will have to decide whether or not to pay him the $1.69 million roster bonus he is owed on the fifth day of camp. No matter what, the former first-round pick's future with Miami should be decided within the next couple weeks.
Jul 26 - 11:33 AM

The Miami Herald's Armando Salguero reports suspended DE Dion Jordan is owed a $1.69 million roster bonus on the fifth day of camp.

Jordan would need to get reinstated for this bonus to become an issue, but if he does the Dolphins will have a difficult decision. The former No. 3 overall pick has not been effective even when on the field, and it is not a given he will stay out of trouble even if he is reinstated. That big of a bonus would certainly ensure Jordan a spot on the final roster whether he earns it in camp or not, and some in the organization may be unwilling to make that commitment. This situation should come to a head within the next week.
