DAVIE –Miami Dolphins first-round pick Dion Jordan sat out his second straight practice,and it appears the team's trainers and coaches might put the rookie pass rusher on ice for a couple more days. Defensive coordinator Kevin Coyle hinted that the Dolphins are concerned about the lingering shoulder injury Jordan had surgically repaired in February,and will likely scale back his practice participation for at least a week.
“We’ve obviously taken some precaution as we move forward with Dion,not wanting to overload him,” Coyle said of Jordan,the third-overall pick in the 2013 draft. “We have a plan in place that will get him ready to participate at the level we feel best at when we begin the season.
Let us all collectively keep our fingers crossed that he will be ready to go for the opener.
