Will Miami Dolphins’ Dion Jordan Even Matter this Year?
The NFL draft is one of my favorite sports moments of the year, so when the Miami Dolphins traded up to the third overall pick to select defensive end Dion Jordan, I was flabbergasted. Even though Jordan was coming off shoulder surgery to repair a torn labrum and he couldn’t practice because of the injury (and because of Oregon‘s school rules), I was excited at the thought of him becoming the next Jason Taylor.
That feeling has subsided over the last few weeks as the team’s first pick in the draft has seen more of the sideline than the waterboy.
Preseason started off well for Jordan, as we all saw him get to the quarterback like we thought he would. Then, all at once, the team decided to stop putting him on the practice field and put him back into rehab. That was week’s ago, and because teams are not required to comment on injuries in the preseason, we have no idea how bad the shoulder is right now, nor do we even know if he’ll suit up to play the Cleveland Browns in eight days.
After the recent preseason finale against the New Orleans Saints, Jordan said that he felt he’ll be ready to help the Dolphins defense when they take the field for their next game. I’m not so sure that even if he’s physically ready to go, that he would be able to walk onto the field and make a difference at this point.
If Jordan can’t get up to speed or has to continue to rehab the shoulder, look for the Dolphins to add him to the PUP list or only use him if one of the starters goes down.
I knew the Dolphins were taking a big risk selecting a boom-or-bust project to begin with, but Jordan is definitely more bust than boom right now.
