Dolphins' Dion Jordan not practicing, unlikely to start

http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap1000000229397/article/dolphins-dion-jordan-not-practicing-unlikely-to-start
Gregg Rosenthal

The Dolphins defensive end barely has practiced since the draft because of shoulder surgery combined with the NFL's rule barring players from practicing until their college class graduates. Jordan's injury limited him to start training camp before he ramped up his work last week. He hasn't practiced since playing just seven snaps in Friday's preseason game.

Defensive coordinator Kevin Coyle said Jordan is not competing with Olivier Vernon for the starting job opposite Cameron Wake. It's Vernon's job. The team is hoping Jordan can be a situational pass rusher, but even that seems up in the air.

"We still have three weeks of training camp, so it is a little bit premature to determine what (Jordan's) status will be when we begin the season," Coyle said Monday, via the South Florida Sun Sentinel. "We're going to take it one day at a time and move forward."

It's early, but the Dolphins might not get the impact they hoped for from their rookie class.

And this is different than any other year?

Miami needs to be patient with Dion. They knew when the drafted him that he had the shoulder issue and needed surgery, and he did not get a chance to go thru mini camp because of the late school year at Oregon.

I've seen glimpse of what he can be.

Sorry, I think the #3 overall should be a starter from day one. Now if he is injured thats different but when healed should start. Imho...

Vernon was owned by the Jags LT. Going against Martin in practice doesn't count.

They announced shortly after the draft that he would not be a week one starter.

Your wasting your breathe here tho, seems we are the only two people who fell its not a good move to trade up and draft a developmental player at # 3 overall..

Make me the 3rd person in that group then. #3 overall should be starting day 1.

On most teams he would be a starter.....He will be a huge part of what is going on this year and ready to replace some older vets in coming years....
