Dion Jordan’s reintroduction to football is still on hold.
The Miami Dolphins placed Jordan on the non-football injury list on Tuesday. Jordan will not be able to practice or play with the team for the first six weeks of the regular season.
Jordan was suspended last year for violating the league’s substance abuse policy. The defensive end had knee surgery during this offseason before being conditionally reinstated by the NFL in late July.
The former No. 3 overall pick was drafted in 2013 because of his tremendous upside. However, his young career has gotten off to a rocky start. If the Oregon product can get healthy and keep clean, he will participate on a Dolphins team that has a formidable D-line already with Ndamukong Suh, Cameron Wake and Mario Williams.
