Jordan (knee) and the Dolphins are expected to part ways, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.
Jordan didn't play this season due to multiple suspensions (PED/drugs) and two knee surgeries. The former third overall pick has been a bust with Miami and is expected to be cut.
Jordan (knee) won't be activated to the 53-man roster and will instead remain on the non-football injury list, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.
Jordan's three-week practice window has now been closed, ending any shot of the 2013 first-round pick making his first appearance since the 2014 season. He'll now focus his efforts on completing his rehab from a meniscus repair last offseason, with one year remaining on his rookie contract.
It's been almost two years since Jordan participated in a practice, as he has spent all of the 2016 season on the non-football injury list, rehabbing a knee aliment. A return to practice doesn't guarantee he'll be on field this coming Sunday or even the next handful of games. However, if he were cleared to play, Jordan may serve as a replacement for Jason Jones, who begins his two-game suspension for violating the league's substance abuse policy. Look for more updates on Jordan's status to come as practice reports are released.
Jordan had his first surgery on the knee during the summer so it's certainly not good news that it needed to be cleaned out again. There is currently no timetable for his return to the team.
Picked No. 3 overall in 2013, the 26-year-old Jordan was suspended for all of 2015 due to a repeat violation of the NFL's substance-abuse policy. Although he was conditionally reinstated by the league, Jordan hasn't been able to practice while recovering from offseason knee surgery. He has just three sacks in 16 career appearances.
