Jordan racked up two tackles, both sacks, in Sunday's 21-18 win over Cleveland.
Jordan's tackle total dipped from Week 1 to Week 2, but he more than made up for it by securing a pair of takedowns on Browns quarterback Tyrod Taylor. Jordan's ability to pressure Matt Ryan in Week 3 could play a big role in the defense's effort to stymie the Falcons' offense as the Saints look to move to 2-1 on the season.
Jordan is looking to extend his consecutive appearances streak since he was selected in the first round of the 2011 draft. Currently sitting at 112 games, he appears good to go following February surgery to remove a bone spur from his left foot. Assuming he remains healthy yet again in 2018, Jordan will aim to secure his fourth double-digit sack campaign in six seasons.
Jordan (foot) was sidelined for team drills during OTAs on Thursday, Josh Katzenstein of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.
It's unclear exactly how much individual work Jordan may have been able to put in Thursday, but it looks like the saints are easing the defensive end back onto the field after he underwent minor foot surgery back in February. There hasn't been much concern surrounding Jordan's healthy since the surgery, however, and there isn't much of a reason to rush him back onto the practice field. Expect another update on Jordan's status to come during the team's mandatory minicamp in June.
Jordan (foot) is no longer wearing any protective equipment on his surgically-repaired left foot, Joel Erickson of the New Orleans Advocate reports.
Jordan underwent offseason surgery to remove a bone spur in his left foot. While this is an injury that has reportedly bothered Jordan for the better part of two years now, the corrective procedure he recently underwent is still considered to be a minor operation. The 2017 first-team All-Pro should be back to normal well in advance of training camp and could possibly take part in offseason workouts as well.
Jordan recently underwent minor surgery on his left foot, Josh Katzenstein of the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.
Jordan, who currently requires a protective boot and scooter to move around, reportedly underwent a voluntary procedure that had more to do with "pain tolerance" than anything else. The fact that he played in the Pro Bowl prior to undergoing surgery suggests the situation truly is minor in nature. The 2017 All-Pro defensive end is expected to be recovered within four-to-six weeks and should be healthy in time for the Saints' offseason program this spring.
