While the Miami Dolphins have set their eyes on completing the 2013 preseason with a positive ending, their rookie defensive end Dion Jordan could miss the regular-season opener against the Cleveland Browns.
Jordan, the third selection in the 2013 NFL draft, may not be ready come Sept. 8, according to Chris Perkins of the Sun Sentinel.
“Would I be surprised?” Jordan asked rhetorically. “It’s my body so I know when I’m ready to go or when I’m not ready to go.
The former Oregon Duck was to make immediate impact from the college level to the NFL, but due to the apparent shoulder injury throughout the training camp and preseason, his stance on the defensive end will be put on hold, for now.
As expected, Jordan will sit out of Saturday’s game as the Dolphins take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at 7:30 p.m.
