Dolphins place Jordan on NFI list

The SportsXchange

The Miami Dolphins placed rookie defensive end Dion Jordan on the non-football injury list Sunday.

Jordan, the No. 3 overall pick in the April draft, is sitting out the start of training camp because his surgically repaired right shoulder is not fully healed.

Jordan, who starred at Oregon, wore uniform No. 95 during the first practice Sunday but watched from the sideline. It is not clear how long he will be out.

Jordan can join the active roster any time before the regular season. If he is not activated by then, he must remain out for the first six weeks of the season.

Jordan signed a four-year, $20.6 million contract Saturday that included a $13.3 million signing bonus.

After missing part of last season with the Ducks, Jordan had surgery in February. He missed all of the Dolphins' organized team activities because of the injury but has been in South Florida the past two months working out with teammates.
