The NFL has decided to conditionally reinstate Miami Dolphins’ pass-rusher Dion Jordan, who was suspended for a year under the league’s substance abuse policy after submitting a diluted test sample. According to the announcement from the NFL, Jordan can join the Dolphins at training camp, allowed to participate in “meetings, conditioning work and similar activities.” He must also secure treatment in the Miami area, and after he’s done that he will be able to play in preseason games. The NFL will re-evaluate Jordan’s case at the start of the regular season, and after meeting with him will determine whether he’s been complying with the conditions of his reinstatement, he will be allowed to participate in regular-season activities.
HOUSTON (AP) A former Texas A&M and Miami Dolphins linebacker and his wife were fatally shot at their home in Houston, and a 16-year-old boy has been charged as a juvenile with murder in the slayings. Texas A&M University identified the victims in a statement as Antonio and Dawn Armstrong. Police say officers discovered the wounded couple about 2 a.m. Friday. Dawn Armstrong died at the scene, and Antonio Armstrong was pronounced dead at Memorial Hermann Hospital hours later with a gunshot wound to the head. The suspect's identity is being withheld because of his age. Texas A&M issued a statement Friday saying Antonio Armstrong was a letterman who played for the Aggies from 1991 to 1994.
