Dion Jordan Suspended

The Dolphins announced Thursday that Jordan has been suspended without pay for the first four games of the regular season for violating the NFL’s policy on performance-enhancing substances. Jordan is eligible to return to the Dolphins’ active roster on Sept. 29 following the team’s Week 4 game against the Oakland Raiders. The Dolphins have a bye in Week 5.

The suspension comes after Jordan showed up at Dolphins OTAs with nearly 20 pounds of added muscle to his frame. The 6-foot-6 Jordan had a part-time role as rookie playing at 248 pounds. Armando Salguero of The Miami Herald noted at OTAs that Jordan looked “as if he took an air pump” to his arms and shoulders.
