Joe Philbin Says Dolphins LB Dion Jordan 'Will Be Seen A Lot Soon'
Miami Dolphins pass rusher Dion Jordan was drafted third overall in April to transform the team's ability to hassle the quarterback.
His progress has been limited by a surgically repaired shoulder that kept him at bay during training camp and raised questions about the rookie's availability for the season opener. After Jordan returned to practice Tuesday, the Dolphins are hopeful he'll be ready for the Cleveland Browns on Sept. 8.
Dolphins coach Joe Philbin, on a teleconference meet and greet with fans Wednesday, said "you're going to see a lot" of Jordan "in the next couple of weeks," according to The Palm Beach Post.
Philbin went on to say Jordan is "really catching on quickly," but he acknowledged the team's first-rounder needs reps on defense to find his way in the Dolphins' scheme.
It's a positive indication the Dolphins expect Jordan to be part of the plan in Week 1.
