NFL teams normally expect their first-round draft pick to start right away. That's especially true of the No. 3 overall pick, but things aren't going as planned with Dion Jordan in Miami.
The Dolphins defensive end barely has practiced since the April draft because of shoulder surgery combined with the NFL's rule barring players from practicing until their college class graduates. Jordan's injury limited him to start training camp before he ramped up his work last week. He hasn't practiced since playing just seven snaps in Friday's preseason game.
"We still have three weeks of training camp, so it is a little bit premature to determine what (Jordan's) status will be when we begin the season," Coyle said Monday, via the South Florida Sun Sentinel. "We're going to take it one day at a time and move forward."
