Dolphins Training Camp 2013: Dion Jordan Practices

USA TODAY Sports

The Miami Dolphins saw third overall draft pick Dion Jordan hit the practice field for the first time since they selected him back in April. Jordan had offseason shoulder surgery and had been forced to sit out workouts until today.

The Miami Dolphins had only one player sit out practice on Tuesday, and it wasn't the one who had missed the first two days of training camp. Second round draft pick Jamar Taylor was forced to miss the workouts due to an undisclosed injury. However, for the first time since being selected with the third overall pick back in April's NFL Draft, defensive end Dion Jordan was able to workout with the team.

Jordan, who signed his rookie contract on Saturday in order to get into camp before the first practice on Sunday, was forced to miss the first two days of camp after being placed on the Non-Football Injury list. Jordan had shoulder surgery following the NFL Scouting Combine in February and had not been cleared to practice. That all changed today as the Dolphins removed him from the NFI and he was out performing drills with the rest of the team.

The Dolphins practiced with pads for the first time this year, so it was a perfect time for Jordan to join the team. He will likely compete with second year defensive end Olivier Vernon for the starting right defensive end position after incumbent Jared Odrick moved inside to defensive tackle this offseason.
