The Miami Dolphins have officially re-activated defensive end Dion Jordan, the team announced. WR Damian Williams has been waived.

The team's 2013 first round pick missed the first six games of the season serving two drug suspensions from the league. His original suspension, handed down to him during the summer, was a four game ban for performance enhancing drugs. It was reduced to a two game suspension when the league and the NFL Players Association agreed on a new drug testing policy.

Jordan was then suspended for four additional games for a second positive drug test.

The Dolphins completed their sixth game of the season this past weekend when they beat the Chicago Bears 27-14. Jordan was cleared to rejoin the team on Monday.

As the team did with safety Reshad Jones, who was also suspended this year for a positive drug test, serving a four game ban, they welcomed Jordan back earlier this week, but did not activate him officially until today.

To make roster space for Jordan, the team release WR Damian Williams.
