The Miami Dolphins' offseason took another disappointing turn on Thursday when 2013 first-round pick Dion Jordan was suspended by the NFL for the first four games of the season after violating the league's policy on performance enhancing substances.
"I worked carefully with my advisors and the union to investigate the test results, and I take full responsibility for the test results," said Jordan. "I'm very sorry for the impact of this situation on my teammates, coaches, Stephen Ross, the entire Dolphins organization, fans and my family as well. I will continue to work extremely hard during training camp and preseason. During the suspension, I will stay in top shape and will be ready to contribute upon my return."
Jordan can practice while suspended and will be eligible to return to the Dolphins' active roster in Week 6 at home against the Packers. The team has a Week 5 bye following their trip to London to face the Raiders.
