Jordan hoping to make impact for Miami

DAVIE, Fla. (AP) - Dolphins first-round pick Dion Jordan's NFL career got off to a slow start. It's time for the defensive end to start making an impact.

That's how the third overall selection in the draft and the first defensive player taken sees it. Jordan has begun making some plays in recent weeks, and with the Dolphins back at practice Monday after their bye, Jordan is hoping to build on that.

The Dolphins, who traded up in the first round to land Jordan, worked him in slowly at the beginning of the season after he sat most of the preseason while recovering from offseason shoulder surgery.

But his workload has increased in recent weeks, particularly in light of the knee injury sustained by two-time Pro Bowl defensive end Cameron Wake.
