The Dolphins are back working and so is Dion Jordan today.
Jordan, on the exemption list now, does not count on the 53-man roster but he is able to practice with the team. And that's what he's doing but the much anticipated ways defensive coordinator Kevin Coyle said the team could easily find uses for Jordan somewhat disappoints me so far.
Today, Jordan was incorporated into the kickoff coverage team, picking up where he left off as he was on the kickoff coverage team all last year and the preseason.
Today, Jordan worked with the defensive linemen because, well, he's a defensive lineman.
But during the open portion of practice at least there was no evidence Jordan was going to get snaps with the linebackers where he might start working as a strongside backer. Miami's linebacker corps continues to be Koa Misi in the middle and Jelani Jenkins and Phillip Wheeler outside.
As you may know I have advocated using Jordan as a strongside linebacker.
Some other notes from practice:
Misi and CB Brent Grimes, who were not able to finish Sunday's game due to injuries, were back practicing today and showing no signs of injury. They practiced at least on a limited basis as the media is not able to view the entire practice.
Brandon Gibson, out the last two weeks, is back at practice today and working at least on a limited basis.
Jimmy Wilson, who missed last week due to a hamstring injury, is not practicing today.
