Dion Jordan to NFI list; won't earn roster bonus

The Miami Dolphins are placing defensive end Dion Jordan on the Non-Football Injury list this morning, per a source.

Jordan had knee surgery prior to rejoining the team Saturday and will not be able to practice or pass his physical for 2-3 weeks.

[Update: The team has now announced this move.]

That means Jordan, who was reinstated on a conditional basis Saturday, will not earn the $1.69 million roster bonus due him Monday. The Dolphins will nonetheless continue to keep his rights.

I am told the Dolphins still have hopes Jordan is able to complete all the necessary issues relative to his conditional reinstatement, as well as making a recovery from the knee injury, and make their team. The injury does not really seal Jordan's fate one way or another.

In other news, the team activated running back Arian Foster off the physically unable to perform list.

Foster will practice today.

The team also signed former University of Miami cornerback Brandon Harris, a former second-round pick of the Houston Texans. To make room for Harris the team cut Tyler Patmon.
