Miami Dolphins first-round pick Dion Jordan sat out his second straight practice and it appears the team's trainers and coaches might put the rookie pass rusher on ice for a couple more days. Defensive coordinator Kevin Coyle hinted that the Dolphins are concerned about the lingering shoulder injury Jordan had surgically repaired in February and will likely scale back his practice participation for at least a week. “We’ve obviously taken some precaution as we move forward with Dion not wanting to overload him” Coyle said of Jordan the third-overall pick in the 2013 draft. “We have a plan in place that will get him ready to participate at the level we feel best at when we begin the season. “We’d like to see as much of him as we can but we’re going to be real careful how we proceed" Coyle continued. Jordan who was held out of serious contact work during the first week of training camp was progressively getting more and more involved on running downs each week. He played in the Dolphins’ first two exhibition games contributing three tackles. But hasn't been on the field since playing seven snaps in Friday night's 27-3 win over the Jaguars.
