Miami Dolphins defensive end Dion Jordan was suspended by the NFL for the first four games of the 2014 season for violating the league’s Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse, the Orlando Sentinel reports.
Jordan is allowed to participate in training camp and the preseason, but will not be able to play until Week 6, as the Dolphins have a bye in Week 5.
“I recently learned from the NFL I tested positive for stimulants that are banned under the NFL policy. I worked carefully with my advisors and the union to investigate the test results, and I take full responsibility for the test results,” Jordan said in a prepared statement released by the team. “I’m very sorry for the impact of this situation on my teammates, coaches, Steve Ross, and the entire Dolphins organization, fans and my family.”
Jordan was the third overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft.
