The Sun Sentinel’s Omar Kelly says the team is trying not to overload Jordan.
We’ve obviously taken some precaution as we move forward with Dion, not wanting to overload him,” Coyle said of Dion 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 had surgery on his shoulder back in February so it is smart for the team to take it easy on him at least until the season starts.
