DAVIE, Fla. - Miami Dolphins first-round draft pick Dion Jordan is expected to play as a pass rusher in the season opener despite his curtailed training camp regimen, and he might also see duty on special teams.

Jordan missed the final three exhibition games because of a lingering shoulder injury. He returned to practice last week, and following Monday's workout, defensive co-ordinator Kevin Coyle said the No. 3 overall draft pick should be ready to go Sunday against Cleveland.

Jordan is expected to be used as an end in passing situations opposite Pro Bowl end Cameron Wake. Despite his curtailed practice time, Jordan said he has adjusted to lining up in a three-point stance, rather than standing up as he did playing linebacker at Oregon.
