Reshad Jones and Dion Jordan are both suspended for the first four games of the season so that means they'll be watching the Dolphins vs. Patriots game from home on Sunday. For them, it's disappointing but they realize they put themselves in this position.
"It's going to be tough on me," Jones told the Sun-Sentinel, "but I'm definitely going to watch the games. I've got a trainer, we're on a four-week plan. We're going to be here working out every day and doing everything possible to better myself in the time off. I'll come back with fresh legs and ready to go. I think this is a Pro Bowl season still for me. That was my goal this year, and I think I can still come back and make that happen."
Jordan put in a lot of hard this offseason only to see it put on the shelf for the first four week of the season and of course, he wishes it could be different.
"It's really tough missing out on all the work I put in leading up to this point, It's unfortunate, but at the same time I understand the situation I'm in, and I have to deal with the consequences. I'll definitely find a defensive line coach, somebody to make sure I stay up on my technique," he said. "Also, I've got to find a way to keep my head in the (play) books so I don't lose that stuff, which is important."
"It hurts," Jones said, "but I'm not going to hold my head down. I'm going to walk with my head up and my chest out because I know there can be some good out of this. I know I can play football at the end of the day, and I'm going to help this team win when I get back."
