With the league talking with the player’s union about a new drug policy, some NFL players could potentially see their recent drug suspensions reduced or eliminated. As part of the negotiations, the union is seeking to reverse the suspensions that have been handed out this offseason, and two players who could immediately return to action are Dolphins’ defensive pieces Dion Jordan and Reshad Jones, according to Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald.
The second-year player Jordan was suspended for violating the performance-enhancing drug policy. Jones was also suspended four games for violating the same policy. It would depend on what substances these players tested positive for, but if a new agreement is reached, it’s possible that a first offense would no longer warrant a suspension.
Both players would still likely be enrolled in the league’s substance abuse program regardless of whether or not their suspensions are upheld.
