(Reuters) - Miami Dolphins defensive end Dion Jordan, the third overall draft pick in 2013, has been suspended without pay by the NFL for the first four games of the season for taking performance-enhancing drugs, the team said on Thursday. Jordan, who was drafted by Miami out of the University of Oregon, apologized for the impact his positive test would have on the entire Dolphins organization. "I recently learned from the NFL that I tested positive for stimulants that are banned under the NFL policy," he said in a statement. "I take full responsibility for the test results." Jordan, who had two sacks for Miami in his rookie season, will miss games against the New England Patriots, Buffalo Bills, Kansas City Chiefs and Los Angeles Raiders.
