Miami morning take: Unleash Dion Jordan?

Here are the most interesting Miami Dolphins stories Friday from around the web:

  • Andrew Abramson of the Palm Beach Post writes that first-round pick Dion Jordan could get more reps in his second game.

Morning take: Jordan played a lot of special-teams snaps and earned a late sack in Week 1 against the Cleveland Browns. But the Dolphins need all their speed-rushers, including Jordan, to get to Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck. Jordan could be key.

  • Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald cautions against expecting ex-Dolphin Zach Thomas to get into the Hall of Fame on his first year of eligibility.

Morning take: Thomas is up this year, but I agree with Salguero. Despite being a terrific linebacker, Thomas is not a first-ballot Hall of Famer.

Morning take: Several reporters, myself included, feel the Dolphins are primed for an upset. Miami's strengths match up well with Indianapolis, but it will come down to execution on the road.

  • Alain Poupart of Dolphins.com writes that Miami’s ground game could wake up against the Colts.

Morning take: The Dolphins are ranked last in rushing and Indianapolis is 31st in run defense after Week 1. One of these units will get its game on track Sunday.
