DAVIE (CBSMiami) — The NFL announced on Friday that suspended Miami Dolphins defensive end Dion Jordan has been reinstated.

The league made it official while the Dolphins were on the practice field for the first day of training camp.

Jordan was suspended indefinitely in April of 2015 after failing his third drug test.

He was available for reinstatement on April 28th of this year but after that date it was up to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell as to when the suspension could be lifted.

Jordan can now rejoin the Dolphins and immediately participate in training camp meetings and conditioning work.

According to the NFL, the reinstatement is conditional.

Jordan can participate in practices and preseason games once arrangements are made for clinical resources, meaning he will continue to be tested and will meet with counselors.

Jordan will again have to meet with the NFL before the regular season and if he has complied with his program, he will be eligible to play Week 1.

Miami selected Jordan with the 3rd overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft.

He has not played since the 2014 season and has been suspended three times during his brief NFL career.
