The May 11th suspension the Miami Dolphins slapped on Safety Don Jones was short-lived, as the Dolphins just reinstated him to the team. Jones was suspended after allegedly Twitter-bashing Michael Sam, the first openly gay NFL player, following Sam’s celebratory kiss when he was drafted by the St. Louis Rams.

Per Fox Sports

The Dolphins announced May 11 that Jones was fined and indefinitely excused from their offseason workout program. Jones posted the phrases “OMG” (Oh My God) and “horrible” when televised draft coverage showed Sam kissing his boyfriend after his seventh-round selection.

Jones has since apologized through the Dolphins media relations department for comments he called “inappropriate.”
