Have watched Jordan play since he was a Junior at Bingham. He has always been a stud. I hope he can make his way into the NFL as he has the talent and body... but has been injury prone. Good luck Jordy, you have been a pleasure to watch!

Really tough news. Jordan has given everything he had to the BYU program. He's a true linebacker if there ever was one. He has NFL written all over him; hopefully he can get rid of his injury bug.

Just feel for the guy. It was a pleasure to watch him play in cougar blue.

Jordan single handedly made the defense better. The defense will still be good but you can't replace a player like JP.

Tough break for a great competitor; good luck Jordan in your recovery and thanks for all of your hard work.

As much as I love his heart and his obvious love of the game, I think his body is telling him enough is enough. Sadly I think his playing days are over, alhtough I do hope I am wrong.

I am not sure where he is in real terms as far as his education, but a class act by the Athletic Administration would be to make sure he has sufficient scholarship dollars to finish.....hire him as a Grad Assistant, or something like that. His play shows that he has a great understanding of the game and could potentially be a great asset to this team and future teams.

this is devastating. don't think he'll make it in the nfl though. he could do radio though with jan and the crew. i'd really love to hear him comment on stuff. however, i hear he'll be leaving on a mission soon so that's great also. best of luck to him.

Pendleton has NFL type talent but has not proven he can stay on the field for longer than 3-4 games. The kid has worked his body to the peak of its potential but unfortunately his body breaks down and is the weak link. He may have actually taken his body pasts its potential. In the NFL his body will be challenged even harder if he stays at the same position. I really think he should have tried to spend his D1 career as a Free Safety or Strong Safety. Worked on his speed and agility and tried to carry less muscle and mass. I think Bronco and BYU did this kid an injustice by moving him to Linebacker.

Your vitriol towards BYU is disgusting. I am sad to see that the DN continues to allow your comments but censors our rebuttals.

Your hate of BYU says more about your lack of character, than what you put on the boards. What we "mark down" is that you are neither an honorable person, nor someone who matters anymore.

You comments show insecurity and immaturity, instead of rooting for a team takes every possible moment to try to tear down someone elses.

If DN chooses to post this, I will never comment on your insecure blather again. I neither care what you have to say, nor do you matter to me as a person.

I suggest others to do the same.

If DN does not allow this, I probably will not comment anymore, nor read the comment boards. By allowing Chis' ilk, but not allowing us to rebuttal shows why the system is flawed.

It would be great if Bronco visibly showed the love to his bench(ed) players as much as he does to Jordan and the Golden Locks of Love. Perhaps the coach would get 110% out of the whole team instead of just a chosen few. Sad for the program that it's been set back a few years now that BYU is an option style football team. Although i must say that seems to be the way things are going in college football now thanks to Tim Tebow. So we wait until next year to see if the option style play works against Notre Dame, Georgia Tech, Utah etc.

How can such a beast at LB be so fragile?
I swear he has been out with injuries more than he has been on the field.
It's too bad, if he could have stayed healthy for his senior year, he would probably be playing in the NFL next year.

Hopefully Jordan can find his way back onto the field.

Gotta agree with Cougar Claws, that stinks for Jordan and the team. He really made some great plays for them. Someone will need to step up.

Its too bad and really unfortunate that JP has to go out this way. He is a stud on the football field and I am gonna miss seeing him play at BYU. Wish him the best and a speedy recovery, I hope he is able to play at the next level.
