Browns WR Josh Gordon reinstated by National Football League on conditional basis

The Browns announced wide receiver Josh Gordon will be reinstated on a conditional basis.

Off the field issues have overshadowed Gordon's early success in the NFL. He will be put on the commissioner's exempt list and is permitted to practice with the team beginning on Monday, Nov. 20. He has 161 career receptions for 2, 754 yards and 14 touchdowns over three seasons, but hasn't played since the end of the 2014 season. Gordon would then be eligible on November 27, at the team's discretion, to return to active status or to remain on the commissioner's exempt list for an additional week before returning to active status.

Gordon, 26, has not played in a game since December 21, 2014.?Gordon had been suspended indefinitely since September 2016 without pay for multiple violations of the NFL's substance abuse policy. "The personal well-being of all our players is of the utmost importance to us".


Gordon has been suspended indefinitely since September 2016, without pay, for multiple violations of the National Football League and NFLPA policy and program for substances of abuse.

But if you're an owner who doesn't have a clear path to the playoffs, acquiring Gordon now could prove detrimental since he'll be sitting idly by and collecting dust on the bench until he's cleared for a return to game action just before the fantasy postseason begins. The 26-year-old receiver was a second-round pick of the Browns in the 2012 supplemental draft. Per Schefter, Gordon will be able to return to action on November 27, which will at most give Gordon five games left to play in 2017.

Gordon, 26, has not played in a regular-season National Football League game since 2014.
