    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon will remain on the NFL's Reserve/Suspended list pending further notice. Gordon recently checked himself into a rehabilitation facility.

    Huddle Up: Gordon's future in Cleveland is all but over, and he may not play in a professional football game ever again. Terrelle Pryor remains the only fantasy relevant receiver for the Browns for the time being, but Corey Coleman will make a nice No. 2 when he returns from injury. Their ceiling is lowered with Cody Kessler at the helm, although Pryor has played like a low-end WR1 to high-end WR2 the last two weeks with Kessler.

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon is expected to be released shortly in the wake of his announcement Thursday, Sept. 29, that he will an in-patient rehabilitation facility and after head coach Hue Jackson suggested the team was looking to move forward without the troubled receiver. 'We wish him well. We need to close that chapter right now. We're moving on,' Jackson said Friday, Sept. 30.

    Huddle Up: It seems hard to believe a single team isn't willing to part with the conditional seventh-rounder to land Gordon, but the Browns may simply want to move on with their rebuilding process as quickly as possible. The supremely talented receiver will almost certainly get another shot, but let's first hope he can get his life in order first. He should be considered out indefinitely.

  • Posted: 9/29/2016 3:45pm ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon's career with the team is 'likely over,' as he's not expected to receive another shot with this regime.

    Huddle Up: Gordon has been given several chances in Cleveland to stay out of trouble, but unfortunately, the talented wide-out just hasn't been able to abide. There's no doubt he'd get another shot elsewhere if the Browns do dispose of him, but who knows when that will be with the 25-year-old just checking into rehab. Whenever Gordon is able to emerge from this, he's still capable of being a force again.

  • Posted: 9/29/2016 2:42pm ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon announced Thursday, Sept. 29, that he is stepping away from pursuing his return to football in order to enter a rehabilitation facility.

    Huddle Up: Whether or not Gordon's football career is completely over remains to be seen, but the prospect of him playing in 2016 doesn't sound promising. Terrelle Pryor will continue to be the best fantasy option in Cleveland's passing game with Gordon not returning and has WR2 appeal for the rest of the season. Aside from Pryor, Corey Coleman, when he makes a healthy return, and Gary Barnidge are really the only other startable pass-catchers going forward for the Browns.

  • Posted: 9/21/2016 10:40pm ET

    An arrest warrant for Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon was withdrawn after the receiver complied with a year-old court order to take a DNA test in a paternity suit. In a statement, Gordon's attorneys said he was unaware until noon Wednesday, Sept. 21, that he had been requested to take the test.

    Huddle Up: Gordon remains on track for a return from his four-game suspension in Week 5. He might have a little rust initially, but he has WR2 upside if he can get up to speed quickly.

  • Posted: 9/21/2016 11:27am ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon is still on track to return for the team's Week 5 game even though a warrant has been issued for his arrest stemming from a paternity case, according to an NFL spokesperson.

    Huddle Up: Gordon should have a role in the passing game when he returns, but he may be a risky option because of his latest off-field incident. Gordon could be a No. 3 receiver in leagues starting Week 5 with a chance to be more valuable depending on his play.

  • Posted: 8/26/2016 9:04pm ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon caught two passes for 87 yards and a touchdown in a 30-13 preseason loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Friday, Aug. 26.

    Huddle Up: Gordon reminded fantasy owners of his upside, and he is a high-risk, high-reward option to target in the middle rounds. He could end up providing WR2 numbers for a discounted price.

  • Posted: 8/26/2016 8:23am ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon was part of trade discussions, and the package Cleveland sought was a second-round pick and more, according to sources. The team denied listening to offers.

    Huddle Up: Gordon will miss the first four games, but his masterful 2013 season is still fresh in people's minds. The risk and reward is vast, and while it may be tough to do, he's best pegged as a WR3.

  • Posted: 8/25/2016 5:37pm ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon said he wants to stay put, while the team has said there are no plans to trade the 25-year-old wideout. 'Listening (to trade offers) is probably a mischaracterization,' said Browns executive vice president of football operations Sashi Brown. 'We've said all we needed to say about it. We're not looking to trade Josh.'

    Huddle Up: It appears unless an offer comes along that completely wows Browns management, Gordon is indeed going nowhere. He's slated to serve a four-game suspension to begin the campaign, but once he's done with that, Gordon will have WR1 potential. At the same time, owners shouldn't be surprised if he ultimately settles in as a solid WR2 due to the rust he'll probably be dealing with after only playing in five games the past two seasons.

  • Posted: 8/24/2016 9:07am ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon (quadriceps) will play against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Friday, Aug. 26, according to head coach Hue Jackson.

    Huddle Up: Gordon will miss the first four games of the season due to a suspension, but he projects to return to a starting role once eligible in Week 5. He's two years removed from his dominant 2013 campaign, but fantasy owners shouldn't count out WR2 numbers from Gordon once he's back on the field. He's an enticing risk to take in the middle rounds of drafts once you're comfortable with your core selections.

  • Posted: 8/23/2016 5:52am ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon has had multiple teams call the Browns inquiring about his availability, according to sources. A team source said the Browns aren't looking to trade Gordon, and many around the league believe head coach Hue Jackson is the right coach for Gordon to thrive with.

    Huddle Up: Gordon will miss the first four games of the season, but Joe Haden raved about how well Gordon looks in practice as if he hasn't missed a step from a long hiatus. Gordon is a low-end WR2, but he makes a dynamite WR3 as the risk and reward are pretty high.

  • Posted: 8/22/2016 6:53am ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon (quadriceps) is running with the first-team offense in practice Monday, Aug. 22.

    Huddle Up: Gordon will be suspended the first four games of the season, and there's some uncertainty as to how productive he'll be after such a long layoff. He's a boom-or-bust WR2 in fantasy, but you can't go wrong with him as a third receiver.

  • Posted: 8/22/2016 5:24am ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon (quadriceps) is likely to play his first preseason game Friday, Aug. 26. 'He still looks the exact same and it's just crazy,'' CB Joe Haden said. 'He looks a little bigger. I don't know how that happened, but he's still out there running around, looking the same, running his routes, floating. It still looks effortless.''

    Huddle Up: Gordon will be suspended the first four games of the season, and there's some uncertainty as to how productive he'll be after such a long layoff. He's a boom-or-bust WR2 in fantasy, but you can't go wrong with him as a third receiver.

  • Posted: 8/21/2016 6:40pm ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon was about 10 pounds overweight after missing time with a quadriceps injury, but beat writer Mary Kay Cabot said the weight is already coming off now that he is back practicing.

    Huddle Up: It remains to be seen if Gordon can return to the form he showed before his career was derailed by suspensions, but there is no denying the talent. He is worth gambling on in the middle rounds as a WR4.

  • Posted: 8/21/2016 9:37am ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon (quadriceps) hopefully will be able to participate in practice this week, according to head coach Hue Jackson.

    Huddle Up: Gordon has been dealing with the injury throughout training camp but appears to be close to returning. He has been suspended for the first four games of the 2016 season but still has plenty of value in fantasy leagues. He should be considered a No. 3 or No. 4 receiver in most fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 8/18/2016 11:14am ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon (quadriceps) is not expected to play in the preseason game against the Atlanta Falcons Thursday, Aug. 18.

    Huddle Up: Gordon has been dealing with a quadriceps injury and only returned to practice earlier in the week, so he probably will need to practice more before playing in a game. Gordon will miss the first four games because of a suspension but should have a decent role when he returns. Gordon has a chance to be a No. 3 or No. 4 receiver in fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 8/15/2016 12:33pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon (quadriceps) is not expected to miss much practice time with a strained quadriceps muscle, according to Browns head coach Hue Jackson.

    Huddle Up: Strains and dings are to be expected from a player who has been away from the team as much as Gordon. Even with a four-game suspension, he's a high-upside WR3 in fantasy drafts.

  • Posted: 8/15/2016 9:08am ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon (quadriceps) took part in the walkthrough portion of practice Sunday, Aug. 14.

    Huddle Up: Gordon reported to camp out of shape in the eyes of head coach Hue Jackson and quickly pulled his quad shortly thereafter. The enigmatic playmaker will serve a four-game suspension to begin the season and may be asked to play second fiddle to Corey Coleman in the passing game if the rookie can get off to a good enough start. With Terrelle Pryor also looking like he may be an option in the Browns' run-heavy attack, it seems unlikely Gordon will live up to his sixth-round ADP in PPR formats.

  • Posted: 8/8/2016 10:04pm ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon (quadriceps) will hopefully return to practice soon, according to head coach Hue Jackson, but Jackson said Gordon would be the first to say he needs to lose some weight.

    Huddle Up: Gordon hasn't played since 2014 and now he's dealing with a quad injury. It's exciting for fantasy owners to have Gordon back but we need to have realistic expectations. The Josh Gordon who posted a 87/1,646/9 line in 2013 isn't walking through the door this season. Gordon currently has an ADP in Round 7.

  • Posted: 7/25/2016 4:06pm ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon is being reinstated by the NFL conditionally, according to a source. He will be suspended for the first four games of the season.

    Huddle Up: Huge news for Browns fans and a chance to almost certainly overdraft the wideout who has not played since 2014 and only had five games that year. His last and only big season was in 2013. He'll be a plus to the mix for Cleveland assuming he is still in reasonably good shape. But it is an entirely new Browns offense and scheme that he greets him.

  • Posted: 7/22/2016 1:44pm ET

    Updating previous reports, Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon has no timetable for a decision on his potential reinstatement, but one source said it isn't expected for at least six weeks.

    Huddle Up: In other words, if you're taking a late-round flyer on Gordon somehow playing this year, it is as advertised: A late-round flyer.

  • Posted: 7/20/2016 1:00am ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon would be welcomed back by the team if he is reinstated after eligible to apply Aug. 1, according to beat writer Mary Kay Cabot. Head coach Hue Jackson has said everyone will begin with a clean slate and that includes Gordon.

    Huddle Up: If it were any other team but the Browns, things might be different, but this is a franchise that is barren as they come when it comes to talented skill-position players.

  • Posted: 6/2/2016 4:08pm ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon has received help for his off-field issues, according to team official Jim Brown. 'His way of expressing himself, the responsibility he was taking made me feel really very motivated about his chance of getting back,'' Brown said.

    Huddle Up: Gordon, who was suspended last season and has only played in five games since his huge 2013 season, is now working toward Aug. 1 when he can once again apply for reinstatement.

  • Posted: 5/12/2016 10:29am ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon may not have a roster spot to return to if he's reinstated after the team drafted four wide receivers in the 2016 NFL Draft. The new regime in the front office has also said that high-character players were something they stressed in the draft.

    Huddle Up: Given Gordon's track record there was no way the new regime could count on anything from him going forward. If he does get reinstated he could be given a chance to rejoin the team, but more likely the Browns are moving on and would see if they could get anything in a trade before releasing him into free agency.

  • Posted: 4/15/2016 10:44pm ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon's agent, Drew Rosenhaus, said he is confident that Gordon will play in the NFL this year.

    Huddle Up: If he does, it won't be without getting a huge benefit of the doubt from the NFL after reports surfaced this week about another failed drug test.

  • Posted: 4/14/2016 9:45am ET

    Updating a previous report, Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon will be able to reapply for reinstatement Aug. 1, according to a source. Gordon's application for reinstatement was denied Tuesday, April 12.

    Huddle Up: Raise your hand if you think the NFL is eagerly awaiting that date so they can rush Gordon back to the league. Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?

  • Posted: 4/12/2016 5:16pm ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon's petition for reinstatement from his indefinite drug ban was denied by the NFL, according to a source. Gordon will be able to apply for reinstatement Aug. 1.

    Huddle Up: This surely has to signal the end of the troubled and short-lived Gordon Era in Cleveland as the wideout has clearly demonstrated his recreational drug use is more important than football.

  • Posted: 4/12/2016 10:32am ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon's potential reinstatement decision has been delayed until the NFL feels more comfortable. He has 60 to 90 days to steer clear of red flags, according to a league source.

    Huddle Up: It's been reported that Gordon failed another drug test last month when the test showed a diluted sample and traces of marijuana. There is no way either the Browns nor fantasy owners should be counting on Gordon in the near future

  • Posted: 3/24/2016 10:21am ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon's reinstatement issue hasn't been decided upon, according to commissioner Roger Goodell. Goodell said he'll seek an update next week.

    Huddle Up: The league is in no rush with Gordon, which is certainly frustrating for dynasty owners. However, some sort of resolution would be nice for everyone involved, allowing the Browns to move forward with their rebuild and dynasty owners to free up a roster spot.

  • Posted: 3/22/2016 10:23am ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon has applied for reinstatement, but the NFL has stated that they will rule on Gordon's status when appropriate. The Browns are not counting on Gordon for the 2016 season because they do not know when he will be reinstated and are not sure of his mental status at this point.

    Huddle Up: Wise of the Browns to not bank on Gordon, as they have no idea what sort of football shape he's in after a season away--and that's in addition to all off the off-field issues. Fantasy owners need to treat Gordon the same way, as he's not going to walk right back to the level he played at in 2013.

  • Posted: 2/25/2016 6:46pm ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon is on the right path, and signs are pointing towards him being reinstated, according to executive vice president Sashi Brown. Brown also said there's a spot on the roster for Gordon 'if he's doing the right things.'

    Huddle Up: With Gordon's trade value rather low, the Browns seem to be leaning on giving the troubled wideout one more chance to prove he's truly on the right path. Definitely a sleeper fantasy pick if there ever was one.

  • Posted: 2/7/2016 12:32pm ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon must convince NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell he won't slip up again in the future in order to be reinstated. 'Our No. 1 issue here is to prevent these things from happening,' Goodell said Friday, Feb. 5. 'I'm hopeful that Josh understands that he's going to have to conduct himself differently going forward to be a member of the NFL and to be representing the Cleveland Browns, or any team in the NFL.'

    Huddle Up: Oddly, Gordon's troubles have been put in the back-burner and even pale in comparison to that of current Browns QB Johnny Manziel. Gordon, though, has served his time and look for him to be reinstated for the 2016 season.

  • Posted: 2/2/2016 10:00am ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon said he plans to 'disassociate' himself from those that could be contributing to keeping him out of the NFL. Gordon has been suspended a year for multiple violations of the league's substance abuse policy, and he recently applied for reinstatement. NFL commissioner Roger Goodell will make a decision within 60 days of Gordon's application.

    Huddle Up: By most accounts Gordon has stayed on the straight and narrow during his suspension, and he's saying all the right things as he looks to be reinstated. The Browns could do him a favor by ridding the roster of Johnny Manziel, who looks to be exactly the kind of element Gordon needs to 'disassociate' himself from.

  • Posted: 1/20/2016 9:20am ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon has applied for reinstatement to the league, confirmed a source with knowledge of the process who requested anonymity because of the league's confidentiality rules. Gordon's fate will be known within 60 days of the receipt of his application, per rules of the reinstatement process. He is under the Browns' control for 2016. If reinstated, Gordon can become a restricted free-agent in 2017.

    Huddle Up: That timetable puts a decision on Gordon well in advance of the 2016 Draft, so the Browns can plan accordingly re: a quarterback to throw to Gordon and/or more receivers to replace/compliment Gordon. Gordon flashed in 2013 but was mostly ordinary in a brief 2014 appearance, and he'll be playing for a contract as a potential 2017 free agent if he's cleared to return next season.

  • Posted: 12/17/2015 8:07am ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon is eligible to apply for reinstatement Feb. 3, a year after his indefinite drug ban was announced by the National Football League. According to sources Gordon is doing 'outstanding.'

    Huddle Up: The Browns could sure use a playmaking receiver like Gordon. Oh yeah, and a quarterback to get him the ball. Maybe Johnny Manziel will do?
