Report: NFL will not announce Josh Gordon decision this week Photo:

The result of Josh Gordon's appeal of a one-year suspension for a positive drug test will not be announced this week, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com.

Gordon's appeal reportedly focused on the NFL's drug testing procedure, in which two urine samples are tested for drugs. In Gordon's case, only one of the samples was positive, and it was just barely over the threshold. ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that Gordon argued the positive test was the result of second-hand smoke.
