Cleveland Browns receiver Josh Gordon has been activated from the non-football injury list and will likely begin practicing Monday, the team announced.

Gordon has been on the NFI list since late July, when he was reinstated from his NFL suspension for violating the league’s substance abuse policy.

The 25-year-old took part in team walkthroughs on Sunday and will practice on Monday for the first time since December 2014.

Coach Hue Jackson has yet to decide if Gordon will be available to play in the team’s preseason game against the Falcons on Thursday.

“That is to be determined,'' Jackson said according to Cleveland.com. "I don't think it will be about conditioning. Our process has gotten him where he needs to be. He's been doing more things, more and more and more each week.”

Gordon still needs to serve a four-game suspension to start the season before he will be eligible to play in a regular season game.
