Browns' WR Josh Gordon suspended for violating team rules
Saturday December 27th, 2014

Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon has been suspended for violating team rules, the team announced on Saturday.

Gordon and rookie quarterback Johnny Manziel reportedly missed a team walkthrough.

Gordon made his debut this season on Nov. 23 against the Atlanta Falcons after being suspended 10 games for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy. 

Over five games this season, Gordon has caught 24 passes for 303 yards. In an interview with the NFL Network last month, Gordon said he noticed that people associated with the Browns have been treating him differently.

Last season the 23-year-old caught 87 passes for a league-leading 1,646 receiving yards and nine receiving touchdowns, and was named first-team All-Pro even though he was suspended two games.

The Browns (7-8) face the Ravens in Baltimore on Sunday.
