Josh Gordon was released from rehab but remains suspended
Browns receiver Josh Gordon was released from a rehab facility in New Hampshire last week after a 30-day stay, according to multiple reports. ESPN’s Adam Schefter was first to report the news.
When Gordon went to rehab, he was not reinstated by the league and he remains indefinitely suspended.
The Browns would like to trade the troubled wideout before Tuesday’s deadline, Schefter reports.
Gordon entered rehab last month when he was just one week away from returning from a four-game alcohol-related suspension. Cleveland.com’s Mary Kay Cabot reports that Gordon’s most recent rehab stint was “primarily for an alcohol problem.”
Browns head coach Hue Jackson said after Gordon went to rehab that the team plans to part ways with Gordon.
Gordon led the NFL in receiving yards in 2013 but has appeared in just five games since due to a variety of drug and alcohol suspensions.
