ESPN's Adam Schefter reports suspended WR Josh Gordon was released from a rehab facility last week.
Schefter reports the treatment was the most intensive Gordon has gone through, and a source said the receiver is doing "a lot better." Gordon remains suspended indefinitely by the league, and the Browns have already made it clear they are moving on. They could possibly trade him before Tuesday's deadline, but it is doubtful another team is willing to give up real assets to acquire a headache likely will not be reinstated this season. Perhaps this situation gains some clarity early this week, but it remains likely he misses the rest of the season. Oct 30 - 8:40 AM

Suspended WR Josh Gordon remains banned indefinitely until further notice from the NFL.

Gordon checked himself into rehab a few days ago after a recent "slip-up" with alcohol. On indefinite suspension, Gordon isn't allowed to drink or do any other drugs. We're no longer going to hold our breath waiting for Gordon to play football again. His off-field life is a mess that needs fixing first.
Oct 3 - 6:30 PM

Appearing on Sunday NFL Countdown, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Browns were trying to trade suspended WR Josh Gordon as recently as last week.

The Browns were reportedly asking for as high as a first-round pick. Those plans are obviously out the window now that Gordon has checked himself into rehab after a recent "slip-up." According to the Cleveland Plan Dealer, Gordon entered rehab because of an alcohol problem. Somehow still 25 years old, Gordon is expected to be let go by the Browns in the not-so-distant future.

The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports Josh Gordon checked himself into rehab for an alcohol problem.

The bad news is Gordon probably won't be playing pro football this season. The good news is he's taken the first step in recovery, acknowledging that he has a problem with alcohol. We wish Gordon the best in his road to health.

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Josh Gordon entered rehab after a recent "slip-up."

This "slip-up" may have been a violation of the league's alcohol and drug policy. It's unclear if Gordon will face another suspension when he returns from rehab or who he'll be playing for when that happens. The Browns have reportedly washed their hands of Gordon after giving him endless opportunities to clean up his act. Gordon is an immense talent and still just 25 years old but it's anyone's guess if he'll be able to revive his career or get his substance abuse issues under control.

A TSA spokesperson from Cleveland International Airport denies a report Josh Gordon was caught with a pound of marijuana when trying to go through airport security on Thursday.

A report of Gordon's detainment originally appeared on Scout.com, but has been refuted. The story has since been deleted by Scout.com. Regardless, Gordon checked himself into a rehab facility on Thursday and the Browns have washed their hands of him. We don't expect Gordon to play football in 2016.
Sep 30 - 1:20 PM

When asked about suspended WR Josh Gordon on Friday, coach Hue Jackson said, "We're moving on. We need to close that chapter right now."

"Today really is the last Josh Gordon comment I want to make," Jackson said. "What's best for our football team is that we move on." Gordon was scheduled to come off suspension on Monday, but he checked into rehab Thursday, leaving his status with the league in question. The Browns are fed up and reportedly are done giving Gordon chances. He's unlikely to play in 2016.
Sep 30 - 12:14 PM

Both the Cleveland Plain Dealer and Akron Beacon-Journal believe Josh Gordon has played his last snap for the Browns.

Per the Beacon-Journal's Nate Ulrich, Gordon is "not expected to receive another shot with this regime." Gordon has been given 10th and 11th chances by the Browns, and burned them every time. It's good to see Gordon trying to get his life in order by checking into rehab, but he's lucky to have lasted as long as he did in Cleveland. Gordon is still somehow only 25 years old, but he's dangerously close to forcing his way out of the league.
Sep 29 - 6:02 PM

Suspended WR Josh Gordon has decided to enter an in-person rehab facility, and will not return to the Browns when first eligible in week 5.

"After careful thought and deep consideration I’ve decided that I need to step away from pursuing my return to the Browns and my football career to enter an in-patient rehabilitation facility," Gordon said in a statement. "This is the right decision for me and one that I hope will enable me to gain full control of my life and continue on a path to reach my full potential as a person." It's unknown when Gordon will return to the team, but fantasy owners should proceed as if he won't play in 2016. There have been no indications Gordon is facing further suspension. An All-Pro in 2013, Gordon has made only five appearances since. His extended absence locks in Terrelle Pryor as the Browns' No. 1 receiver.

Suspended WR Josh Gordon's warrant for a paternity test has been rescinded after he complied with a year-old court order to have his DNA examined.

Per Gordon's attorneys, their client was "unaware" the request was ever made before Wednesday, at which national reports of Gordon's non-compliance surfaced. A hearing has been scheduled for November 8. An NFL spokesman said Wednesday that the situation would have no effect on Gordon's bid for reinstatement to pro football, which remains on track for Week 5.

An NFL spokesman told the Cleveland Plain Dealer's Mary Kay Cabot that suspended WR Josh Gordon remains on track to return Week 5 despite an arrest warrant being issued for him in Cleveland on Wednesday.

The warrant has nothing to do with Gordon's suspension and is expected to be settled either in or out of court. It's still troubling that Gordon is even continuing to have off-field matters creep up in his life. Gordon can't be trusted in Dynasty leagues, and whatever we get from him is viewed as a bonus.
Sep 21 - 2:11 PM

The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports suspended WR Josh Gordon has a warrant out for his arrest after he failed to respond to subpoenas in a paternity case.

A female by the name of Christina Lockhart says Gordon is the father of her one-year-old daughter, and she is seeking child support. Authorities have allegedly been trying to get in contact with Gordon for months regarding the matter, but Gordon has failed to respond. He was ordered to provide a DNA sample in September 2015 but never did. Any off-field incident is bad news for Gordon.

Josh Gordon caught 2-of-2 targets for 87 yards and one touchdown in the Browns' third preseason game against the Bucs.

It was Gordon's first game action of any kind since Week 16 of the 2014 season. On his first target, Gordon ran right by Brent Grimes on a double-move for a 44-yard pickup. He then closed out the first half with a 43-yard touchdown over the top of Grimes on a ball he fought to come back to over the smaller corner. Gordon worked as the No. 3 receiver behind Corey Coleman and Terrelle Pryor, but he vastly outperformed the two youngsters. Gordon will probably get some more run in the preseason finale before serving his four-game suspension to open the season. If Friday night is any indication, Gordon looked like his old self.
Aug 26 - 10:22 PM

NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports the Browns were asking for a "second-round pick and then some" in exchange for suspended WR Josh Gordon.

No team is going to give that up for Gordon, who is suspended for the first four games and is another strike away from an indefinite ban. The Browns have denied they're looking to deal Gordon. They'd be lucky to get more than a conditional fourth- or fifth-round pick. After missing the early part of camp due to a pulled quad, Gordon will make his preseason debut Friday night.

Browns EVP Sashi Brown the team is "not looking to trade" Josh Gordon.

ESPN Cleveland's Tony Grossi reported Wednesday there is a "cynical point of view out there" that the Browns leaked a report about trade offers for Gordon in order to drum up more interest. Brown said he was not going to "entertain" that "speculation." It is important to note, however, Brown did say every player has a price, and saying the team is "not looking to trade" is considerably different than saying Gordon will not be traded. Gordon will most likely stay in Cleveland, but it is not a given.
