According to Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com, Cleveland Browns head coach Hue Jackson expects wide receiver Josh Gordon to be ready to start practicing on November 20th.
Gordon, who was reinstated by the NFL back on November 1st, on a conditional basis was denied by the league back in May. However, on the conditional basis Gordon will not be eligible to return to game action until week 13.
An unfamiliar feeling for Gordon who hasn’t played since 2014 as he’s been suspended by the NFL for violating the league’s substance abuse policy three times and was suspended by the Browns once for violating team rules. Though, the Browns are hoping to get a boost despite the three year absence as talent isn’t a question with Gordon. Catching 50 passes for 805 yards and five touchdowns in his rookie season and then 87 receptions for a league-leading 1,646 yards and nine scores in his second season.
Gordon has been working hard and he’s always has a smile on his face Jackson also added Thursday.
