08/27/16 - Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon, in his first live NFL action since Week 15 of the 2014 season, caught a 44-yard pass down the right sideline from Robert Griffin III on the Browns' second play of the game and a 43-yard touchdown in the second quarter in the 30-13 loss to the Bucs. The two catches were Gordon's only two targets. Gordon had been suspended indefinitely by the NFL since February 2015 without pay for multiple violations of the NFL-NFLPA Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse. Gordon was reinstated on July 25 by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell but he will be suspended for the first four games of the regular season. He missed the first two preseason games with a quadriceps injury.

Gordon's participation in practice was his first since December 2014. The 25-year-old had been reinstated from a one-year suspension on July 25, but a quad injury kept him on the sideline for an additional two weeks.
Gordon has run afoul from the NFL due to multiple violations of the league's substance-abuse policy. He also will sit out the first four games of the upcoming season, although coach Hue Jackson told reporters that he has yet to decide if Gordon will play against Atlanta in Thursday's preseason contest.

Gordon may join the team at training camp, which starts Thursday, and participate in meetings, conditioning work and similar activities. He will be permitted to participate in all preseason activities, including practices and games.
"With the league's decision to afford Josh the opportunity to resume his career, he will be with us for the start of training camp," Browns executive vice president of football operations Sashi Brown said in a statement. "At that time, we will discuss directly with Josh the direction of our team, our expectations of our players and a plan to support him on and off the field."
Gordon had been suspended indefinitely since February 2015 without pay for multiple violations of the NFL-NFLPA Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse.
"As we discussed at our (July 19) meeting, as Commissioner, I want nothing more than to see you turn your circumstances around and succeed," Goodell wrote in a letter to Gordon. "Countless others including your agent, teammates and coaches, (Browns owner Jimmy) Haslam and the leadership of the organization, the Program professionals and Jim Brown also have pledged to provide you with every resource at their disposal. But as you acknowledged, ultimately, your future is your responsibility. I have every belief that you can make the right choices, but it will be up to you to do so."
