Return of Josh Gordon: Browns WR back vs. Chargers


Josh Gordon could make his long-awaited return to the field this week.

Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon is eligible to play Sunday against the Chargers. If he does, it will be his first regular-season game since 2014. Despite the long layoff, Cleveland head coach Hue Jackson is excited to get the former All-Pro back on the field.

"My plans for him? Oh boy, let me tell you," Jackson said, according to ESPN. "I have big plans for him, I plan on playing and playing as much as I can."

Gordon, who returned to training for the first time this season last week, must be activated by the Browns before December 4.

A series of drug suspensions have kept Gordon out of action since 2014. He seemed close to returning last season, but abruptly entered rehab on the eve of the regular season. In a recent interview with GQ Gordon confessed that he had smoked marijuana and drunk alcohol before "probably all games" in college and the NFL.

Whether this week or next, Gordon's return will be a blessing to a Cleveland receiving corps with a great lack of talent. Running back Duke Johnson leads the Browns with 50 receptions for 446 yards. Ricardo Louis leads all wide receivers of the Browns with only 26 receptions and 322 yards in 11 games.
