Cleveland Browns receiver Josh Gordon will enter in-patient rehab, the team announced today.
The Browns and Gordon released statements on the decision:
Gordon was a week and a half away from returning to the field following a four-game suspension by the NFL. The four-game suspension followed a reinstatement by the NFL after a suspension for the entire 2015 season for testing positive for alcohol. He was suspended for 10 games in 2014 (reduced from a full year) after a drug test in which one of Gordon’s two samples tested positive for marijuana.
Gordon last played in an NFL game in December 2014.
