Browns WR Josh Gordon suspended two games for drug policy violation

Jun 07, 2013 -- 4:17pm

By Tony Grossi |



Browns receiver Josh Gordon has been suspended for the first two games of the 2013 season and fined an additional two game checks for violating the NFL substance abuse policy.

Gordon had a history of positive tests for marijuana at Baylor and Utah. He was kicked out of both schools and entered the supplemental draft last summer. While those positive tests made him a high risk player, they did not carry over into the NFL. Otherwise, a source said, he could have been suspended longer, per the league’s drug policy.

According to a statement from the NFL, Gordon will be eligible to return to the Browns’ active roster on Monday, September 16 following the team’s September 15 game against the Baltimore Ravens.

Gordon is eligible to participate in all preseason practices and games.

More to come.
