Josh Gordon's application for reinstatement denied by NFL

Josh Gordon's application for reinstatement denied by NFL

Gordon hasn't played in a regular-season game since 2014 because of suspensions for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy.

According to USA TODAY's Tom Pelissero, Gordon's application for reinstatement to the National Football League was denied this week with his next application window being kicked out to this fall. Although he'll get a chance to apply to be reinstated again in the fall, there's not much time for his situation to change. After being reinstated previous year and participating in the preseason, Gordon made a decision to check himself into rehabilitation for his drug problem. As he was set to return in Week 5, he entered rehab instead, and didn't play during the year. The wide receiver remains suspended indefinitely after failing the league's substance abuse policy multiple times.

In just 10 games in 2013, Gordon produced 87 receptions for 1,646 yards and nine touchdowns. The Browns selected him in the second round of the 2012 supplemental draft. He hasn't appeared in a regular-season game since December 21, 2014, and it's unknown whether Commissioner Roger Goodell will ever reinstate him.

According to the Mets' schedule, Harvey would be back in action on May 10 when the team goes up against the San Francisco Giants. Harvey's suspension is the latest blow for the Mets, who have been plagued with injuries this season.

I know the history but I believe this is an exciting team", Pochettino said. From the beginning we ran after the game, we ran after the score.

Gordon applied for reinstatement from his indefinite suspension in early March, and reports indicated that he expected to hear back from the league in late April or early May. "Our decision with Josh is just understanding where he is in this process and being able to have him", Brown said. And I think after today, today is really the last Josh Gordon comment I want to make about that.

"But we're not in a position at wide receiver to turn down a guy like Josh if we feel like he's settled himself". Although Commissioner Roger Goodell conditionally reinstated him for last season, he was suspended for the first four games.

Regardless, Brown said he would need to see Gordon "settled" to consider welcoming him back, and the National Football League clearly doesn't believe Gordon has reached that point.
