On Thursday, September 29th, Cleveland Browns’ wide receiver Josh Gordon announced that he will be entering a in-patient rehab facility in an effort to “gain full control of my life”. Gordon would have been eligible to play in week 5 against the New England Patriots, but his decision to enter rehab will definitely put his comeback on hold.
Gordon stated: “After careful thought and deep consideration, I’ve decided that I need to step away from pursuing my return to the Browns and my football career to enter an in-patient rehabilitation facility…This is the right decision for me and one that I hope will enable me to gain full control of my life and continue on a path to reach my full potential as a person,” Gordon stated.
This could put the Cleveland Browns in jeopardy, as they already started off 0-3. The Browns are in need of some good veteran players, especially since rookie wide receiver Cory Coleman could be out for the next three to five weeks. They will probably just have to wait for a veteran wide out, which is highly needed by them, to become available to them to make progress in the receiving game.
