Browns WR Josh Gordon returned to action on Sunday and recorded four receptions on 11 targets for 85 yards receiving and no touchdowns.
According to Gordon, it was a “great feeling” to be back on the playing field after missing the past years while he was suspended indefinitely.
“I feel free when I’m out there,” Gordon said, via Cleveland.com. “My business is out there, people know what I’m about and that’s a great feeling.”
Browns HC Hue Jackson added that Gordon “looked like he belonged” out there on Sunday.
“He made some plays,’‘ said Jackson. “It was his first game back and it looked like he belonged. He has some rust that he needs to knock off, but I thought he competed.”
“This is just a start for Josh,” Jackson added. “It’s practice time, it’s time on task, time with the quarterbacks, time within the system and keep going from there.”
Chiefs HC Andy Reid told reporters after Sunday’s loss to the Jets that he made the decision to sit veteran CB Darrelle Revis in the second half because of the number of snaps he played in the first half.
“I took him out for the second half only because of the number of snaps,” Reid said, via the Kansas City Star. “He was up to 39 snaps, and that’s plenty for him. He’s getting back into the game.”
Revis admitted he was still trying to “dust off the cobwebs” after sitting out most of the season.
“I was trying to dust off the cobwebs,” Revis said. “I haven’t played in 12 months, so I’m getting back into the mix of things.”
