Ruling In Josh Gordon Appeal Hearing May Not Come Until Next Week

 

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that a verdict in Browns WR Josh Gordon‘s appeal hearing may not come until the end of next week.

Once the hearing concluded, reports indicated that a ruling was expected to come in a “reasonable time,” but it looks like it’s going to take at least a few weeks before we know how many games Gordon will miss.

In the event that the league’s yer-long suspension stands, it would actually benefit Gordon to start serving it right now, so that he could at least be back in time for part of the preseason next year.

Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer previously reported that the Browns are bracing themselves for Gordon to receive “at least” an eight-game suspension.

Gordon and his attorney’s maintain that his positive test was triggered by second-hand smoke and point to the fact that he has passed 70 drug tests since 2012.

Last year, Gordon caught 87 receptions for 1,646 yards receiving and and nine touchdowns over the course of 14 games.

Well have more regarding Gordon as the news is available.
