Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon has been activated and cleared to return to practice Monday.

Gordon, who suffered a quad injury during the offseason, had been on the non-football injury list.

It would be the first practice for the receiver since he was reinstated July 25 after serving a one-year suspension. Gordon was suspended in February 2015 after he failed a drug test. He missed the 2015 seasons for multiple violations of the league's substance abuse policy.

It is not clear whether the 25-year-old receiver will suit up Thursday when the Browns play the Atlanta Falcons in Cleveland's first home game of the 2016 season. The Browns kicked off the preseason Friday night in Green Bay. The Packers defeated the Browns 17-11.

Gordon, a 2013 Pro Bowler, hasn't played in a regular-season game since December 2014. He played in just five games in 2014.
