The Browns announced wide receiver Josh Gordon will be reinstated on a conditional basis.
Gordon will be allowed to practice with the team beginning Monday, November 20 and will be eligible to return to active status, at the team's discretion, on Monday, November 27.
Gordon was notified by Commissioner Roger Goodell on Wednesday and will be allowed to attend meetings, conditioning work and workouts.
Gordon's return will be subject to compliance with clinical and other requirements.
“As emphasized at today’s meeting, everyone – including Josh’s teammates and coaches, the Browns’ ownership and organization, the Program professionals and all of us at the league office – want him to have every opportunity to resume his career and to be successful in the NFL,” said Goodell. “Whether that happens, however, at the end of the day will depend on Josh. His commitment to sobriety and to reaching his goals in football and beyond will determine his success. It ultimately is up to Josh.”
Gordon has been suspended indefinitely since September of 2016 after multiple violations of substance abuse.
