Gordon has been reinstated following his 10-game suspension for violating the league's substance-abuse policy, NFL.com reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Per the report, Gordon has been cleared for normal activities with the Browns without restriction in advance of Week 12's game against the Falcons. Meanwhile, offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan said last week that he would be "surprised" if Gordon wasn't ready for full-time duty upon his return to the team. Such a notion should be solidified as the practice week progresses, but with the Browns coming off a 23-7 loss to the Texans on Sunday, we suspect that the team will be inclined to throw Gordon (who racked up 1,646 receiving yards in 14 games last season) right back into the mix in his first game back.
Gordon (suspension) is slated to return to the Browns on Monday, at which time he "will be clear to resume normal activities without restriction," per AFC director of football communications Jon Zimmer, ESPN.com reports.

Gordon (suspension) is expected to rejoin the Browns next Tuesday, Tony Grossi of ESPN Cleveland reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Gordon's status hasn't changed since our last update, but it's worth a reminder that the NFL's leading receiver in 2013 will soon be back in action for the Browns. Sunday's matchup with the Texans will represent the final game of his 10-game suspension for violating the league's substance-abuse policy, and he'll look to immediately return to a prominent role in the following week against the Falcons. With receiving threats Andrew Hawkins (knee/thigh) and Jordan Cameron (concussion) both sidelined from the practice field Tuesday, Gordon's return couldn't come at a better time for Brian Hoyer and the Browns. Gordon is definitely worth a speculative add if he's available, as the 6-foot-3 wideout has the potential to be a game-changer in just about all fantasy formats.
Gordon's one-year suspension for violating the league's substance abuse policy has been officially reduced to 10 games, NFL.com reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Per the Cleveland Plain Dealer, Gordon is eligible to return to action in Week 12, for the Browns' Nov. 23 contest against the Falcons. The Plain Dealer adds that the wideout is not expected to face any additional suspension stemming from a recent DWI charge. Thus, assuming no further violations of the league's substance-abuse policy, Gordon is on track to be available for the Browns' final six games.

2014

2013

The Browns took a chance on Gordon, forgoing a second-round pick to draft him in the supplemental round last year, and it panned out. Gordon managed a robust 8.5 YPT and 16.1 YPC on a below-average passing team, while scoring five touchdowns on just 95 targets. At 6-3, 221 and with 4.5 speed, Gordon is a prototypical No. 1 target with red-zone size and enough explosiveness to beat defenses deep. He enters 2013 as the team's No. 1 receiver and its most dangerous outside playmaker as Greg Little has shown himself to be little more than a possession threat, and only an average one at that. Just keep in mind Gordon is suspended for the regular season's first two games after violating the league's substance abuse policy.

2012

After failing to address the wide receiver position in April's draft until selecting Travis Benjamin in the fourth round, the Browns made a splash when they took Gordon in the second round of the supplemental draft. It's a calculated risk as he missed all of 2011 after being suspended from Baylor before transferring to Utah. In his sophomore season in 2010 at Baylor he posted 42 catches for 714 yards (17.0 YPC) and seven touchdowns. He has the prototypical size (6-foot-3) and speed (4.52 40-time) to be successful at the professional level, but it's unclear how much rust he'll have to knock off first. The opportunity is there for Gordon as there isn't a tremendous amount of talent in Cleveland he must leap to get looks, and the Browns made a significant commitment to get him by sacrificing next year's second rounder, so he could be an interesting sleeper pick in the later rounds of drafts this summer.
