|Josh Gordon to miss the 2014 season -- Wed Aug 27 1:35 pm --|
|Josh Gordon will miss the entire 2014 season after the NFL upheld the Cleveland Browns star's yearlong suspension for violating the league's substance-abuse policy. "I'd like to apologize to my teammates, coaches, the Cleveland Browns organization and our fans," Gordon said. "I am very disappointed that the NFL and its hearing office didn't exercise better discretion and judgment in my case." (ESPN)|
FF Today's Take: Finally. You can cross Gordon of your re-draft cheatsheet for this season. The league will determine at a later date when Gordon is eligible to be reinstated. Miles Austin, Andrew Hawkins, and tight end Jordan Cameron will be the top three targets for the Browns' quarterbacks. Outside of Cameron, fantasy owners can avoid the Browns passing game.

Browns' receiver charged with DWI
|Police say Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon was arrested and charged with driving while impaired after speeding down a street in Raleigh. Browns general manager Ray Farmer said the team is aware of Gordon's arrest and is disappointed. He didn't comment further.

FF Today's Take: Gordon's appeal on a one-year ban was set to be head later this month. With another apparent infraction, it's likely Gordon won't be seeing the field in 2014 and perhaps beyond. His fantasy stock is at an all time low- off the the re-draft radar and perhaps off the dynasty league radar very soon.

Substance-abuse violation; could sit out 2014 season
|With the NFL firing off suspensions today like shots from a Roman candle, some have wondered whether the next shoe will drop on the throat of Browns receiver Josh Gordon. But it will be happening sooner rather than later. Gordonís hearing, weíre told, has been scheduled for late July.
If Gordon is suspended for a year, the ban will start immediately. Itís possible that, with a reduced suspension, heíll be permitted to participate in training camp and the preseason. (Pro Football Talk)|
FF Today's Take: Itís still possible that a hearing wonít be needed, if the NFL and the NFLPA work out a reduced suspension. Gordon reportedly faces a minimum one-year ban as a Stage 3 violator of the league's substance-abuse policy. The NFL has slow-played this decision for unknown reasons, but it appears Browns fans - as well as fantasy owners - will get some definitive resolution on this case around the start of training camp at the latest.
