BEREA, Ohio (AP) — Browns Pro Bowl wide receiver Josh Gordon has reported to training camp as he awaits an appeal hearing with the NFL on a possible suspension.
Gordon is scheduled to meet with the league on Aug. 1. He's facing an indefinite suspension for violating the substance abuse policy for at least the third time. Gordon was suspended for the first two games last season.
He entered the league with a history of marijuana abuse after failing two drug tests in college. Gordon reportedly entered a rehab clinic following a recent DUI arrest in North Carolina.
Gordon participated with Cleveland's other veterans in a conditioning test on Friday. Defensive tackle Phil Taylor didn't complete the sprints and tight end Gary Barnidge was helped off the field by trainers before being driven on a cart to the facility.
