Browns coach Jackson says team ‘moved on’ from Josh Gordon
The Browns have personal compassion for Josh Gordon. They’re done with him professionally. A day after the troubled wide receiver said he’s entering rehab for an unspecified condition, Cleveland coach Hue Jackson said Friday that the team intends to “move on” from Gordon. “What we need to do is just close that chapter right now,” Jackson said. “He’s doing what he needs to do, and we need to do what we need to do, which is continue to move forward.”
One of the NFL’s most talented young players, Gordon, who has been suspended for 30 of the Browns past 35 games, announced Thursday that he’s stepping away from football to focus on getting his life together.
The 25-year-old was scheduled to return from his latest fourgame suspension next week and possibly play on Oct. 9 against New England.
However, Gordon has chosen to put his career on hold to work on an unidentified addiction.
