Browns coach Jack­son says team ‘moved on’ from Josh Gor­don

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - SPORTS -

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.
