NFL Reinstates Browns WR Josh Gordon, Will Miss At Least 4 Games

The NFL has reinstated Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport:

Gordon missed all of the 2015 season for violating the league's substance abuse policy. Here's what NFL commissioner Roger Goodell wrote to Gordon when reinstating him:

"As we discussed at our [July 19] meeting, as commissioner, I want nothing more than to see you turn your circumstances around and succeed. Countless others including your agent, teammates and coaches, Mr. Haslam and the leadership of the organization, the Program professionals and Jim Brown have also pledged to provide you with every resource at their disposal. But as you acknowledged, ultimately, your future is your responsibility. I have every belief that you can make the right choices, but it will be up to you to do so."

Gordon played in just five games in 2014 due to another suspension, and caught 24 passes for 303 yards. In just 14 games in 2013 (also due to suspension), he led the NFL with 1,646 receiving yards.
