Gordon To Sit For At Least 2014 Season After Losing Appeal

Pittsburgh Steelers v Cleveland Browns

Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon’s one-year suspension has been upheld on appeal, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Gordon and his representatives appealed the decision earlier this month.

The NFL issued the following statement:

“Appeals officer Harold Henderson has upheld the suspension for the 2014 NFL season of Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon for violating the NFL Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse,” the NFL said in a statement. “The suspension is effective immediately. Gordon’s eligibility for reinstatement will be determined following the 2014 season.”

Gordon issued the following statement:

“Id 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 officer didn’t exercise better discretion and judgment in my case. I would like to sincerely thank the people who have been incredibly supportive of me during this challenging time, including my family, my agent, my union, my legal team, and the Cleveland Browns staff.”
