Browns’ Gordon Meeting With NFL On Appeal

BEREA, Ohio (AP) — Browns receiver Josh Gordon is meeting with NFL officials in New York to appeal a possible indefinite suspension for violating the league’s substance abuse policy.

Gordon’s attorney is expected to argue that Gordon tested positive for marijuana because of secondhand smoke.

Gordon has not been at training camp the past two days. Cleveland coach Mike Pettine does not know if the Pro Bowler will be at Saturday’s scrimmage in Akron.

The Browns are eager to resolve the matter. Gordon is the team’s top playmaker and led the league in yards receiving last season.

Commissioner Roger Goodell, speaking at the Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio, said a decision will be based on the information at the hearing. Gordon was suspended two games last season for a drug violation.
