The season long suspension of Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon will be reduced to 10 games reports Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer.
Gordon “has been notified” that his suspension will be reduced pending the approval of the NFL’s new drug policy.

Of course Profootballtalk’s Mike Florio believes that Gordon will also be subject to another two-game ban for his offseason DUI arrest but says that that suspension may not be enforced this season.
Gordon missed the first two games of the season a year ago but went on to lead the NFL in receiving yards. That will not happen this season but Gordon being allowed back on the field at some point this year gives the Browns some time to pair him with Johnny Manziel or whoever is starting come Week 12.
