This is a very tough blow of the Browns, who were looking to make Gordon a featured weapon in the passing game. New Browns Offensive Coordinator Norv Turner is very impressed by what he’s seen thus far from Gordon, and believes he is poised for a breakout campaign, but even if that’s true, it will at least be delayed two games.

As a rookie in 2012, Gordon caught 50 passes and led the team with 805 yards and five touchdowns.

In 2011 while at Baylor University, Gordon was suspended indefinitely by head coach Art Briles for later failing a drug test and testing positive for marijuana. He later transferred to Utah, but sat out the 2011 season and ended up declaring for the supplemental draft in 2012, where the Browns drafted him.
