However there is more good news for Gordon and the Browns organization. As well as the reduced suspension, Mike Garofolo of Fox Sports reported that Gordon 'will be able to be around his teammates and coaches at the Browns' facility during his suspension.'

Ability to work out

One of the major problems with the former drug policy was that it banned Gordon from entering any of the Browns facilities - however under the new policy Gordon will have 'access to club activities, save for the games, full practices and travel with the team' meaning he will be able to work out and stay close to his teammates and coaches which will enable him to regain some of the structure that he clearly needs.

Whilst this is all good news for the wide receiver it does come with an added layer of testing. Gordon is currently working at a car dealership and received an advance on his salary under the premise that he passes regular drug tests. 

Players Reinstated 

It is not just Josh Gordon who is set to have his suspension shortened, former Indianapolis Colt LaVon Brazill's 16 game suspension will be cut to 10.

The players with lesser bans who will be reinstated and available to play in Week 3 include Broncos WR Wes Welker, Rams WR Steadman Bailey, Cowboys DB Orlando Scandrick, Giants OL Eric Herman and former Vikings DE Spencer Nealy.
