Return of Josh Gordon lasts a day for Seahawks

1147

One day after coming off the NFL commissioner’s exempt list, Seahawks wide receiver Josh Gordon was reportedly put back on it. Gordon was supposed to rejoin his team on the practice field for the first time in a year today, but according to Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times, Gordon suffered another setback.

The NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero says the league informed Gordon and the Seahawks Tuesday that Gordon may attend team meetings and individual workouts, but is ineligible to participate in practices or games. Pelissero wrote that Gordon, “had a setback in his battle with substance abuse and now won’t be allowed to practice or play indefinitely.”

Pete Carroll was asked a barrage of questions today regarding Gordon’s situation. All he could say is that they’re disappointed he wasn’t able to get back on the field today…

Gordon was suspended by the NFL for the 6th time last December for using performance enhancing drugs and substances of abuse. He learned earlier this month that he would be able to come off the list this week and rejoin his team.

At this point, it is unclear when, or if Josh Gordon will ever play again. Seattle did keep Gordon on its 53-man roster, leading to speculation he may be reinstated sometime in the next two weeks.
