(CLEVELAND) — National Football League Commissioner Roger Goodell announced Wednesday that Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon would be reinstated to the league on a conditional basis.
Gordon has not played since September 2016 following multiple violations of the league’s substance abuse policy.
According to the league, Gordon can attend meetings, engage in conditioning work and do individual workouts effective immediately. If he complies with certain requirements, Gordon will be permitted to practice with his team starting on November 20 and return to active status on November 27.
“As emphasized at today’s meeting, everyone — including Josh’s teammates and coaches, the Browns’ ownership and organization, the Program professionals and all of us at the league office — want him to have every opportunity to resume his career and to be successful in the NFL,” Goodell said. “Whether that happens, however, at the end of the day will depend on Josh.”
