The Cleveland Browns finally have some good news for their fans, as prolific receiver Josh Gordon is back with the team. A report by confirmed that Gordon practiced with the Browns on Wednesday (Nov. 22). It was the first time since summer 2016 that Gordon has been able to do that and the first regular-season practice since December of 2014.

Gordon has been reinstated by the NFL after missing 53 of the last 58 Browns games due to suspensions. Gordon repeatedly violated the NFL’s substance abuse policy and had been suspended when the 2017 season began.

Now he might return to action just in time to be a viable option in fantasy football leagues. He could also prove himself worthy of a contract extension.

Gordon was the star of the Browns

During the 2013 NFL season, Josh Gordon led the league in receiving yards, despite playing in only 14 games for the Cleveland Browns. He had 87 catches for 1,646 yards and nine touchdowns. Averaging 117.6 yards per game made him a hot commodity in fantasy football and it’s why owners have still kept him on rosters, despite the suspensions. Now some of his fans may finally be rewarded with on-field action.

As long as Gordon stays out of trouble, he is eligible to play in the Week 13 game for the Cleveland Browns.

The team takes on the Los Angeles Chargers on Dec. 3, which could be his first appearance if the front office wants to put him on the field. The team doesn’t have to activate Gordon officially until Dec. 4, so they will likely wait and see how he looks at practice before making a final decision. After that, Gordon should be lining up for the Browns again.

More NFL news

The Josh Gordon news isn’t the only thing going on around the NFL this week. On Tuesday (Nov. 22), the Seattle Seahawks decided to waive defensive end Dwight Freeney. Freeney was signed by the Seahawks to give the team depth on defense, but they are now going in a different direction with the roster. Freeney can be claimed by other teams or sign as a free agent should he pass through waivers.

Over the weekend, the Minnesota Vikings beat the Los Angeles Rams to improve to 8-2 on the season. In a division that the Green Bay Packers were supposed to win this season, the Vikings are starting to pull away in the NFC North. Beating another division leader in the Rams may have proven that the Vikings are ready to be true contenders again. Next up for the Vikings is a game against the Detroit Lions on Thanksgiving Day.
