Josh Gordon was in Berea to go through practice with his teammates, but he did get off the field a little early. He needed to head inside to finish his appeal with the NFL via video link.
Gordon's representatives were in New York, where Gordon was on Friday. His appeal lasted for more than 10 hours on Friday and was carried over until Monday. According to the AP, his appeal finished up around 3:00 on Monday.
The Browns, and Gordon, will now simply play the waiting game to see if the Pro Bowl receiver is suspended for the entire 2014 season for failing a drug test. Gordon's camp contends his positive test, which just barely tested positive, was the result of second hand smoke. A second test sample tested negative, but the league acted on the positive test.
Last year Gordon appeared to catch a break when the league reduced a four game drug suspension to only two games. The receiver then argued that his positive test came from a prescription for Codeine.
