CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Wide Receiver Josh Gordon and Cleveland Browns General Manager John Dorsey released a joint statement on Saturday afternoon confirming Gordon's return to the team following a leave of absence.

After missing the first few weeks of training camp, Dorsey says Gordon's return to full participation with football activities will be gradual.

Gordon first thanks the Cleveland Browns and the NFL for their love and support in his statement before saying, "I realize in order for me to reach my full potential my primary focus must remain on my sobriety and mental well-being."

Immediately after the announcement, Gordon's teammates Myles Garrett and Christian Kirksey took to Twitter to welcome him back.
