Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon has left the team and decided to enter into rehab. His return is unknown at this time.

He was eligible to return in Week 5 after serving a four-game substance abuse suspension. Now his football career is on hold.

Gordon has been busted for marijuana many times since entering in the National Football League.

“After careful thought and deep consideration I’ve decided that I need to step away from pursuing my return to the Browns and my football career to enter an in-patient rehabilitation facility,” Gordon said. “This is the right decision for me and one that I hope will enable me to gain full control of my life and continue on a path to reach my full potential as a person. I appreciate the support of the NFL, NFLPA, the Browns, my teammates, my agent and the community through this extremely challenging process.”

Gordon has been battling problems with marijuana. He hasn’t played in the NFL since 2014, where he played in five games, all starts.

He had 24 receptions for 303 yards. He did not play last year because of suspension.

“We support Josh in taking this step to seek additional help and treatment,” Browns Executive VP of Football Operations Sashi Brown said. “His singular focus must be on his own health. We want nothing more than for Josh to be successful personally and professionally and will not comment on his status with the organization at this time.”
