According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, New England Patriots wide receiver Josh Gordon has been returned to the Commissioner’s Suspended list immediately. He has violated the terms of his agreement for reinstatement under the Policy and Program for Substance of Abuse.

Gordon announced earlier on Thursday morning that he was stepping away from the Patriots to focus on his mental health. However, he reportedly knew this suspension was coming and that’s why he stepped away.

He is definitely suspended for the rest of this season. And he may never play in the league again.

This is Gordon’s fifth suspension, according to Schefter. He was first suspended by the league on July 7th, 2013 for two games for violating the league’s policy on performance enhancing drugs.

The suspension was then lifted on September 16th, 2013. He was then suspended for the 2014-15 season on August 17th, 2014 for violating the league’s substance abuse policy. He was activated by the Browns from the Commissioner’s Permission list on November 22nd, 2014.

On December 27th, 2014, he also was suspended by the Browns for a violating of team rules. A few months later, the NFL suspended Brown for at least one year for violating the league’s substance abuse policy on February 3rd, 2015.

The 27-year-old Houston, Texas native was then reinstated by the NFL on July 25th, 2016. The Browns then placed him on their non-football injury list on July 26th, 2016. He was then activated by the Browns from their non-football injury list on August 15th, 2016.

Gordon was fully reinstated to the NFL on November 20th, 2017. He signed a one-year deal with the Browns in April. On September 18th, 2018, he was traded by the Browns, along with a conditional 2019 seventh-round draft pick, to the New England Patriots for a 2019 fifth-round draft pick.

With the Patriots, he had 40 receptions for 720 yards in 11 starts. He also had three touchdowns. Since his debut in Week 4, Gordon led the team in receiving yards.

He appeared in one game, one start, with the Browns prior to his trade to the Patriots. He had one reception for 17 yards and a touchdown.
