Patriots place Gordon on non-football injury list

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — The New England Patriots have placed receiver Josh Gordon on the non-football injury list while he gets back into shape following his suspension.

The move comes after the NFL conditionally lifted the suspension, saying Gordon could participate in team meetings, conditioning and individual workouts.

Gordon made two brief appearances in the Patriots' locker room before practice Monday but said he did not have time to talk to reporters.

Gordon was suspended indefinitely in December for violations of the league's substance abuse policy. He had also been suspended in 2012, and he missed the entire 2015 and '16 seasons. In interviews, he acknowledged using Xanax, cocaine, marijuana and other narcotics, and he said in 2017 he smoked pot before "probably every game of my career."

The Cleveland Browns cut ties with him last September. He had 40 receptions for 720 yards and three touchdowns with the Patriots before the league suspended him.
