Josh Gordon Avoids Suspension For DUI

Josh Gordon will return to the field today after serving a 10-game suspension for failing a league drug test, and he received another bit of good news this morning. According to Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, Gordon will face only a fine, and not a suspension, for his DUI conviction in September. As Florio notes, Gordon pleaded guilty to the DUI charge to “avoid the automatic two-game suspension contemplated by the revised substance-abuse policy.”

Of course, Gordon will be subject to a stiff suspension should he run afoul of that policy in the future, but he has avoided another ban for the time being and can now shift his focus to his team’s push for the AFC North crown.
