Josh Gordon‘s appeal of his marijuana suspension concluded earlier today, but Gordon is not expecting to hear a resolution for between one and three weeks, reports Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer (via Twitter).
Gordon is hoping that his full-year suspension will be cut down to avoid missing the entire 2014 season. While the substance-abuse policy requires a decision within reasonable time, Gordon has a large window in which a decision could be reached.
Despite missing the first two games of the 2013 season with a suspension, he still posted one of the most prolific receiving seasons in NFL history, accumulating a league-leading 1,646 yards. That number was also the tenth most yards in a single season, even though he only played 14 games.
Even if a settlement is reached in which Gordon avoids missing the entire season, it is unlikely he will see the field enough to replicate the impact he had last season.
