There isn’t much to celebrate in Cleveland with the Browns remaining as the league’s only winless team. Don’t tell head coach Hue Jackson that. He is in the holiday spirit with Josh Gordon‘s impending return to the practice field on Wednesday.
“It’s like Christmas,” Jackson told reporters, including Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal. “I get to open a new toy. I know what’s in that box, but I just want to see how good it is. It’s exciting that he’ll be back out there.”
Plagued by suspensions throughout his career, Gordon was reinstated to the league on Nov. 1 and is eligible to return to the field for Cleveland’s Week 13 matchup at the Chargers. Gordon produced one of the best seasons by a receiver in NFL history in 2013 when he led the league with 1,646 yards in just 14 games. He has played just five games since that breakout campaign.
If he is anywhere near his 2013 form, Browns fans will have at least one thing to be thankful for this holiday season.
