General News (Thu Sep 29): announced Thursday, Sept. 29, that he is stepping away from pursuing his return to football in order to enter a rehabilitation facility. According to Nate Ulrich, of the Akron Beacon Journal, Gordon's career with the Browns is "likely over." Gordon is "not expected to receive another shot with this regime."

Week 4: at Washington Redskins

All WR vs WAS

Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. Cody Kessler will start in Week Four against Washington, according to head coach Hue Jackson on Monday, September 26. Kessler (21/33 for 244 yards passing, zero TDs or interceptions thrown, and three sacks taken for -17 yards, with two rushes for -1 yard) shared the snaps with Terrelle Pryor (3/5 for 35 yards passing, 4/21/1 rushing, and 14 targets for 8/144/0 receiving) against the Dolphins. The multi-faceted attack brought the Browns to within a last-minute field goal of winning the game (free agent place kicker Cody Parkey missed the game-winner, sending the game into overtime where Miami eventually triumphed). Besides Pryor, Kessler threw at Gary Barnidge (six targets for 5/66/0 receiving), Ricardo Louis (four for 4/30/0) and Andrew Hawkins (four for 2/14/0) the most. It was a solid effort for a rookie quarterback in his first start. The Washington pass defense allowed 25/38 for 337 net yards passing, one TD and two interceptions to Eli Manning and company last weekend. They are currently 26th in the NFL averaging 301.7 net passing yards allowed per game, with four passing TDs surrrendered vs. three interceptions and seven sacks generated to date. Unfortunately, the Washington secondary also lost safety DeAngelo Hall (torn ACL) for the season and saw starting cornerback Bashaud Breeland go down to a high ankle sprain (almost always an injury that causes a multi-week absence) - so not only did they give up over 300 yards passing to the Giants, the secondary got a lot worse personnel-wise during the contest. This looks like a good matchup for the young Cleveland quarterback and his supporting cast. The Washington defense is scrambling this week to reconstitute an already-sub-par secondary.

Browns | Josh Gordon done with the Browns? (Thu Sep 29, 06:45 PM) - Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon's career with the team is 'likely over,' as he's not expected to receive another shot with this regime.

Our View: No surprise here. Gordon is trying to get his life back on track, and he may not see the field for some time.

Browns | Josh Gordon entering rehab (Thu Sep 29, 05:42 PM) - Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon announced Thursday, Sept. 29, that he is stepping away from pursuing his return to football in order to enter a rehabilitation facility.

Our View: Gordon was set to be back next week for the Browns, and now he may not play football anytime soon. We think the Browns and this regime will eventually move on from the talented but oft-troubled WR. Where he ends up is anybody's guess. We just hope he gets his life back on track.

Browns | Warrant for Josh Gordon rescinded (Thu Sep 22, 01:40 AM) - An arrest warrant for Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon was withdrawn after the receiver complied with a year-old court order to take a DNA test in a paternity suit. In a statement, Gordon's attorneys said he was unaware until noon Wednesday, Sept. 21, that he had been requested to take the test.

Our View: Looks like Gordon is going to avoid trouble here. He wasn't in much if any danger of getting further discipline from the league in this case.

Browns | Josh Gordon on track for Week 5 (Wed Sep 21, 02:27 PM) - Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon is still on track to return for the team's Week 5 game even though a warrant has been issued for his arrest stemming from a paternity case, according to an NFL spokesperson.

Our View: Gordon was not suspended for this new matter. We don't like to hear about him getting into more trouble, but the issue should be solved in court. Fantasy owners are going to get Gordon back, but the QB situation -- and most of the offense -- is a bit of a mess. When he's back, trusting him as a flex early might be the best bet...if you want to play him.
