Josh Gordon to enter rehab

Josh Gordon's Cleveland Browns comeback has hit another roadblock.

The wide receiver announced Thursday that he is entering an in-patient rehabilitation facility in an effort to "gain full control of my life." Gordon is eligible to play in the Browns' Week 5 contest against the New England Patriots as part of the terms of his NFL reinstatement for a substance abuse violation. Gordon's decision to enter rehab, however, puts his comeback on hold indefinitely.

"After careful thought and deep consideration I've decided that I need to step away from pursuing my return to the Browns and my football career to enter an in-patient rehabilitation facility," Gordon wrote. "This is the right decision for me and one that I hope will enable me to gain full control of my life and continue on a path to reach my full potential as a person. I appreciate the support of the NFL, NFLPA, the Browns, my teammates, my agent and the community through this extremely challenging process."

I wish the best for the guy but my goodness what a waste of talent.

Kids, don't do drugs.

Phenomenal talent and it starts to sound like he has his priorities straight. Hope it works out for him.

Re: Josh Gordon to enter rehab

Interesting ...

Flash was suspended for almost two full seasons & right before his reinstatement becomes final he announces this? Could be a coincidence but the timing of this seems a bit fishy.

Hoping all the best for Josh.
