Browns' Josh Gordon: Eligible to re-apply for reinstatement on Aug. 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gordon, who has been suspended by the NFL for violating the league's substance-abuse policy since Feb. 3, 2015, is eligible to re-apply for reinstatement on Aug. 1, the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

As part of the process toward the wideout's potential reinstatement, Gordon met in person with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell in New York on Wednesday. While having a chance to meet with Goodell face-to-face would appear to represent a step in the right direction, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport relays that he gets the sense that "nothing is imminent on (Gordon's) return." Meanwhile, Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer notes that the recent meeting doesn't "necessarily mean (Gordon will) get the green light shortly after Aug. 1." At this stage, the wideout's 2016 availability remains murky, with no concrete change in his status possible until after he applies for reinstatement. Ideally, from a fantasy perspective, some sort of timetable for a decision on that front will emerge sooner rather than later, though ESPN's Dan Graziano speculates that a call on Gordon's status may not be likely before the start of the coming season.

Browns' Josh Gordon: Could stay in Cleveland if reinstated
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Browns may still have interest in retaining Gordon if he is eventually reinstated from his league suspension, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Previously suspended by the NFL for two games in 2013, 10 games in 2014 and then the entire 2015 season, Gordon was denied reinstatement in April amidst reports of a failed drug test due to a diluted sample that also contained traces of marijuana. His repeated violations of the NFL's substance-abuse policy might make it a tough sell when he's eligible to apply for reinstatement again on Aug. 1, but Gordon does at least have a few factors working in his favor, namely that his latest failed drug test actually came up short of the league's required threshold for a marijuana sample. He's also passed dozens of drug tests since entering the league, and he hasn't had any reported legal issues since entering rehab in the aftermath of a July 2014 DWI. Although the Browns have made it clear they aren't banking on Gordon's presence for 2016, the franchise's new regime might be willing to give him a shot if the NFL signs off on it. Even if things eventually work out in his favor, Gordon could miss games at the beginning of the season, as NFL commissioner Roger Goodell often takes weeks (or even months) to decide such matters. In the meantime, Gordon still can't participate in team activities.

Browns' Carl Nassib: Likely next in line to start at left defensive end
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

With Desmond Bryant out 4-to-6 months with a torn pectoral muscle, Nassib has a chance to be an immediate starter at left defensive end.

Nassib was taken 65th overall by the Browns in the 2016 NFL Draft, and due to Bryant's absence, now has an opportunity to jump-start his NFL career. While the situation may constitute throwing the Penn State product into the fire sooner than what had been initially envisioned, he'll receive immediate starting experience and an opportunity to show his worth.

Browns' Desmond Bryant: Out 4-to-6 months with torn pectoral muscle
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Bryant is likely done for the season with a torn pectoral muscle, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

Bryant received surgery to repair the injury on Tuesday, and his timetable for return is set at 4-to-6 months. Bryant led the Browns with six sacks, along with 24 solo tackles and nine assisted tackles in 2015. While Bryant is out, rookie Carl Nassib may be next in line to start at left defensive end. These games will be the first Bryant has missed in three full seasons with the Browns.
