The NFL has rescinded Gordon's conditional reinstatement, ESPN's Brady Henderson reports. The report notes that the decision, which results in Gordon -- who last played in December of 2019 -- being suspended indefinitely, stems from the wide receiver violating terms of his reinstatement under the NFL's substance-abuse policy.
The NFL revealed Tuesday that Gordon will remain on the commissioner's exempt list indefinitely, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports. Gordon had a setback in his battle with substance abuse, thus violating the terms of his conditional reinstatement. He won't be allowed to practice or play until further notice.
The NFL determined Tuesday that Gordon hasn't satisfied all the terms of his conditional reinstatement, and he'll revert to the commissioner's exempt list, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports. Despite being activated Monday, it appears Gordon still has a few more hurdles to clear before he can return to game action. For the time being, Gordon can attend team meetings and participate in individual workouts, but he can't practice or play in games. With that in mind, his status is murky for Sunday's game against the Rams.
The Seahawks added Gordon (suspension) to the 53-man roster Monday, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports. Gordon was reinstated by the NFL on Dec. 3, and he's met the terms of his conditional reinstatement. The 29-year-old wide receiver will join the team at practice and meetings this week. According to Condotta, coach Pete Carroll said Monday that "we are planning the week like he has a chance to contribute." Gordon's conditioning will be evaluated during practice, and if all goes well, he should be in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Rams. It's unlikely that Gordon ever puts together the numbers that earned him All-Pro honors back in 2013, but he could establish himself as yet another speedy option in Russell Wilson's arsenal.
Gordon (suspension) has met the terms of his conditional reinstatement from the league and will rejoin the Seahawks for team activities Monday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports. The NFL reinstated Gordon on Dec. 3, but he's only been able to take part in individual workouts and team meetings since that time. The wideout will be integrated into practices next week, and if the Seahawks are satisfied with his conditioning, the 29-year-old could make his 2020 debut Dec. 27 versus the Rams. While the hope of Gordon rediscovering the All-Pro form he showed with the Browns in 2013 is probably a pipe dream at this point, the wideout could give the Seahawks another deep-ball threat that defenses will have to monitor, which may free up receivers DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett for more one-on-one matchups.
