Browns WR Josh Gordon Could Face NFL Ban With Another Drug Violation, Sources Say
Browns receiver Josh Gordon, who has apparently violated the NFL's substance abuse policy on at least two occasions, could be kicked out of the league if he fails a third test.
Browns receiver Josh Gordon already has two strikes against him after testing positive for codeine in February, and could get kicked out of the NFL if he fails a third drug test, league sources said Saturday.
Gordon's two-game suspension and four-game fine for the codeine -- which he said was contained in cough syrup prescribed for strep throat -- means he was already in Stage Two of the NFL's substance abuse program.
For a player to be suspended, he must have violated the policy at least one other time. That means that Gordon -- who failed three marijuana tests in college and was dismissed from Baylor and Utah -- has tested positive at least five times since October, 2010.
One more failed test and Gordon's storybook NFL career could be in serious jeopardy.
