Josh Gordon has once again run afoul of the NFL’s substance-abuse policy.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Gordon violated the league’s policies on performance-enhancing substances and substances of abuse. This marks the fifth such time that he has been suspended for substance abuse, and his sixth suspension since 2013, according to ESPN Stats & Info.
Gordon’s struggles with substance abuse continue. This is the fifth time he’s been suspended under the policy despite being just 28 years old. He has battled addiction issues for many years and simply cannot seem to shake them off. Gordon’s season started with him trying to put these issues behind him, with the NFL’s support. It simply hasn’t worked.
Gordon had only seven catches for 139 yards since moving to the Seattle Seahawks this season. His career is in serious jeopardy at his point.
