The Cleveland Browns are expected to release wide receiver Josh Gordon on Monday.

General Manager John Dorsey released a statement Saturday that the team and Gordon had "reached a point where we feel it's best to part ways and move forward."


The six-year veteran had already been ruled out for Sunday's game in New Orleans with a hamstring injury, according to Cleveland head coach Hue Jackson. Additional reports cited that Gordon had been late to Saturday's practice.

Gordon returned to the Browns in December of 2017 after a three-year suspension for multiple violations of the league's substance abuse policy.

Gordon also missed part of the preseason as he went on an extended stay at the University of Florida to work on his mental health and anxiety.

The Browns' wide receiver had just one catch for 17 yards and a touchdown in Cleveland's Week One tie against Pittsburgh.
