NEW YORK (AP) — The conditional reinstatement of wide receiver Josh Gordon has been rescinded by the NFL, and Gordon is once again under suspension.
The change in Gordon’s status was listed on the NFL’s official transactions on Friday.
Gordon was signed by the Seattle Seahawks in September despite being under an indefinite suspension. That suspension ended in early December when Gordon was conditionally reinstated by Commissioner Roger Goodell. He was allowed to begin strength and conditioning work with the Seahawks staff, and attend meetings. He was expected to be eligible to play the final two weeks of the regular season.
But that never took place. Gordon was placed back on the commissioner’s exempt list in Week 16. Seattle expected Gordon to play at the start of Week 16, only to see his status change a couple of days later.
