Schefter: Browns WR Josh Gordon still looking at a multi-game suspension

Adam Schefter, Twitter - [Full Article]

Both sides, NFL and NFLPA, hoping to finalize a new drug policy tonight in which suspensions will wind up being overturned.

Schefter appeared on ESPN's NFL Insiders today and said if NFL/NFLPA agreement is approved, Browns WR Josh Gordon would still be suspended for some games.

Fantasy Impact: 

This situation is very much up in the air, but it appears that Gordon will play this year. The question is -- how much? Schefter suggested a 6-10 game suspension. If they include time served (the first two weeks), then Gordon could return in Week 8 under a six-game suspension and Week 12 under a 10-game suspension. It's unclear what the rationale would be for a partial ban. Either his failed test would have been negative under the new rules or it wouldn't. Stay tuned.
