Hue Jackson's Christmas season will start the day before Thanksgiving this year.
It's the day Josh Gordon will practice with the team for the first time since last preseason.
"It's like Christmas,'' said Jackson. "I get to open a new toy. I know what's in that box, but I just want to see how good it is. It's exciting that he'll be back out there."
On Monday, the first day Gordon was eligible to practice with the team instead of on his own, he spent some time catching passes with DeShone Kizer and the other quarterbacks. Jackson said he's very eager to add him to the lineup for the final five games, beginning Dec. 3 in Los Angeles against the Chargers.
