Browns Coach Hue Jackson says Josh Gordon will start on Sunday

He's also going to start.

Gordon, who hasn't played in a game since December 21, 2014, was reinstated by the National Football League on a conditional basis earlier this month and returned to practice last week for the first time since serving his indefinite suspension. Heck yeah. Are you kidding me (laughter)?

"He earned the right to get back here", Jackson said. "Yeah, he's going to start". He has not played officially since December of 2014, but all reports coming from practices indicate the team has "big plans" for Gordon's return to action. "I used to make a ritual of it before every game", he told GQ's Clay Skipper. "I plan for him to play and play as much as he can handle".

"My life is a just a conducive space of who I need to be for me, psychologically, physically, it's all coming together", Gordon said via the team's official website. I think he's excited about playing. I think the players have seen him out there and they have seen what he can do. "Now being back in a situation to do it, I plan on seeing it through". Probably inside, I'm sure there will be some things rolling through his head that he will work through, but we will be there to assist him.

His first time trying cocaine was in 2011, when Gordon, who had transferred to Utah, was sitting out a year.

Gordon has been suspended for a total of 56 career games, 55 of which were National Football League bans for positive drug and alcohol tests.

"I don;t really feel any pressure that's been put on me", Gordon said.

"It was supposed to be insight into my life", Gordon said. The 26 year-old's last game action was on December 21, 2014.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell conditionally reinstated Gordon earlier this month following several suspensions for violated league substance abuse policies.

The coach noted that Gordon, who was conditionally reinstated on November 1, has enough of a grasp of the playbook to run with the first-team in his debut.
