As long as Josh Gordon continues to follow his treatment plan, the troubled wide receiver may soon be able to apply for reinstatement.
Gordon was suspended indefinitely in December for multiple drug policy violations. Since then, he has been receiving treatment in Gainesville, Fla. with some help from the Patriots, the NFL, and NFLPA.
Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reported Thursday that while there's no set date for Gordon to apply for reinstatement, the NFLPA can begin laying the groundwork in May.
The suspensions of #Patriots WR Josh Gordon and #Raiders WR Martavis Bryant are indefinite, so there’s no firm date on which they can apply for reinstatement. But if they follow their treatment plans, expect the NFLPA to lay groundwork starting in May, per sources.— Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) February 7, 2019
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell talked before the Super Bowl about Gordon's situation, and didn't rule out a potential return for the 27-year-old.
