Roger Goodell issues statement on Josh Gordon reinstatement

Roger Goodell

The NFL has issued a statement confirming Josh Gordon’s immediate reinstatement to the NFL effective Sunday.

The statement confirmed that Gordon has been reinstated “on a conditional basis” which will be subject to “appropriate progress on clinical care and other arrangements.” The statement also noted that Gordon would not play in the Patriots’ Aug. 22 preseason game due to insufficient time to get up to speed with his conditioning.

Commissioner Roger Goodell said in the statement that he and the rest of the league were “rooting” for Gordon to succeed, but warned that “ultimately his success is up to him.”

Gordon has a spot waiting for him with the Patriots, and will almost certainly factor into their thinking once the regular season starts. It remains to be seen to what extent.
