The New England Patriots are going to have to make their playoff push without their star wide receiver Josh Gordon.

This morning, Gordon shocked the NFL world when he announced that he was taking some time off from football to focus on his mental health.

Apparently Gordon is facing an indefinite suspension for violating terms of his reinstatement under the substance abuse policy,

Gordon joined the Patriots earlier this season when the Browns decided to part ways with him after he “violated the team’s trust when he arrived late to practice facility and was “not himself. After years away from the league and multiple violation of the league’s substance abuse policy, if Godon tests positive again for any banned substance I doubt that he’ll ever get another shot to play again.
