BEREA — As his teammates sweated through another training camp practice, Josh Gordon was in a New York office building where his career — and Cleveland's season — were in jeopardy.
Gordon met Friday with NFL officials to appeal a possible indefinite suspension for violating the league's substance-abuse policy. Gordon's attorney, Maurice Suh, and other members of his legal team were expected to argue that Gordon tested positive for marijuana because of second-hand smoke, a defense they planned to augment with witnesses.
No decision on Gordon is expected for several days and the Browns are keeping their fingers crossed the outcome will be favorable.
