CLEVELAND – Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon sat out part of practice with tendinitis in his knee.
Gordon did not take part in the 11-on-11 scrimmage Monday after he felt some soreness while doing individual drills. Coach Rob Chudzinski said afterward that he's not concerned about the injury and does not yet know if the second-year wideout will undergo further tests.
Gordon is suspended for the first two games this season for violating the NFL's substance-abuse policy. He maintains he failed the drug test because there was codeine — a banned drug — in the cough syrup he was prescribed for strep throat. Gordon was dropped from Baylor's team for marijuana use.
The Browns selected Gordon in the supplemental draft last July. He made 13 starts as a rookie and finished with 50 receptions for 805 yards and five touchdowns.
