NFL conditionally reinstates Patriots WR Gordon

Some big news on Friday after it appears the Patriots may not be without Josh Gordon to start the season after all. While most coaching staffs would probably be jumping for joy over the return of a talent like Gordon, Patriots coach Bill Belichick offered a more. reserved take on Gordon's reinstatement.

The New England Patriots received some good news over the weekend when the National Football League announced it was reinstating wide receiver Josh Gordon.

"For the past eight months, Josh's situation has been entirely a league matter", he said.

If the Patriots can get Gordon up to speed quickly and he can stay eligible, he could provide a major lift to their passing game. That news came out not long after an announcement by Gordon, who initially said he was walking away to get "a better grasp on things mentally". "But as Josh acknowledged, ultimately his success is up to him".

Josh Gordon is officially back.

He played 45 offensive snaps over the two games.

20 for violating the terms of his reinstatement under the league's substance abuse policy.

Getty Josh Gordon and Julian Edelman were the top receivers for New England past year. In the second preseason game past year, he completed 19 of 26 passes for 172 yards and two touchdowns with no picks - file that in the department of useless information.
