Josh Gordon has not had settlement talks with the NFL to reduce his year-long suspension. Gordon has appealed the suspension, and the result of that appeal can come at any time.
It has been three days since the hearing regarding Gordon's appeal. In the light of the recent Ray Rice "punishment" it will be a bit hypocritical to keep Gordon out for a year. ANALYST:
Cecil Shorts might be ready to play against Jacksonville in Week 6.
Both Shorts and Nate Washington missed Thursday's game, making way for Jaelen Strong and Keith Mumphery. While strong caught two TDs, Mumphery was a non-factor. Strong earned himself more playing time in the coming weeks, possibly coming at Shorts' expense, though it could come at Washington's as coach Bill O'Brien said that Shorts had a better chance of playing against Jacksonville than Washington does.
