Gordon, Kirksey and DeValve out for Browns vs. Saints

The Cleveland Browns announced they would release Gordon on Saturday and the reasons why are beginning to trickle out. Gordon was slowed by a hamstring issue when he finally reported, but it's not clear if his new injury is the same hamstring.

"This afternoon we informed Josh Gordon and his representatives that we are going to release him on Monday", Dorsey said.

"For the past six years, the Browns have fully supported and invested in Josh, both personally and professionally and wanted the best for him, but unfortunately we've reached a point where we feel it's best to part ways and move forward".

Indicating the release of Gordon will not take place until Monday, the Browns have been fielding trade calls for the services of the wide receiver.


According to multiple sources, Gordon came in late to team facilities Saturday, suffering from a hamstring injury sustained during a promotional shoot per Adam Schefter.

Gordon was healthy for and during Friday's practice, usually when teams start to make final decisions on roster counts for Sunday's matchups.

Kirksey, who had been listed as questionable, will miss his first game after playing in 65 straight since being drafted third round in 2014. He did not play in any of the four preseason games.

But Gordon, 27, has played just 11 games since then because of numerous suspensions. The receiver caught just one pass on three targets, but it was a 17-yard touchdown that tied the game with less than two minutes left in regulation.
