Falcons expect ‘full dose’ of Browns star Gordon

The NFL on Monday reinstated Browns star wide receiver Josh Gordon from his 10-game suspension for violating the league’s substance-abuse policy.

Falcons coach Mike Smith expects the Browns to waste no time in getting Gordon up to speed for Sunday’s game at the Georgia Dome.

“They’ve stated that they want to get him out on the field as quickly as possible,” Falcons coach Mike Smith said. “He’s a game changer. He’s a guy who with the guy in his hands, he can make plays. We are anticipating we will get a full dose of him.”

In 2013 Gordon played just 14 games but still led the league with 1,646 total yards and 117.6 per game. Gordon also had nine touchdown receptions with six scores for 37 yards or longer.
