Gordon, who hasn’t played in a game since Dec. 21, 2014, was reinstated by the NFL on a conditional basis earlier this month and returned to practice last week for the first time since serving his indefinite suspension.
The 26-year-old had been banned more than 50 games due to multiple violations of the league’s substance abuse policy. He recently admitted that he was normally under the influence of alcohol or drugs for nearly every game of his career, but is looking to turn his life around after a stint in rehab and working out with former Olympian-turned-speed-coach Tim Montgomery.

JURICH’S BUILDING SPREE transformed the Louisville campus and parts of the city. Bars and restaurants opened in the riverfront neighborhood around the KFC Yum Center. Cardinal Park, which houses the track, soccer and softball stadiums, as well as a community playground and public athletic facilities, became the “front lawn” of the university for visitors and students on South Floyd Street.
Jim Caldwell’s job isn’t as safe as initially believed.
The Lions coach signed a multi-year contract extension with the team earlier this year that is guaranteed for only 2018 with team options beyond that, NFL Insider Ian Rapoport reported.
According to the report, the team would have to pay Caldwell for next season only if they decided to fire him, though the Lions won’t make a decision regarding his future until this season ends.
Caldwell has found himself on and off the chopping block since the 2015 season when the Lions started 1-7, and his time could be close to running out given the team’s struggles since starting this season 3-1.
