Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon’s one-year suspension for violating the league’s substance abuse policy has been upheld by an arbitrator.

Gordon will be considered for reinstatement following the 2014 season, so the suspension might last less than a full calendar year.

“I’d like to apologize to my teammates, coaches, the Cleveland Browns organization and our fans,” Gordon said in a statement. “I am very disappointed that the NFL and its hearing office didn’t exercise better discretion and judgment in my case. I would like to sincerely thank the people who have been incredibly supportive of me during this challenging time, including my family, my agent, my union, my legal team, and the Cleveland Browns staff.”

The Browns have to be worried about Gordon’s future without the structure of his team around him, particularly since he’s failed multiple drug tests and was charged with a DUI this offseason.

Reportedly, the team tried to convince the league that Gordon should still be allowed to be around team headquarters during the ban, but according to Ian Rapoport of, the league denied that request.
