Coach Pete Carroll said Monday that he "can't comment" on when Josh Gordon (suspension) will be reinstated, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.
Gordon, who is currently still serving an indefinite suspension for violating the NFL's substance-abuse policy, re-signed with Seattle in early August. When available, he's expected to compete with Phillip Dorsett (foot) and David Moore for work behind top receivers Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf, but time is running short for Gordon to receive the all-clear ahead of Sept. 13's season opener in Atlanta.
Gordon (suspension) re-signed with the Seahawks on Thursday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Gordon is hoping to be reinstated from suspension before the start of the season, or at least early on in the year. He never really seized the No. 3 receiver role in Seattle last season, catching seven of 11 targets for 139 yards in five games before a violation of the NFL's substance-abuse policy led to another indefinite suspension. With Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf locked in as full-time players, the 29-year-old Gordon will need to compete against Phillip Dorsett and David Moore for the team's No. 3 job.
Gordon (suspension) expects to have an update on his reinstatement to the NFL within the next month, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports.
Gordon is an unrestricted free agent but may not draw any interest from teams until he learns more about his eligibility status for 2020. He submitted a letter of reinstatement June 17, and he reportedly has been working out and staying sober in the meantime.
Gordon submitted a letter of reinstatement Wednesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.
Gordon was suspended indefinitely in December for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances and substances of abuse. The ban is the sixth of his career. In the meantime, Gordon has been running routes to prepare for a return, but whether that happens remains to be seen.
Gordon (suspension) hopes to be reinstated by training camp, Ben Arthur of SeattlePI reports.
Gordon is currently serving his sixth career suspension in the form of an indefinite ban for violating the league's performance-enhancing substances and substances of abuse policy Dec. 16. Currently a free agent, Gordon hauled in 27 passes for 426 yards and one score across 11 combined games with the Seahawks and Patriots in 2019, and he previously served as a key contributor in New England's aerial attack in 2018 while averaging 18.0 yards per catch. The 29-year-old still offers intriguing field-stretching abilities, and earning reinstatement in time to participate in training camp would likely increase his chances of getting a shot with a new club, but he'll first need to convince league officials that he's made tangible progress off the field.
Gordon (suspension) is planning a return to the NFL in 2020, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports.
Gordon was suspended indefinitely Dec. 16 for violating the league's performance-enhancing substances and substances of abuse policies. This was the sixth career suspension for Gordon, who is currently a free agent. Commissioner Roger Goodell will ensure Gordon makes steady progress away from the field before the league entertains reinstating him. The 29-year-old spent the 2019 season with both the Patriots and Seahawks, totaling 27 receptions for 426 yards and a touchdown in 11 games.

Considering Gordon's repeat offender status, he's likely done for the season. Gordon is coming off his best game with the Seahawks, hauling in a 58-yard pass in Sunday's 30-24 win over the Panthers. The 28-year-old receiver played six games for the Patriots and five for the Seahawks this season. The Seahawks likely will use a rotation to fill the No. 3 receiver role going forward, using Malik Turner, David Moore and Jaron Brown.
Gordon hauled in a 58-yard pass on his only target in Sunday's 30-24 win over the Panthers. He also threw an interception.
Gordon continues to work as the No. 3 wideout behind Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf, but he only played 25 of a possible 67 offensive snaps (37 percent). The 28-year-old Gordon managed to feature his field-stretching abilities, however, setting up Tyler Lockett for a touchdown a few plays later. Over five games with the Seahawks, Gordon has yet to surpass two receptions, but he'll look to break out in Week 16 against the Cardinals' league-worst passing defense (294.2 yards allowed per game).
Gordon hauled in two of five targets for 34 yards in Sunday's 28-12 loss to the Rams.
This was Gordon's best stat line since arriving in Seattle. While his numbers were nothing to write home about, it's intriguing that Gordon recorded 37 offensive snaps, establishing himself as the No. 3 wideout ahead of Malik Turner (15) and David Moore (14). Gordon's promotion was a matter of if, not when, and he seems to be comfortable with the playbook and Russell Wilson, who connected with him on a key fourth down in the fourth quarter. Gordon will look to break through in Week 15's matchup against the Panthers.
Gordon caught his only target for a 10-yard gain during Monday's 37-30 win over Minnesota.
Gordon broke over the middle for a third-down conversion during Seattle's second drive of the game Monday to set up a touchdown, but he wasn't targeted again. He hasn't shown a spark yet with four catches for 47 yards in three games with Seattle, keeping him off the fantasy radar. Sunday offers a tough matchup against the division-rival Rams and the league's 10th-ranked pass defense.
Gordon (ankle) was a full participant in Friday's practice, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.
The Seahawks listed Gordon as a limited participant on Thursday's estimated practice report, but the wideout's ability to take all the reps during Friday's session paves the way for him to enter the Week 13 matchup with the Vikings minus a designation. Like Gordon, DK Metcalf (knee) was also able to upgrade to full participation Friday, leaving both players in line to potentially fill larger roles in the passing attack should top option Tyler Lockett (shin/illness) sit out the Monday night matchup. Lockett was unable to take any reps Friday, making his status one to track ahead of the Seahawks' final practice of the week Saturday.
Gordon (ankle) is listed as a limited participant on Thursday's practice estimate, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic reports.
In two games with the Seahawks, Gordon logged 37 percent of the offensive snaps Week 10 against the 49ers and 33 percent of those plays this past Sunday at Philadelphia. Such a workload hasn't lent itself to much production, as he's hauled in three of four targets for 37 yards. Now with an ankle injury in tow, Gordon's status should be monitored to get a sense of his availability for Monday's contest against the Vikings.
Gordon caught one of three targets for 10 yards in Sunday's 17-9 win over the Eagles.
Gordon now has three receptions over two games with the Seahawks, and each one was a third-down conversion. It was a slow day for Seattle's receivers overall, as Russell Wilson completed a season-low 13 passes with no receivers topping 38 yards. Gordon is still looking to find his game with Seattle, and he'll look to leverage another week of practice into increased production Week 13 against the Vikings.
Gordon hauled in both of his targets for 27 yards in Monday's 27-24 overtime win against the 49ers.
Gordon's name wasn't called for most of the game, but he snagged a crucial third-down conversion for 13 yards late in the fourth quarter, setting up Jason Myers' go-ahead field goal. The 49ers were able to send the game to overtime, where Gordon caught a 14-yard pass on third down. As his knowledge of the playbook increases, his snap count and target share should rise with it. For now, it's clear why the Seahawks brought in Gordon, and his role could intensify after Seattle's bye week if Tyler Lockett's lower-leg injury is serious.
Gordon is listed as active Monday in San Francisco.
Gordon was listed as a limited participant on the Seahawks' injury reports earlier in the week, but after practicing in full Saturday, he didn't have a designation for this contest. He'll thus make his debut the team, but the presence of Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf hurts Gordon's prospects off the bat.
Gordon (ankle) is not listed on the Seahawks' injury report heading into Monday's contest against the 49ers, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.
Head coach Pete Carroll wouldn't outright confirm Gordon would play Monday according to Brady Henderson of ESPN.com, but it certainly appears as if he's healthy enough to make his Seahawks debut. Considering Tyler Lockett (hip) also wasn't listed on the team's final injury report, the Seahawks likely won't force Gordon into action, but it wouldn't be a surprise to see the veteran wideout take the field at some point Monday.
Gordon (ankle) was a limited practice participant Friday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.
For the second straight session with his new squad, Gordon's reps were capped as he tends to an ankle injury. On Friday, both coach Pete Carroll and offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer touched on Gordon. While Carroll told KIRO Radio 97.3 that he's unsure whether the wide receiver will be available Monday in San Francisco, Schottenheimer noted Gordon is "moving around really good out there," per Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle. Gordon's activity level hasn't been enough to upgrade to full participation, but he seems to be trending toward his debut with the team, as long as Carroll and company are confident he's picked up the playbook.
Coach Pete Carroll didn't say whether Gordon (ankle) will be available Monday at San Francisco, Brady Henderson of ESPN.com reports.
Speaking to the media Friday, Carroll said Gordon "looked pretty good," but the Seahawks will "take it all the way to Monday" as it pertains to his availability. After picking him up off waivers late last week, Gordon was limited at Thursday's practice due to an ankle injury, so health seemingly will play a role in the decision-making process. Because the team doesn't suit up until Monday night, managers will be taking a risk by including him in Week 10 lineups.
Gordon (ankle) was listed as limited on the Seahawks' injury report Thursday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.
Gordon spent the last few weeks of his Patriots tenure on the sideline due to knee and ankle injuries and even was on injured reserve for the final week before he was cut. In his first practice since the Seahawks claimed him off waivers, he's ditched the knee issue, but the ankle concern still is in tow. He'll look to get clearance for Monday's game at San Francisco as he attempts to get up to speed with a new playbook.
Gordon is scheduled to practice Thursday, with coach Pete Carroll noting that the wide receiver shouldn't have much trouble learning the Seahawks' playbook, Brady Henderson of ESPN.com reports. "He's a smart football guy," Carroll said. "He's going to get it. It's not going to take him very long."
The Seahawks are trying to prepare Gordon for Monday's game against the 49ers, though he'll likely have a part-time role if he's deemed ready to play. He was claimed off waivers last Friday and passed a physical at the beginning of this week. The knee injury he suffered with the Patriots doesn't seem to be an issue at this stage.
