Reports: Chiefs elevate WR Josh Gordon to active roster
The Kansas City Chiefs are promoting wide receiver Josh Gordon to the 53-man active roster, multiple media outlets reported on Tuesday.
The Chiefs have yet to announce the move as of early Tuesday afternoon. A promotion for Gordon, however, would put him in line to make his season debut on Sunday night when the Chiefs (2-2) host the Buffalo Bills (3-1).
Gordon, 30, signed with the Chiefs late last month, shortly after the NFL reinstated him from an indefinite suspension he received in December 2019. Gordon was suspended for substance abuse and performance-enhancing substance violations.
A subsequent reinstatement in December 2020 lasted only a month — with no on-field appearances — and was rescinded in January 2021.
Gordon entered the league in the 2012 supplemental draft, selected in the second round — No. 1 overall — by the Browns. He played in Cleveland until 2018 — he missed 2015-16 due to suspension — then played parts of 2018-19 with the New England Patriots before moving on to Seattle.
Gordon has 247 career receptions for 4,252 yards with 20 touchdowns in 63 games (56 starts).
