Josh Gordon is still practicing and working out with the Cleveland Browns despite a looming suspension. The stress of the suspension is reportedly wearing on Gordon.
That stress is causing Gordon to not practice as hard as some in the organization would prefer. Browns head coach Mike Pettine told 92.3 The Fan that Gordon didn’t always exert himself fully in practice.
“It is something we’ve talked about and from what I understand he’s made some improvement, but it is a work in progress,” Pettine said, via Mary Kay Cabot of theCleveland Plain Dealer. “I’m a big believer in quality of reps versus quantity of reps. If I’m a player and I know that I’m going to be out there for 40 full-speed team snaps I may have a tendency to pace myself.
“There still needs to be improvement there but we’re aware of it.”
That lack of urgency is why Gordon is facing a suspension now.Powered by Sidelines
