Browns WR Gordon returns after head injury
CLEVELAND (AP) — Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon has returned to the game after he sustained a head injury in the third quarter against Jacksonville.
Gordon had his helmet knocked off by Jaguars safety Winston Guy as he attempted to make a leaping catch near the sideline from quarterback Brandon Weeden, who tried to thread the ball between two defenders. Gordon’s head snapped back as he landed and he appeared to hit it on the hard ground. He walked off the field under his power, and after being examined on the sideline, he was taken to the locker room for further evaluation.
Guy was penalized for making a hit on a defenseless receiver.
Gordon returned just before the end of the third quarter and immediately caught a 10-yard pass. Before he was injured, Gordon caught seven passes for 149 yards and a touchdown.
Last week, the second-year pro tied a club mark with 14 receptions and set a record with 237 yards.
