Gordon, Kirksey and DeValve out for Browns vs. Saints

Cleveland will be without starting receiver Josh Gordon in Week 2, the team announced on Saturday.

Gordon played 78 percent of the team's offensive snaps in the opening-week tie against the Steelers, even drawing an unexpected start that coach Hue Jackson called a "mistake" due to miscommunication with his offensive coordinator. He practiced all week and was not listed on the injury report. Gordon did not travel with the team to Louisiana.

Along with Gordon, the Browns also will be missing three other starters: defensive end Emmanuel Ogbah (ankle), linebacker Christian Kirksey (shoulder/ankle) and tight end Seth DeValve (hamstring).

Gordon missed much of training camp when he took a leave of absence for treatment for drug and alcohol addiction. Cleveland won't be in unfamiliar territory with Gordon on the sideline, though, as the 2012 Pro Bowler has missed 38 games since 2014.

The receiver caught just one pass on three targets, but it was a 17-yard touchdown that tied the game with less than two minutes left in regulation. A team spokesman said Gordon complained of hamstring soreness and was ruled out.

Tune in to see if the Browns can finally get that elusive first win since the 2016 season.
