He wasn't supposed to start as punishment for missing training camp, but Gordon was on the field for the first offensive play because of a "miscommunication", according to coach Hue Jackson. Now, it appears Gordon will get the official go-ahead and be on the field to start the game this coming Sunday for the Cleveland Browns. "He has to continue to work to be in the right spot".

Although it was a limited appearance for star wide receiver Josh Gordon, he made his impact felt with a 17-yard touchdown connection with quarterback Tyrod Taylor to tie the game with just under two minutes left in the fourth quarter.

"Obviously, I have a lot of trust and confidence in him", Brees said.

There is a clear bond between Taylor and Gordon that could help the Browns achieve much success on the field in the passing game.

"I was not (surprised)", Taylor said, via the Cleveland Plain Dealer. "It just happened to be one of those games where I think he was in the right position at the right time and was getting those opportunities". "That starts with myself". Despite claims that Gordon wouldn't start in the opener, he started and played 69-of-89 snaps, finishing with just 1 catch on 3 targets, although the lone snag was a attractive 17-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter.

Gordon tried to make a play on the ball but the throw was just too short. "I'm just going to keep on running until I have the opportunity".

Sometimes all it takes is one person speaking up for you, acknowledging your worth as a human being. Munn posted Carnes' entire statement on Twitter, along with a note of encouragement.

"Definitely wish some things could just be altered in the course of the game", Gordon said September 12 as the Browns ramped up preparation for the September 16 game in New Orleans.

Jackson felt there were more opportunities for both Taylor and Gordon to link up against the Steelers but the responsibility is shared by both players for not taking advantage.

On Sept. 10, Jackson said starting Gordon was "a mistake" but refused to assign blame and insisted the team had "worked through it". He returned in December from a multiyear suspension, catching 18 passes for 335 yards and a touchdown in five games last season.

"Definitely pass interference", Gordon said.

"That's what the offense is created to do and that is what we are going to try and accomplish".
