Josh Gordon, Christian Kirksey ruled out vs. Saints

Browns surprisingly rule out star WR Josh Gordon vs. Saints

According to multiple sources, Gordon came in late to team facilities Saturday, suffering from a hamstring injury sustained during a promotional shoot per Adam Schefter. The Browns ruled him out for Sunday's matchup with the New Orleans Saints before deciding to release him.

Josh Gordon's season is already off course.

The fact that Cabot is reporting Gordon was "not himself" is a really bad sign for a guy who has struggled with substance abuse issues for years. Gordon did not travel with the team to Louisiana.

Also out for the match-up: tight end Seth DeValve (hamstring), linebacker Christian Kirksey (shoulder/ankle).

This is the first game Kirksey will miss since he was drafted in 2014. He missed training camp this summer to receive counseling and treatment for drug and alcohol dependence. He was suspended for the entire 2015 and 2016 seasons and has only played in 11 games since the end of the 2013 season. Gordon was slowed by a hamstring issue when he finally reported, but it's not clear if his new injury is the same hamstring.

All three played in the Week 1 tie with the Steelers.

"The 6'3" wideout hauled in one reception on Sunday, a 17-yard touchdown catch from quarterback Tyrod Taylor. Factoring the off-the-field concerns into what was possibly going to be a diminished product due to the time away from the field and an inability to remain healthy undoubtedly played a part in the decision.

Jackson refused to elaborate on the situation this week, saying he and the coaching staff wanted to "move on".
