Josh Gordon only had one catch in Week 1 for the Browns, but he made it count. The star wide receiver hauled in a 17-yard touchdown that tied the game at 21.

He got a late start at camp in the summer, and has been dealing with a hamstring issue early on this season.

The Browns travel to New Orleans to face the Saints this weekend. Unfortunately for Tyrod Taylor and company, they will be without Gordon.

Josh Gordon is one of three Browns ruled out for tomorrow's game.

From the team website:

Cleveland on Saturday ruled out veteran linebacker Christian Kirksey (shoulder/ankle), wide receiver Josh Gordon (hamstring) and tight end Seth DeValve (hamstring) for Sunday's game against the Saints.


Gordon, meanwhile, caught one pass for a 17-yard touchdown in last week's tie against the Pittsburgh Steelers. He dealt with a minor hamstring injury last month upon returning to the team following a leave of absence. Without him, the Browns will lean on three-time Pro Bowler Jarvis Landry, rookie Antonio Callaway and third-year player Rashard Higgins to fill the void.

Gordon has had a trying career, with serious off-field issues sidelining him for much of the last three seasons.

When healthy and active, though, there are few better big play threats. In 2013, his last full season, Gordon went for 1,646 yards and nine touchdowns.
