Browns surprisingly rule out star WR Josh Gordon vs. Saints – (Saints Wire) Saints News

The Cleveland Browns created a stir on Saturday afternoon when ESPN insider Adam Schefter reported that star wide receiver Josh Gordon will be ruled out to play against the New Orleans Saints with a hamstring injury.”>Shh! TheHuddle: Fantasy football’s secret weapon.

Schefter reported that several other Browns will not play in Week 2, including starting linebacker Christian Kirksey (shoulder, ankle) and tight end Seth DeValve (hamstring). This is a big surprise because neither Gordon nor DeValve were listed on the official injury reports during the week, only to be held out at the last minute. Kirksey began the week as a full participant but suffered some sort of setback, and was limited to close out the practices.
NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport explained that Gordon reported to the team facility on Saturday with some hamstring soreness, and Browns medical staffers decided to keep him out of this week’s game as a precaution.
This is a big break for the Saints’ defense. While Gordon caught just one pass in Week 1 against the Pittsburgh Steelers, it was a 17-yard touchdown to tie the game. He played 44 snaps and showed plenty of the electric playmaking tendencies that have helped him stick around Cleveland for so long.
