BEREA, Ohio (July 28, 2012) -- Three days into his first NFL training camp, Josh Gordon is making an impact with the Cleveland Browns.
Practicing in front of fans for the first time Saturday, the wide receiver made several nice catches and heard cheers.
He also dropped a 40-yard pass in the corner of the end zone and had veteran defensive back Joe Haden nastily knock him off stride.
Coach Pat Shurmur says it's part of the learning process for Gordon, a second-round pick in the supplemental draft. Gordon has more catching up to do than most rookies. He missed a lot of time in college due to failed drug tests at Baylor and Utah.
Starting defensive lineman Ahtyba Rubin and tight end Evan Moore again did not practice. Shurmur says both should be back soon.
