Gordon, Kirksey and DeValve out for Browns vs. Saints

Josh Gordon's season is already off course.

The Browns announced on Saturday that they will part ways with receiver Josh Gordon following the team's Week 2 game against the Saints.

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. A report emerged from NFL.com shortly after the Browns' announcement that how he injured the hamstring after being healthy at practice on Friday played a part in the decision to release the receiver. Gordon did not travel with the team to Louisiana. Gordon will miss the Browns' trip to New Orleans with a hamstring injury.

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

IPhone Xzzz: the majority didn't care about the Apple event
Now, according to a new report by The Verge , IDC has claimed delay in Apple iPhone XR shipments could be due to a hardware issue. The bigger question is whether you consider the iPhone XR's $750 a reasonable price for a new iPhone that isn't its top flagship.

Gordon was expected to have an expanded role against the Saints after being targeted just three times last week in a tie against Pittsburgh.

Gordon missed much of training camp when he took a leave of absence for treatment for drug and alcohol addiction. He's the same guy who caught 87 passes for 1,646 yards and nine touchdowns in 2013 and earned first-team All-Pro honors.

A Cleveland Browns helmet rests on the field prior to the game against the Philadelphia Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field on September 11, 2016 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. It was the first time he had played in Week 1 since his rookie season. Jackson blamed Gordon's appearance on the first play to a "mistake" and "miscommunication".
