The NFL on Wednesday conditionally reinstated Browns WR Josh Gordon. "Effective immediately, Gordon may join the Browns to attend meetings, engage in conditioning work and individual workouts," the league stated in a release. "Subject to compliance with clinical and other requirements, he will be placed on the Commissioner's Exempt list and be permitted to practice with the team beginning on Monday, November 20. Beginning Monday, November 27, Gordon will be eligible at the team's discretion to return to active status or to remain on the Commissioner's Exempt list for an additional week before returning to active status." The key date here is Nov. 27. We'll see if the Browns want to activate him after Thanksgiving. If they do, he'll be eligible to play the final 5 games -- final 4 of most fantasy seasons. That would return him for a tough run that includes road games at the Chargers (Week 13), Bears (Week 16 and Steelers (Week 17), plus a home date with Baltimore (Week 15). Gordon will be worth a shot in many leagues, but don't go nuts over him, especially in an offense with the league's worst QB situation.

Seahawks WR Josh Gordon is active for tonight's game against the 49ers. We'll be keeping a close eye on how big a role he plays in his team debut, but he's nothing more than a DFS flier tonight.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll said there's a "good chance" WR Josh Gordon plays against the 49ers on Monday night. "He did really well," Carroll said of Gordon's first week of practice with the team. "He was very impressive in terms of picking stuff up, studying overtime. He fit in really well. He's a really good athlete. You can really tell that he's got a lot of potential to be a big-time player, so it was fun to see him on the practice field. He did a nice job." We'll see exactly how big a role Gordon plays after joining the team a little over a week ago, but he shouldn't be in Week 10 fantasy lineups.

The Seahawks have claimed WR Josh Gordon off waivers. It's an interesting landing spot, to say the least. We'll see when Gordon is healthy enough and comfortable enough in Seattle's offense to play, but he's worth a stash in deeper fantasy leagues.

The Patriots are releasing WR Josh Gordon from IR, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. We'll see where he lands and then when he's able to return from his knee injury. Gordon is worth stashing in deeper fantasy leagues but isn't a great bet to re-emerge as a bankable fantasy asset down the stretch.

The Patriots have placed WR Josh Gordon on IR with 2 bone bruises to his knee. The injuries are reportedly minor, though, and New England plans to release Gordon as soon as he's healthy. NFL Network's Mike Garafolo hears that could happen "soon," which would free up Gordon to sign elsewhere. With his status in limbo, he might be worth holding on to in fantasy leagues with deeper benches. But he's also droppable if you need immediate help. The Patriots, meanwhile, will move forward with Julian Edelman, Phillip Dorsett and the newly acquired Mohamed Sanu as their top 3 WRs. They're also expected to get 1st-round rookie WR N'Keal Harry back in Week 9.
