Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon is eligible to practice after he was removed from the non-football injury list.

Gordon, who was away from the Browns for much of training camp while completing a health treatment program, is cleared to participate in all football activities but was a spectator during Saturday's afternoon drills because of tightness in his hamstrings.

Cleveland coach Hue Jackson told reporters on Friday that Gordon will be eligible to practice but said his workload will be monitored.

"Josh Gordon will be at practice every day, but you are asking if he will be practicing. Probably -- again he is into the second phase of where I want him to be," said Jackson. "He'll definitely be involved in walk-throughs now. How much he does will be in proportion of what I see and where he is."

Gordon has missed the majority of the last three seasons because of suspensions related to violations of the NFL's substance abuse policy. He rejoined the team last weekend after taking time off to focus on a treatment program in Gainesville, Fla. He spent 90 days last summer and fall in an inpatient rehab facility in Gainesville.
