Baylor indefinitely suspends WR Gordon


WACO (AP) — Baylor receiver Josh Gordon has been suspended indefinitely from the football program for violation of team rules.

Coach Art Briles announced the suspension in a release Saturday, but did not specify the violation.

Gordon caught 42 passes for 714 yards and seven TDs as a sophomore last season. He started five games and made the longest reception in school history, a 94-yard score in a win over Kansas in 2010.

On Oct. 3, 2010, Gordon and tight end Willie Herbert Jefferson III were arrested on charges of misdemeanor marijuana possession. Jefferson III was dismissed the same month, just days after yet another arrest on drug charges, for violating unspecified team rules.
