Josh Gordon Reinstated, Suspended Four Games

Per Ian Rapoport on Twitter. Suspended for the first four games, but Josh Gordon is eligible to play after that. The talented and troubled receiver finished ninth in receiving DYAR in 2013, but played just five games in 2014 and did not play in 2015.

Le'Veon Bell Facing Four-Game Suspension

It's not yet official because of an appeal, but Le'Veon Bell is facing a four-game suspension for another violation of league drug policy. This time, it's for missing a test, not for failing one.

There's no division where the four teams are closer together in quality right now. You also have to remember that the Texans still aren't sure who is going to replace Jared Crick. Now they might need two new 5-technique ends for the first month of the season. Yikes.
