Six days after bizarrely starting the Week 1 tie against the Pittsburgh Steelers despite head coach Hue Jackson claiming he would not, the much-maligned wide receiver Josh Gordon has been informed that he will be released and subject to waivers on Monday. A team spokesman said Gordon reported Saturday complaining of soreness in his hamstring and the team determined he could not play. He had been ruled out for their Week 2 matchup against the New Orleans Saints due to a hamstring injury.

Gordon and DeValve both have injured hamstrings, while Kirksey, a team captain, is battling both a shoulder and an ankle issue.

The team announced Gordon's status on Saturday before flying to Louisiana.

It remains to be seen whether moving on from Gordon will prompt the Browns to revisit contract talks with free-agent receiver Dez Bryant.

Gordon was healthy for and during Friday's practice, usually when teams start to make final decisions on roster counts for Sunday's matchups.

Dorsey didn't shut the door on the possibility of signing Bryant when the GM spoke to the Beacon Journal/Ohio.com on September 4. Although he missed the first two games of the 2013 season due to suspension, he led the league with 1,646 receiving yards on 87 catches and scored nine touchdowns en route to Pro Bowl and All-Pro honors. He did not play in any of the four preseason games.
