CLEVELAND — The Cleveland Browns cleared a roster spot for suspended wide receiver Josh Gordon’s return by waiving wide receiver Tori Gurley and releasing wide receiver Arceto Clark.

Gordon was suspended from Cleveland’s first two games for violating the NFL’s substance-abuse policy. He’ll practice today and is scheduled to play in Sunday’s game at Minnesota.

On Monday, Gordon said he was humbled by the experience. He’s out of chances and confirmed that if he fails another drug test, he’ll be suspended for one year. Gordon, who was suspended in college for marijuana use, caught 50 passes for 805 yards and scored five touchdowns as a rookie.

Commissioner Roger Goodell granted Gordon a roster exemption, which expires today.

Gurley was promoted from the practice squad to the active roster Sept. 7. He caught one pass for 15 yards.
