Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon was suspended without pay for the first two regular-season games of the season and fined two additional game checks for violating the NFL Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse.
Gordon is eligible to return to the Browns' active roster on Sept. 16. He is eligible to participate in all preseason practices and games.
Last season, Gordon made 50 catches for 805 yards with five touchdowns.

---Wide receiver Donte Stallworth could return to the Washington Redskins.
Stallworth, 32, played for the Redskins in 2011, catching two touchdown passes with 22 total receptions in 11 games. He'll practice with the Redskins next week, when they hold a three-day minicamp Tuesday through Thursday.
Stallworth will be one of 11 wide receivers on the practice field

---Former Buffalo Bills quarterback Jim Kelly had a cancerous bone removed from his jaw. In a statement, Buffalo's Erie County Medical Center said that Kelly is expected to fully recover following the surgery.
Kelly, 53, announced his diagnosis on Monday. He said that the cancer was found two weeks earlier.
It is not clear if he will need chemotherapy.

---Former Green Bay Packers quarterback Brett Favre told a Buffalo, N.Y., radio station that he shares blame for the sour relationship that developed between him and the team.
Favre left the Packers on bad terms after the 2007 season. Favre went on to play for the New York Jets and Minnesota Vikings before retiring three years later. He created drama each offseason from 2007-09 by retiring and unretiring.
"It's over and done with," Favre told WGR 550-AM on Thursday. "I was at fault. I feel that both sides had a part in it. If you could go back, would I or them have done things differently? I'm sure both sides would. But you can't."

--The Baltimore Ravens want outside linebacker Courtney Upshaw to get in better shape and improve his diet.
Upshaw, in his second year, acknowledged that he's up to 285 pounds after getting below 270 pounds last season. He initially failed the conditioning test during his first NFL training camp as a rookie.
"Courtney's weight issue -- he does need to lose some pounds -- is that he doesn't eat right," Ravens coach John Harbaugh said. "Courtney eats too much and he doesn't eat all of the right foods. He knows that and that's something he's going to have to get a handle on or he's not going to be the best that he can be."

--- Terrell Owens said he will retire if he is not signed by a team for the upcoming season.
"If I play this year, that'd be awesome. If I don't play this year, I'm retiring," Owens told "That's just me being realistic."
Owens is a free agent after being released by Seattle last August.
