CLEVELAND -- While Josh Gordon waits to hear from the NFL, the Cleveland Browns think they have an idea about what is going to happen. Coach Mike Pettine said Sunday that Gordon did not play in the Browns previous exhibition game because the team is preparing to be without the All-Pro wide receiver for at least part of the season. Gordon is waiting to hear from the NFL regarding his appeal of a possible yearlong suspension for again violating the leagues substance-abuse program. He has been practicing and playing for weeks amid uncertainty about his career. "Knowing that the decision is looming -- that were fairly certain that were not going to have him for a minimum of some part of the year -- we wanted to make sure that we were getting repetitions with the guys that are going to be out there early," Pettine said. The 23-year-old Gordon set the clubs single-season franchise record with an NFL-best 1,646 yards receiving last year despite being suspended for the first two games. The breakout performance included one dazzling four-game stretch where had 36 receptions for 774 yards and five touchdowns. But he has struggled in his preparations for this year, dropping passes during practices and preseason games. He hasnt spoken to reporters for months, and Pettine said his uncertain future is weighing on him. An unspecified injury also contributed to Gordon being held out for Saturday nights 33-14 loss to St. Louis, Pettine said. "As the game went on and there was the opportunity for him to get in there, with just the minor injury that he had, he wasnt loose," Pettine said. "I consulted with (wide receivers) coach (Mike) McDaniel and at that point we just didnt feel comfortable putting him in. It wasnt anything from a punishment standpoint or anything like that.

General manager Doug Whaley provided the update in a statement released by the team on Wednesday, a day after Alonso was hurt while working out in Oregon. Whaley said Alonso will require surgery to repair a torn ACL, and "will likely miss the 2014 season." The Bills did not provide any details as to how Alonso was hurt. The injury is a significant blow to the Bills before they even open training camp in suburban Rochester on July 20. Alonso was an NFL defensive rookie of the year contender last season after being drafted in the second round out of Oregon. He led Buffalo with 159 tackles, two fumble recoveries and tied for the team lead with four interceptions while barely missing a snap in playing all 16 games. After playing in the middle last season, Alonso was moving to the outside linebacker spot as part of the Bills shift to a 4-3 defensive scheme under new co-ordinator Jim Schwartz.dddddddddddd The position switch was also sparked in part by the Bills signing of run-stopping specialist Brandon Spikes, who is better suited to play in the middle. Alonso had hip surgery this off-season, which limited him in participating in spring practices. But he was expected to be ready for the start of camp. "We feel badly for Kiko, because he has worked very hard this off-season in preparation for the upcoming season," Whaley said. "But we look forward to his return with his style of play that made him one of the leagues outstanding rookies in 2013." The Bills do have some depth behind Alonso. Manny Lawson, an eight-year NFL veteran, has experience playing the position. The Bills also selected linebacker Preston Brown in the third round of the draft in April.
