If all goes according to plan, the Cleveland Browns will have star wide receiver Josh Gordon back on the field Week 13 against the Los Angeles Chargers. Gordon was reinstated by the NFL back in October after having sat out since the 2014 season to suspension.

He’s now set to take the practice field for Cleveland on Wednesday.

It’s all part of a process that should lead him to live-game action for the first time since December of 2014. Since then, Gordon has been suspended multiple times for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy.

His reinstatement is conditional, so the talented receiver will have to remain clean in order to continue his NFL career.

Gordon, 26, led the NFL with 1,646 receiving yards en route to earning All-Pro honors with the Browns back in 2013. Once he returns, the receiver would immediately become the team’s most-talented offensive player.
