Josh Gordon will not be with the Cleveland Browns when they open training camp Thursday, citing his "health and treatment plan" as part of his return from multiple substance-related suspensions.

Gordon is seeking additional counseling before camp opens to deal with his mental health and anxiety.

Gordon has typically used alcohol and marijuana when he was anxious, which he cannot do due to the NFL's substance abuse policy.

Gordon has regularly been in touch with his counselors and was told to take the extra time in a proactive move.
