Josh Gordon has returned to the Cleveland Browns after spending time away from the team to work on his mental and physical health.

"As I humbly return to being a member of this team with an opportunity to get back to playing this game I love, I realize in order for me to reach my full potential, my primary focus must remain on my sobriety and mental well-being," Gordon said in a statement Saturday.

League sources had told ESPN's Adam Schefter that Gordon was seeking additional counseling to deal with his mental health and anxiety. 

"I never lost trust in him," Browns coach Hue Jackson said Saturday. "Obviously, he was doing something to make himself better and put himself in a better place, which I think is very important. I think the health part for him is real important, and I get that and respect that.

"I think at the same time, what's very important is that he continues to do the things that the organization has set forth and that the football team has set forth. I think Josh understands that, and I think he is willing to do that and that will happen over time. In time, I think it will show exactly where he is."
