NFL Injury Report: Josh Gordon injured in season's final game

US PRESSWIRE

Cleveland's top receiver went down in the first half vs. the Steelers.

The Cleveland Browns ended their 2012 season on a sour note on Sunday with a road loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. It was a loss punctuated by the injury to star wide receiver Josh Gordon, who hurt his ankle in the second quarter of the game and was carted to the locker room.

The severity of Gordon's injury has not yet been revealed, but it is not expected to have any long-term effects. That would be good news for a Browns team that sorely needs to nurture its young talent. Gordon was arguably the team's best player this season, catching 50 passes for 805 yards and five touchdowns.

Gordon was taken in the second round of the supplemental draft by Cleveland, and it was a risk that proved to pay off. The franchise has been searching for a legitimate receiving threat for years, and though Gordon can certainly improve his all-around game, he may soon be that player for the Browns.
