Over the past eight years, Gordon has been suspended a whopping five times. This is the second indefinite suspension in the past two years.

Gordon was conditionally reinstated in August, just in time to play six games with the New England Patriots this year before being picked up off waivers by the Seahawks.
Gordon has a long history of mental health and substance abuse issues, missing two full seasons while being suspended when he was a member of the Cleveland Browns, but was conditionally reinstated by the NFL in November 2017.
The Seahawks will continue on without Gordon, playing next against the Arizona Cardinals at CenturyLink Field on Sunday, December 22.
