of the first quarter to tie the ga

BEREA, Ohio -- As his teammates sweated through another training camp practice, Josh Gordon was in a New York office building where his career -- and Clevelands season -- were in jeopardy. Nat Moore Jersey . Gordon met Friday with NFL officials to appeal a possible indefinite suspension for violating the leagues substance abuse policy. Gordons attorney, Maurice Suh, and other members of his legal team were expected to argue that Gordon tested positive for marijuana because of secondhand smoke, a defence they planned to augment with witnesses. No decision on Gordon is expected for several days, and the Browns are keeping their fingers crossed the outcome will be favourable. According to ESPN Cleveland, it is believed a verdict may be reached on Monday, once commissioner Roger Goodell returns from Canton, Ohio. "Im an optimistic guy," said wide receiver Nate Burleson. "Im a glass half-full guy, so Im always hoping and expecting the best-case scenario." Until they hear from the league, the Browns are going about the business of getting ready for the upcoming season. Theyd love to have Gordon for as many games as possible. After all, hes the clubs top playmaker, one of the leagues elite receivers and an offensive threat who keeps defensive co-ordinators awake at night. To be without him for any time will drastically change Clevelands offence. Gordon has not been at training camp the past two days, and Browns coach Mike Pettine said he didnt know if the Pro Bowler will be on the field for Saturdays scrimmage in Akron. Gordons situation is one of many cases on the leagues legal itinerary. Commissioner Roger Goodell, speaking at the Hall of Fame in Canton, addressed the leagues recent decision to suspend Baltimore running back Ray Rice two games for domestic violence, a ruling met with public outrage. Goodell defended the leagues actions and said each case must be judged on its own merits. "You have to deal with the facts," he said. "We have a drug program that is collectively bargained and it has a step process. It takes four incidents before you actually reach a suspension in a drug-related case. You have to respond to facts here. You have a lot of people voicing their opinions, but what you have to understand is that this is a young man (Rice) who made a terrible mistake -- its inconsistent with what were all about. "We have dealt with it in a serious manner, and were very confident that this young man understands where he is and what he needs to do going forward." Goodell did not offer much information on Gordons case, saying a decision will be based on the information at the hearing. "Josh is going through a process right now, and Im not part of that process," Goodell said. "At some point in time I may have an opportunity to be involved, and when I am, I look forward to meeting him." Gordons list of off-the-field issues is lengthy, which may hinder his argument. He failed at least three known drug tests in college and he was suspended two games last season for a drug violation. Separate from his appeal, Gordon could still face league discipline under the leagues personal-conduct policy for his arrest last month on a DUI charge in Raleigh, North Carolina. Gordon reportedly checked himself into a rehab clinic in California following the arrest. Pettine has said the Browns will have to go with a receiver-by-committee approach if Gordon cant play. Slot receiver Andrew Hawkins is confident he and his teammates can pick up the slack. "We have a bunch of hard-working guys with chips on their shoulders who are going to come out here and bust their butts every day," he said. "And Ill take that 10 times out of 10." NOTES: Starting free safety Tashaun Gipson walked off the practice field with an apparent left knee injury. Pettine said Gipson, who started 15 games last season, was being evaluated. ... Pettine ended practice by having members of his staff catch punts. Pitting the offensive assistants against the defensive assistants, the competition energized the players, who engaged in some spirited trash talk and finger pointing before offensive intern Mike LaFleur caught the final punt, meaning the offence will wear orange jerseys Monday. "I would of lost a lot of money if you would have said wed put eight coaches out there catching knuckle-ball punts and seven of them would catch it," Pettine said. "Those guys stepped up. It was impressive." ... Several offensive players celebrated touchdowns, none more demonstratively that Anthony Armstrong, who threw the ball into the second level of the VIP hospitality tent. "It was strictly spur of the moment," he said. "Your emotions take over." Anthony Fasano Jersey .

DENVER -- Brian Shaw had to sweat out his first win as an NBA coach right to the final horn. When it was finally over, relief trumped joy. Ty Lawson had 23 points, eight assists and seven rebounds and the Denver Nuggets held on to beat the Atlanta Hawks 109-107 on Thursday night for Shaws first victory. "I feel relieved to finally get it," he said. "It wasnt easy." Nate Robinson added 15 points and JaVale McGee had 14 for Denver (1-3), which rallied from eight points down in the fourth quarter before surviving a late Atlanta rally.

Al Horford, who had 21 points, grabbed the rebound but his shot was off as time expired. When Horfords shot skimmed off the rim, the Nuggets could finally relax. "Nothing is going to be easy with this team, every night its going to be a dog fight," Shaw said. "We almost did everything in our power to not win it." The Nuggets led by as many as nine points in the first half and five in the third quarter but found themselves trailing in the final 7 minutes. The Hawks took the lead early in the fourth quarter when Kyle Korver hit a 3-pointer and Shelvin Macks desperation heave at the shot-clock buzzer made it 93-88. Macks layup and a basket by Jeff Teague extended the lead to 98-90 with 6:52 left. "It was hectic," Horford said. "I felt like when we were up 98-92 it was a good chance for us to put them away and we werent able to. They kept making tough shots." Denver rallied to take the lead on Lawsons jumper with 1:46 left and his 3-pointer made it 107-102 with 59 seconds remaining. "They were making big plays, we were making big plays," Lawson said. "I tried to tell our guys they were going to make another push and the game wasnt over." The Hawks proved him right by mounting a comeback. Teagues basket made it a three-point game and Millsap hit two free throws with 26 seconds left to make it 107-106. Custom Miami Dolphins Jerseys. Robinson and Millsap traded free throws, and Lawson hit 1 of 2 from the line to make it 109-107. Atlanta called time out to set up a play, and the ball went into Millsap. His turnaround jumper over Andre Miller -- giving up 6 inches -- was short, Horford got the rebound but missed a short jumper. "I had a smaller guy on me so I figured I could shoot over the top of him," said Millsap, who missed his final four shots after starting 10 of 11 from the field. "I knew it would be difficult to get to the basket. I settled for my step-back jump shot. I felt like it was a good shot, it didnt go in." The veteran Miller was expecting Millsap to go to the basket. "I didnt think he was going to post me, I thought they were going to go to the pick-and-roll but luckily I got him off the block enough," Miller said. He did enough to help the Nuggets avoid starting 0-4 for the first time since the lockout-shortened 1999 season. "It was weighing on everybody. Coach Shaw, the assistant coaches had speeches for us today," Lawson said. "To get this monkey off our back feels good for everyone." The Nuggets used an 11-2 run at the end of the first quarter to tie the game at 26-all. Evan Fournier hit two 3-pointers to bring Denver close after Atlanta had scored 14 straight to take a 10-point lead. Denver went up 44-35 midway through the second when JaVale McGee slammed a lob from Randy Foye, but the Hawks went on a 13-4 run to tie it at 48.
