The Cleveland Browns ruled out wide receiver Josh Gordon of Sunday’s game against the Saints because of a hamstring injury.

Gordon, who was only added to the injury list on Saturday, only caught one pass for 17 yards in the Browns’ Week 1 tie with the Steelers.

Quarterback Tyrod Taylor only targeted Gordon three times, but coach Hue Jackson said earlier this week that some early-season miscommunication was at play last week, and the Browns still had big plans for Gordon’s the receiver’s role this season.

“Josh, when he is going like we know he can, he has an opportunity to make plays,” Jackson said Wednesday. “He has to continue to work to be in the right spot. We have to give him opportunities, and I think that we will do that.”

The Browns also ruled out linebacker Christian Kirksey (shoulder/ankle) and tight end Seth DeValve (hamstring).

Kirksey, who had previously been listed as questionable, will miss the first game of his five-year career.
