The Cowboys will have Aldon Smith against the Seahawks. The Seahawks won’t have Josh Gordon against the Cowboys.
While Smith picked up reestablishment from NFL magistrate Roger Goodell, and Cowboys defensive end Randy Gregory conditional reinstatement, the Seahawks have no clue about when the league will permit Gordon to return.
“I don’t know,” Carroll said, via Gregg Bell of The News Tribune, “because we can’t talk about it.”
The Seahawks signed Gordon 22 days back, assuming Gordon would get approval from the league office to play once more. As it stands now, Gordon stays on the reserve/suspended list and can’t to such an extent as watch coaches’ film of the past game.
Bell wrote that Carroll has “sounded increasingly frustrated over the stalled situation.” Gordon is serving his seventh NFL suspension since he entered the association, his second in a year.
Gordon has not played an entire, 16-game season since his rookie year of 2012. He played five games with the Seahawks and six with the Patriots last season.
The Seahawks could use Gordon in the wake of placing Phillip Dorsett on harmed reserve this week.
