BEREA (AP) — Browns Pro Bowl wide receiver Josh Gordon has pleaded not guilty to a speeding ticket.

Gordon, who is awaiting a possible NFL suspension for failing a drug test, did not appear as scheduled in Berea Municipal Court on Wednesday. According to the court’s website, his attorney entered a not guilty plea Tuesday. There is no new court date.

Gordon was stopped for going 74 mph in a 60 mph zone on May 25. He was fined $187. His passenger was cited for possession of less than 200 grams of marijuana.

Gordon could be facing a one-season suspension for another failed drug test. He was suspended two games last season for violating the league’s substance-abuse policy. He led the league in yards receiving.

Gordon has continued to practice with the team.
