CLEVELAND– The arrest warrant for Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon was rescinded on Wednesday, his attorney told FOX 8 News.

Gordon did not address several subpoenas related to the paternity of a 1-year-old girl, the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor’s Office said. That prompted a judge to issue the warrant last month.

Attorney Kevin Spellacy said his client submitted a DNA sample so the warrant was rescinded. He also said Gordon was never served in the first place.

Gordon has another hearing in the case on Nov. 8.

The trouble wide receiver is not eligible for the first four games for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy. Gordon has not played in a regular season game since 2014.

NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said Gordon’s eligibility is not affected by the paternity issue.
