Gordon didn't play between Week 16 of the 2014 season and Week 13 of the 2017 season, mostly due to an indefinite suspension as he worked toward reinstatement.

The 27-year-old announced on Twitter Thursday that he was leaving the team with two weeks left in the regular season to focus on his mental health.

The receiver, who has been a standout for the Pats since he was acquired in a trade from the Cleveland Browns, said, "I take my mental health very seriously at this point to ensure I remain able to perform at the highest level". In their statement, the Patriots said they support Gordon in his efforts to focus on his mental health, and will respect his privacy as he handles this personal matter.

However, NFL Media reported shortly after Gordon's tweet that the receiver is facing another indefinite suspension for violating terms of his reinstatement under the substance abuse policy. 'I have recently felt like I could have a better grasp on things mentally.

Sudan President becomes first Arab leader to visit Syria since civil war
A Sudanese official late Sunday said that Bashir had returned to Khartoum "from an important visit" to the Syrian capital. However, Khartoum refused to sever ties with Damascus even as the conflict descended into a civil war.

The timing is hard for the Patriots as Gordon, 27, has become a consistent contributor on their offense since being acquired from the Browns.

The Browns selected him in the second round of the 2012 Supplemental Draft and he was first suspended in 2013.

We know what the Patriots' offense looked like early in the season without Gordon and Edelman, and it wasn't pretty. His run with the team ends for 2018 having posted 40 catches for 720 yards and three touchdowns. New England now is the No. 3 seed in the AFC behind Kansas City and Houston, and hasn't been a great road team this season.

Let's all hope Gordon gets better soon.
