Josh Gordon's agent has revealed that the hearing into the wide receiver's suspension is due to take place in the "near future".

The Cleveland Browns wideout is facing a one-year suspension from the NFL after being found to have breached the league's substance-abuse policy.

Drew Rosenhaus told the Cleveland Plain Dealer: "Let's just say [the hearing is] some point in the near future. I'm not permitted to divulge [the specific date].

"I really don't have anything to add about Josh's situation. Right now that's a league matter and as everyone knows he's got an appeal coming up and I really won't have anything to say about it until afterwards."

Gordon led the NFL in receiving yards in 2013.
