BEREA, Ohio -- Josh Gordon got in some practice time before returning to plead his case to the NFL. Clevelands Pro Bowl wide receiver took part in the teams workout Monday and then left practice early to participate in his appeal hearing with the league by telephone. Gordons hearing resumed Monday at the leagues offices in New York. Gordon and his legal team met with an arbitrator for nearly 10 hours on Friday, arguing against a potential one-year suspension for violating the leagues substance abuse policy. Gordons lawyer, Maurice Suh, is contending that the 23-year-old failed a test for marijuana because of secondhand smoke. Gordon missed two days of practice last week and Saturdays scrimmage in Akron. The Browns offence isnt the same without him and Clevelands players were excited to see him back on the field. "Its always special to have Josh out there," cornerback Joe Haden said. "When Josh is out there, its like LeBron came back. Hes a big, big part of our offence and a really, really special player." Despite being suspended two games last season and playing with three quarterbacks, Gordon still led the league with 1,646 yards receiving. The Browns are eager to find out whether theyll have Gordon at all this season, and theyre not sure if the delay in his case is an encouraging sign. Until they hear differently, the Browns are just happy to have No. 12 in uniform. "I just like seeing him on the field," wide receiver Nate Burleson said. "There are certain guys that the league needs to have on the field and hes one of them. Hes one of the more premiere talents in the NFL, so I hope that hes in a Browns jersey this year."

ROME -- Giuseppe Rossi scored a hat trick Sunday as Fiorentina came back from two goals down to stun two-time defending champion and fierce rival Juventus 4-2 in Serie A. Carlos Tevez and Paul Pogba gave Juventus a 2-0 halftime lead but Rossi struck back with goals in the 66th, 76th and 80th and Spanish forward Joaquin added his first Serie A strike in the 78th. "Its difficult to score against Juve and even more diffiult to score four times," Fiorentina coach Vincenzo Montella said. "Coming against a historic rival, this was a marvelous and splendid Sunday." Rossi has eight goals through eight rounds. The United States-born forward was recently called back into Italys national team after two years of injuries and three surgeries. "The goals were great but we really reacted well as a squad in the second half," Rossi said. "We showed a lot of courage and a lot of heart. We can play with anyone." Rossis father, Fernando, died in 2010. "Rossi has had two tough years both family-wise and injury-wise," Fiorentina captain Manuel Pasqual said. "He deserved a day like this." After its first loss, Juventus remained tied with Napoli five points behind Roma, which beat Napoli 2-0 Friday to extend its winning start to eight matches. Promoted Hellas Verona is fifth after beating Parma 3-2 with a goal from Fabrizio Cacciatore and two penalties from Jorginho -- one earned by former Italy forward Luca Toni. Fiorentina is tied for fifth with Inter Milan, which drew 3-3 at Torino with only 10 men in its first match since an announced takeover of the club by a group of Indonesian entrepreneurs. Fiorentina is sixth. In other matches, it was: Atalanta 2, Lazio 1; Genoa 2, Chievo Verona 1; Livorno 1, Sampdoria 2; Sassuolo 2, Bologna 1. Fiorentina had not beaten Juventus at home since December, 1998, when Gabriel Batistuta was the clubs key scorer. "For our fans, its as if we won a trophy today," Pasqual said. Juventus, meanwhile, doesnt have much time to regroup, with a match at Real Madrid in the Champions League on Wednesday. "The match was closed," Juventus coach Antonio Conte said. "Then something unthinkable happened. We lost a match that we were dominating. But thats football. ... We need to learn something from this.dddddddddddd." In Florence, it was all Juventus until Mati Fernandez was fouled by Kwadwo Asamoah to set up a penalty for Rossi in the 66th. Ten minutes later, Rossi appeared to surprise Gianluigi Buffon with a shot from beyond the area that the Juventus and Italy goalkeeper should have stopped. Joaquin was then left all alone inside the area to make it 3-2 and Rossi rounded out a career performance by finishing off a counterattack with Juan Cuadrado. In the 85th, Rossi exited to a well-earned standing ovation. It was quite a turnaround from the first half. Juventus playmaker Andrea Pirlo hit the crossbar in the 14th and the visitors took control when Tevez was fouled by Gonzalo Rodriguez at the edge of the area to set up a penalty for the Argentina forward in the 37th Pogba doubled Juves lead three minutes later by volleying in after Cuadrados clearing attempt went straight up into the air. In Turin, Inter goalkeeper Samir Handanovic was sent off for tripping Alessio Cerci five minutes in but reserve goalkeeper Juan Pablo Carrizo came on and blocked Cercis penalty. Swedish midfielder Alexander Farnerud gave Torino the lead in the 21st and Fredy Guarin responded for Inter in first-half added time with a spectacular bicycle kick following a corner. Ciro Immobile restored Torinos lead in the 53rd but Rodrigo Palacio replied two minutes later with a header at the edge of the box after goalkeeper Daniele Padelli failed to punch away a cross. Palacio scored again to give Inter a 3-2 lead in the 71st by tapping in a cross from Ishak Belfodil for his fifth of the season but Torino midfielder Nicola Bellomo equalized with a long, curling free kick into the far, top corner in the 90th for his first career goal in Serie A. Earlier in Bergamo, midfielder Luca Cigarini scored one goal and set up another as Atalanta won its third straight. Cigarini put the hosts ahead in the 41st with a long, low shot then provided the through ball for German Denis winner in the 84th.
