Cleveland Browns' wide receiver Josh Gordon's DWI case in Raleigh was continued Tuesday, delayed until Nov. 18.

Gordon's attorney, Trey Fitzhugh, appeared briefly in court.

Gordon was arrested on Glenwood Avenue in July. Arrest warrants show he blew a .09. The legal limit in North Carolina is .08.

Gordon was released a few hours later after posting a $500 bond.

Raleigh police say an officer pulled Gordon over after spotting him driving 50 miles per hour in a 35-mile-per-hour zone, in a vehicle belonging to Charlotte Hornets player and former UNC standout P.J. Hairston.

Hairston claims the two swapped cars in the parking lot of a Chapel Hill grocery store.

The DWI is not Gordon's primary concern. He is waiting to hear from the NFL regarding his appeal of a possible year-long suspension for again violating the league's substance-abuse program.

A decision is expected soon.

Browns Coach Mike Pettine said Sunday that the team is preparing to be without the All-Pro wide receiver for at least part of the season.
