Josh Gordon did not play in last Sunday night's Patriots-Lions game, as the New England wide receiver had been with the team for only a couple of days after getting traded from Cleveland.
Will Gordon be making his Patriots debut this weekend? It's looking promising.
Gordon, who was nursing a hamstring injury with the Cleveland Browns, has a good chance of playing today, according to the latest reports.
ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter provided an update on Gordon and the Patriots this morning. Gordon is expected to test his hamstring pregame and as long as everything goes OK, he should be on the field.
"If Patriots’ WR Josh Gordon’s hamstring is OK during pre-game warmups today, he is expected to play some today vs. Dolphins, per source," he reports.
Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski is also nursing an injury, but he, too, is expected to play.
"TE Rob Gronkowski, listed as Q today with an ankle injury, will play vs. Dolphins, per league source," Schefter added.
The Patriots are looking to avoid what would be a disastrous 1-3 start to the season against the Dolphins this afternoon.
New England and Miami are set to kick off at 1 p.m. E.T. The game will be on CBS.
