When the New England Patriots take the field on Monday night, they will likely be without wide receiver Josh Gordon.
The star wide receiver suffered what looked to be a significant leg injury during the team’s game against the New York Giants.
Gordon appeared to get rolled up on and had his knee bend in an unnatural way. He left the game and did not return, but was seen on the sideline riding the stationary bike.
At practice this week, Gordon either failed to participate or participated in a limited capacity.
According to the team’s injury report, Gordon is dealing with multiple injuries.
Patriots injury report:
Limited participation: RB Rex Burkhead (foot), S Patrick Chung (heel/chest), WR Phillip Dorsett (hamstring), WR Julian Edelman (chest/ribs)
No participation: WR Josh Gordon (knee), TE Matt LaCosse (knee)

Even with a few extra days to get healthy for Monday’s game against the Jets, Gordon doesn’t appear to be on track to play.
If he’s forced to miss time, star wide receiver Julian Edelman and preseason standout Jakobi Meyers will see increased targets.
The Patriots will also be without defensive end Michael Bennett who is serving a one-game suspension. Bennett and defensive line coach Bret Bielema allegedly engaged in a “philosophical disagreement.”
The Jets shocked the Dallas Cowboys last weekend after Sam Darnold returned from the lengthy absence.
He’ll try to lead New York to its second-straight upset win.
