Gordon suffered the knee injury in week 6 against the New York Giants on Thursday Night Football. He injured his knee attempting to make a tackle after a Tom Brady fumble.
In 6 games this season Gordon was second on the team in receiving yards with 287 and had just 20 receptions. He also had one touchdown. Gordon who is one of the best receivers downfield, was one of Tom Brady’s favorite targets.
Gordon is in his sixth season in the league. He previously played with Cleveland for 4 season before being traded to the Patriots. Off-field issues and injuries have had a toll on his career. Aside from that, Gordon is one of the most skilled receivers in the game.
The Patriots traded for wide receiver Mohamed Sanu Monday morning following their 33-0 shutout victory over the New York Jets on Sunday Night Football. A team that is not fazed by much, will look to continue their dominant start to the 2019-20 season.
