The New England Patriots placed starting wide receiver Josh Gordon on injured reserve today but he’s reportedly expecting to be released once healthy.
#Patriots WR Josh Gordon was placed on Injured Reserve today because of two bone bruises in his knee that he dealt with before the injury against the #Giants, sources say. His time in NE is likely over as they are moving on. He’ll be waived off IR when fully healthy.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) October 23, 2019
Source says Patriots WR Josh Gordon expects to be medically cleared soon, and that his knee injury is "minor". I was told he ran 22 MPH on the treadmill during a rehab session today.— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) October 23, 2019
Once he's cleared, he hopes to be released off of IR and sign with a new team.
So, should the Philadelphia Eagles have interest?
Eagles WRs by PFF grade— Brandon Lee Gowton (@BrandonGowton) October 22, 2019
Alshon Jeffery - 35th out of 184
Nelson Agholor - 160th out of 184
Mack Hollins - 166th out of 184
JJ Arcega-Whiteside 182nd out of 184
Hmmmmmmm. It’s tough to say, but ... yes.
Yes, the Eagles should be interested in the 28-year-old with 240 career receptions for 4,113 yards (17.1 average) and 20 touchdowns.
Important to note, though:
All players go through waivers when released starting next Wednesday (the day after the trading deadline). So, even though Josh Gordon is a vested veteran, he’d go on waivers if the #Patriots cut him off IR after that ... meaning the likes of the #Dolphins would have first crack.— Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) October 23, 2019
