The New England Patriots newest roster addition in wide receiver, Josh Gordon, is “no sure thing” to play against the Detroit Lions due to his injured hamstring, NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport reported Sunday morning, citing sources.
New #Patriots WR Josh Gordon (hamstring) is no sure thing to play tonight, sources say. He’ll have to test his hamstring pre-game and the team is preparing for scenarios without him on the field, as well as one with him playing. Clear they aren’t 100% counting on it.

Gordon is officially listed as questionable for tonight’s game after being limited in practice all week, and it sounds like we won’t know his status until the very last minute as he will be testing the hamstring before game time. The 27-year-old reportedly injured that hamstring during a “promotional photo shoot” last Friday, two days before the Cleveland Browns’ Week 2 game against the New Orleans Saints.
