Josh Gordon out for Monday night with knee, ankle injuries

When the Patriots face the Jets on Monday night, they won’t have Rob Gronkowski, Antonio Brown, or Josh Gordon.

Gordon has been ruled out of the Week Seven contest, with knee and ankle injuries.

Also out for the Patriots are tight end Matt LaCosse (knee) and tight end Ryan Izzo (concussion).

Questionable for Monday night are receiver Julian Edelman (chest), eceiver Phillip Dorsett (hamstring), receiver Gunner Olszewski (hamstring), running back Rex Burkhead (foot), and safety Patrick Chung (heel, chest). One or more of those players could be downgraded

The Patriots’ offense desperately needs a receiving target who constantly receives double coverage. Gordon is the closest thing they have to that.

That could soon change. The trade deadline is only 10 days away, and there’s a lingering sense that Bengals receiver A.J. Green is available, at the right price.

  1. Chiefs fans want to cry about injuries. No team has been hit with the injury bug any harder than the Patriots.

    I’m not a fan of either but the Chiefs with their 1 injury has been hit harder than the Pat’s. Every team has players playing with ailing injuries, maybe it’s the 1st injury report you’ve seen, but the Pat’s have yet to lose any of their top performers on either side of the ball.

  3. *Yawn*

    It doesn’t matter with their schedule. It’s softer than Charmin. Must be nice to play six games against the rest of the AFC East–all three of those teams have been terrible for about two decades.

    Its not as far apart as one might think because the Chiefs had two much higher individual impact players (Hill, now Mahomes) get hit, but still the sheer volume of losses the Patriots have had, some still of pretty decent impact themselves, is the heavier load if losses to absorb.

    Seriously? You apparently aren’t a Pats fan, the last game they only had 3 offensive players the last half!
    Look how the Saints, and Jacksonville are doing with their starting QBs out, even Pittsburgh looked good with their 3rd string QB in.
    So let’s see how KC manages, they looked okay once they lost their starting QB!

  6. I knew this game would be tough after watching the Jets beat Dallas. It just got a lot tougher. Rats! So we have Michel, White, Bolden, Meyers, Slater and Watson as targets and ball carriers? Okay. Saddle up. Let’s play football! Go Patriots!

  7. AJ is currently riding the pine and they’re not sure of a return date so why would the Pats take a chance on a player that might not see the field for a while?

  8. The over/under is 40.5. Can the Jets even score? 14 tops. Brady will score 21 both with his arm and heavy-footed feet. By himself. 27-14 Pats. Bet the under as a counter bet.

  9. Pats D is steady and well coached but this is NOT Seymour, Warren, Wilfork, McGinnist, Bruschi, Law and Milloy. Ths best Pats D ever is insane. Jets 28-21. Just like the 2010 Divisional. Or did you forget. In your building. 14-2 Pats. 2 weeks to prepare. Mark Sanchez…LOL

  10. Everyone’s talking about Darnold, everyone’s forgetting about the Pat’s defense. Might be a good game in the first half, but the 2nd half will belong to NE. Jets 13 Pats 36

  11. Wow jets fans still holding onto a win 7 years ago when they haven’t even made a super bowl in over 40 years. Hate to see it.
