Andy Reid: We’ll keep bringing Josh Gordon along


Receiver Josh Gordon was active for his second game with Kansas City on Sunday, but he didn’t get much playing time.

After Gordon was on the field for just nine snaps in his Week Five debut, he ended up playing just 11 in the Chiefs’ 31-13 victory over Washington. Gordon didn’t receive a target in the contest.

“Yeah, it just didn’t work out that way, but we’ll keep bringing him along,” head coach Andy Reid said on Monday, via “I think he’s just starting to get comfortable with this whole thing. We had him in for a couple few plays. I don’t know what it totaled out, but he’ll be fine. We just keep working through everything.”

Gordon caught his one target for 11 yards in the Week Five loss to the Bills.

Receiver Tyreek Hill and tight end Travis Kelce are always going to pace Kansas City’s offense as quarterback Patrick Mahomes‘ primary targets. But Gordon can emerge as another option alongside Mecole Hardman, Byron Pringle, and Demarcus Robinson as he spends more time with the team.

The Chiefs play the Titans in Week Seven.

  1. Not wishing ill on the guy, but how many times are we going to do this? My guess is a nice, fat NFL contract and a lot of free time isn’t helping all that much.

  2. I like when guys have to prove it. A lot of times guys get into trouble and will immediately be rewarded because of a name or talent. Imagine a guy having to show up, work hard and prove he belongs…. Good for Andy, and hopefully it’s good for Josh too.
