Josh Gordon was expected to miss New England’s first few possessions Monday in Buffalo, but that didn’t turn out to be the case.
The Patriots wide receiver started the team’s 25-6 win over the Bills, despite reports that he would be held out one quarter because of tardiness after he arrived late to Gillette Stadium on Sunday before the team left for Buffalo.
“That’s going to be a question you’re going to have to ask Coach about,” Gordon said after the game, via NFL Media. “In relation to the game, I was available, so that’s a plus.”
In true Bill Belichick form, the Patriots coach dismissed the disciplinary reports when prompted for an explanation.
“You’d have to talk to whoever wrote that,” Belichick said. “I have no idea.”
The Patriots acquired Gordon from the Browns in exchange for a late-round draft choice in mid-September. The 27-year-old has 18 catches for 283 yards and two touchdowns this season.
