Patriots WR Josh Gordon listed as questionable to face Lions

Patriots WR Josh Gordon is still dealing with a hamstring injury and may be missing against the Detroit Lions.

Wide receiver Josh Gordon may have to wait a bit longer to make his debut with the New England Patriots. 

Gordon, who was traded from the Cleveland Browns to New England earlier this week, is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Detroit Lions. 

The 27-year-old is still dealing with a hamstring injury he claims to have suffered during a photo shoot with Cleveland. He joined the Patriots as a limited participant in practice this week.

The Browns announced last Saturday that they planned to part ways with Gordon after he reportedly did not report to the facility on time. There was also an "overall trust issue" between the team and player.

Gordon missed much of the offseason as he took time away from the team to deal with personal matters but announced his return mid-August. He has been suspended multiple times for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy, missing the entire 2015 and 2016 seasons before returning towards the end of last season.

His best season came in 2013 when he made the Pro Bowl after registering 1,646 receiving yards and nine touchdowns for the Browns.
