Patriots WR Josh Gordon present at Wednesday's practice

Patriots WR Josh Gordon present at Wednesday's practice

They've been trying to plug holes at receiver after starting the season without Julian Edelman (suspended for first four games), Danny Amendola (signed with Miami in free agency) and Brandin Cooks (traded to Los Angeles Rams).

The Patriots passing game definitely hasn't been one of the team's strengths this year.

One other thing that Brady is going to need to work on with Gordon is building trust.

Reactions poured in after ESPN's Adam Schefter revealed the official terms of the deal, which featured the Patriots sending a conditional fifth-round pick to the Browns.

New England worked out a deal with Cleveland for the embattled receiver about 48 hours after the Browns announced their intention to cut ties with him, saying they had "reached a point where we feel it's best to part ways and move forward". "I'm sure he's had that conversation with coach", linebacker Dont'a Hightower said. Perhaps they are hoping that in New England, Gordon will not have the opportunity to get himself in trouble personally and with the NFL. "But if you're anxious about this guy or that guy or this or that, you know, it just takes away from what your focus needs to be as an individual".

Death toll from Philippines landslide rises to 46
Meanwhile, the Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte urged rescuers to halt efforts as the goldmines in the area are not safe. Hong Kong authorities also rushed to the aid of five Filipino workers at a dive resort.

While this all does depend on Gordon, his hamstring is reportedly alright and he should be playing Sunday against the Detroit Lions.

Although Gordon didn't speak to the media on Wednesday, we did see his locker in the Patriots locker room is located right next to Tom Brady's.

Basically, it sounds like Gordon will likely play on Sunday unless the Patriots somehow haven't finalized his trade six days after trading for him.

"I'm not going to talk about players that are not actually, I would say, on our roster totally".
