In Gordon's first week, he's participated in three practices and is now listed as questionable for Sunday night's game in Detroit.

Tom Brady described his chemistry with new Patriots' acquisition Josh Gordon as a "work in progress", but stressed that his new receiver option was "really eager to get in there and learn everything" during the first couple practices.

When asked about Gordon's past substance abuse issues, Belichick said he would not talk about a player's injury or personal issues.

Five years removed from one of the best seasons by any wide receiver in National Football League history, Gordon's raw skill alone is probably enough for the Patriots to get away with throwing him into play when they travel to Detroit this Sunday. "I mean, look, he's been here for a few days so we're working at it every day and every day you try to make improvements. That's any time you get new players, that's what you try to do". "We'll see how it goes, but I think Josh is a smart kid, he's worked hard, he's picked up a lot".

"Since the last time we met, we've officially added Josh [Gordon] and Cyrus [Jones] to the roster", Belichick said. Gordon was acquired on Monday in exchange for a draft pick after the Cleveland Browns grew exhausted of waiting for his come around.

"We'll see", Belichick said. The steal of a deal is something New England is excited to use to its advantage.

Of course, we all know about the well-documented issues Gordon has had since then.
