Gordon will not be traveling with the team for their Saturday road trip to New England, reports Mike Giardi of NFL Network. Gordon, who has been listed as questionable, has been effectively ruled out.
Mike Klis of 9News first reported the news.
Gordon fell with a non-COVID-19 illness on Friday that forced him to skip training. Saturday’s news wraps up a tough week for Gordon, who was charged with a DUI in Denver on Tuesday night.
The good news for the Broncos is that they will meet RB Phillip Lindsay this Sunday. Lindsay, who hasn’t played since Week 1, was activated from the injured reserve this week after recovering from a toe injury. Gordon has been a useful return for the Broncos in Lindsay’s absence; rush for 281 yards averaging 4.3 yards per carry and lead the team with four total TDs (three rushing, one receiving).
Here’s some more injury and roster news we’re following on Saturday:
- The Cleveland Browns have elevated safety Elijah Benton to the active roster of the practice squad.
- The Cincinnati Bengals have signed defensive tackle Kahlil McKenzie to the active practice roster.
