What gives? On Monday, head coach Andy Reid said Josh Gordon is being plenty productive without the ball and eventually, targets will come his way.
“So, Josh, his time is going to come as far as the production in the pass game,” Reid said in his press conference. “Right now, he’s attracting attention, which is opening up other people, which is a positive thing. His blocking has been tremendous in the run game. He plays extremely hard. He’s got himself in the last week or two here in really good football shape. He’s been out of this thing for a couple years, so that’s easier said than done and I sure like what we saw in practice last week.
While most were excited about the fit in the offense at the time of the signing, Gordon has now started three games for Kansas City. He even played 43 percent of the team’s offensive snaps in Sunday’s contest. But Gordon hasn’t made a catch since his 11-yard reception in his Chiefs debut back in Week 5. To this point, he hasn’t even had more than one target in any of his six games, the story said.
