Update: Though the original report stated Josh Gordon would be disciplined, Gordon started Monday night's game.
Gordon starts. So now you know the benching information didn't come from the team.— Tom E. Curran (@tomecurran) October 30, 2018
Original story: Josh Gordon's tenure with the Patriots had gone smoothly to this point, but it appears there has been one hiccup leading up to Monday night's game vs the Bills.
The Patriots reportedly will discipline Gordon for tardiness by keeping him off the field for several series Monday night, according to Ian Rapaport of NFL Network.
Sources: The #Patriots are disciplining WR Josh Gordon during tonight’s game vs. the #Bills because of tardiness. He’s expected to be kept off the field for several series — about a quarter — as they continue to work with & manage him. It’ll be regular playing time after that.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) October 29, 2018
Gordon, of course, is no stranger to being disciplined for his off-the-field actions. This is his first known issue with New England.
