When head coach Hue Jackson was asked if the team would activate Gordon on Monday, Jackson said the team will wait a little longer.

When asked about his plans for Gordon this week, Jackson made it clear he's ready to put the wide receiver to work.

"My plans for him? Oh boy, let me tell you (laughter). I have big plans for him. I plan for him to play and play as much as he can handle. I think he is a very talented player. He needs to play, needs to get out there and play but we have to see where he is and make sure how much can he handle, how much can he do."

Gordon returned to practice last week for the first time since the 2016 season. It's been even longer since he's played. He has not competed in a regular season game since 2014
