Gordon was cut from the Titans' practice squad Monday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Analysis: Gordon will look for another opportunity elsewhere after being let go by the Titans on Monday. While with the team, the wide receiver was elevated to the active roster twice, failing to reel in his only target while playing 22 offensive snaps. Gordon's next chance will likely be with another practice unit.

Gordon reverted to the Titans' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log.
Analysis: Gordon saw six snaps on offense, but he failed to tally any snaps. This was the second consecutive week that Gordon was elevated to the active roster, which leaves him with one more opportunity to be elevated before having to be signed to the 53-man roster.

Tennessee elevated Gordon from its practice squad Saturday for Week 3, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Analysis: It will be the second consecutive week Gordon is active for the Titans, but he saw just one target in Week 2. After Sunday's game versus the Raiders, he will only be eligible for one more elevation from the practice squad before he would have to be signed to the team's active roster in order to play.

Gordon reverted to the Titans' practice squad Tuesday, per the NFL's official transaction log.
Analysis: Gordon signed to the Titans' practice squad Sept. 1 after he was a casualty of the Chiefs' final roster cuts. He made his debut with the team in Monday's loss to the Bills, although he failed to make an impact on the stat sheet. In his 16 offensive snaps, Gordon saw one target which he was unable to haul in.

Gordon will be elevated from Tennessee's practice squad for Monday's game against the Bills, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.
Analysis: Gordon will make his Titans debut Monday. The veteran wide receiver failed to make the Chiefs' roster in training camp, but Gordon's hoping to prove that he can still contribute at the NFL level. If he performs well against the stout Buffalo secondary, Gordon could earn a permanent spot on Tennessee's roster.

The Titans signed Gordon to the practice squad Wednesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Analysis: Gordon was released by the Chiefs on Tuesday after he failed to secure a spot on the team's final 53-man roster this preseason. The 31-year-old caught five passes for 32 yards and one score last year, so it's likely that the aging wideout will slot into a depth role should he manage to make his way onto Tennessee's active roster at any point this regular season.

The Chiefs are releasing Gordon, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.
Analysis: Suspensions typically derailed Gordon in the past, but at this point the 31-year-old might just not be quick enough to warrant playing time and a roster spot. The Chiefs will go with younger players for depth spots at wide receiver.

Gordon (undisclosed) was practicing with the team Sunday, Jesse Newell of the Kansas City Star reports.
Analysis: Gordon left a June 15 minicamp practice early, but an update on his status was previously unavailable. The 31-year-old receiver is looking to carve out a bigger role for himself this season with the departure of Tyreek Hill, Demarcus Robinson and Byron Pringle, but the additions of JuJu Smith-Schuster, Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Skyy Moore will likely leave Gordon in the same position on the wide receiver depth chart as last year.

Gordon left Wednesday's minicamp practice early due to an undisclosed injury, Adam Teicher of ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: Gordon signed a reserve/future contract with the Chiefs this offseason after he joined their practice squad in late September. In his first year with Kansas City, he caught just five of 14 targets for 32 yards and a touchdown across 12 appearances. However, if healthy, he'll have an opportunity to carve out a bigger role in 2022 after the departure of Tyreek Hill.

Kansas City signed Gordon to a reserve/future contract Wednesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.
Analysis: Gordon joined Kansas City's practice squad in late September after being reinstated from his indefinite suspension, and he spent most of the season on the active roster. However, he secured just five of 14 targets for 32 yards and a touchdown across 12 regular-season appearances. The 30-year-old will attempt to carve out a larger role in the system during the offseason.

Gordon has been signed to Kansas City's practice squad, Aaron Wilson of Pro Football Network reports.
Analysis: Gordon was waived by the Chiefs on Monday and the expectation at the time was that he'd land on the team's practice squad assuming he cleared waivers. With that having happened and the move now official, Gordon provides Kansas City with added wideout depth ahead of Sunday's AFC Championship game against the Bengals. In 12 regular-season appearances, the 30-year-old caught five passes for 32 yards and a touchdown on 14 targets.

Gordon cleared waivers Tuesday, after which the Chiefs are expected to sign him to the practice squad, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.
Analysis: Since joining the Chiefs' active roster in early October, Gordon was unable to make much headway in the team's receiving corps, topping out at a 43 percent snap share Week 10, missing Week 15 due to a stint on the reserve/COVID-19 list and being inactive for both playoff games to date. Once he's officially back on the practice squad, he'll likely vie with Daurice Fountain for elevation for as long as Kansas City remains alive in the postseason.

The Chiefs waived Gordon on Monday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.
Analysis: Kansas City's decision to cut Gordon doesn't come out of nowhere -- the 30-year-old wideout had been a healthy inactive for both of the Chiefs' first two postseason games. The Chiefs reportedly plan to sign Gordon to their practice squad, but he'll first have to go unclaimed off waivers by the NFL's other 31 teams. After signing a one-year deal with Kansas City in early October, Gordon suited up in 12 regular-season contests and recorded five receptions for 32 yards and a touchdown on 14 targets.
Jan 24, 2022 1:54 PM EST
Gordon (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's contest against the Bills, Adam Teicher of ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: Gordon played a minimal role for Kansas City during the regular season, and he'll be a healthy scratch for the second straight playoff game. His absence shouldn't significantly impact the Chiefs' offensive plans.
Jan 23, 2022 2:27 PM EST
Gordon (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's wild-card matchup against the Steelers, Matt Derrick of ChiefsDigest.com reports.
Analysis: Gordon played a minimal role for Kansas City during the regular season, and he'll be a healthy scratch to begin the playoffs. His absence shouldn't significantly impact the Chiefs' plans on offense.
Jan 16, 2022 4:21 PM EST
Gordon didn't catch his lone target in the regular-season finale versus the Broncos on Saturday.
Analysis: Gordon was minutely used on offense after joining the Chiefs midseason, finishing out the campaign with only five catches for 32 yards and a touchdown on 14 targets. He's likely past the point in his career where we can expect a resurgence and he's set to become an unrestricted free agent again following the season.
Jan 14, 2022 1:52 PM EST
Gordon reeled in his only target for five yards Sunday versus the Bengals.
Analysis: Gordon hasn't seen a ton of action for the Chiefs overall and has just five catches for 32 yards and a touchdown to his name since joining the Chiefs. The veteran wideout isn't what he once was, given his extended layoff from action, and it doesn't appear like he will be much of a receiving threat for the Chiefs down the stretch and into the playoffs.
Jan 4, 2022 11:41 AM EST
Gordon was unable to corral any of his three targets during Sunday's game against the Steelers.
Analysis: ON a positive note, Gordon did match his season-high mark for targets, but it came amidst just eight offensive snaps (12 percent) compared to the 1much larger snap counts he had posted over the previous six games. That being said, Godon was also just returning from a COVID-19 absence, so it's possible he wasn't quite 100 percent for this one. He's unlikely to be much of a fantasy factor even once he's back to full strength.
Dec 28, 2021 6:15 PM EST
Gordon is off the reserve/COVID-19 list and returned to practice Wednesday, Herbie Teope of The Kansas City Star reports.
Analysis: Gordon's return to the mix bolsters Kansas City's wideout depth ahead of Sunday's game against the Steelers. With Tyreek Hill on on the reserve/COVID-19 list, Gordon, Byron Pringle, Demarcus Robinson and Mecole Hardman are candidates to log extra work in Week 16 if Hill isn't cleared to suit up versus Pittsburgh.
Dec 22, 2021 11:41 AM EST
Gordon (illness) was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list ahead of Thursday's game against the Chargers, Nate Taylor of The Athletic reports.
Analysis: Gordon tested positive for the virus Monday so it's not a major surprise he didn't clear the health and safety protocols on short week. He'll have some extra time to clear the protocols before the Dec. 26 matchup with the Steelers.
