The Kansas City Chiefs’ signing of veteran wide receiver Josh Gordon to their practice squad is a smart move because Gordon will have to prove himself before being activated to the 53-man roster. And, according to a recent report, he’s doing just that. According to NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport, Gordon impressed during his first week with the defending AFC champions and could be promoted to the 53-man roster as early as Week 5.

“In his first week on the job, new Chiefs receiver Josh Gordon made quite an impression. So much so that, according to sources, Gordon could be promoted to the active roster next week,” Rapoport wrote on Sunday, October 3.

Gordon’s great playing shape is one of the reasons why he has impressed and could find himself on the 53-man roster sooner rather than later after signing to the practice squad on Monday, September 27.

“A low-risk signing,” Rapoport wrote, “Gordon could pay off quickly.” “He was described as having the build of a No. 1 receiver, weighing in at 230 pounds and moving quickly. According to one source, you’d never guess he’s 30. In practice, he has really shone. ”

In addition to his physical prowess at the age of 30, Gordon’s potential ascension to the active roster hinges on his ability to quickly pick up Kansas City’s playbook. Fortunately, he was already familiar with it. “He’s also picked up the offense quickly,” Rapoport wrote, “thanks in part to some similarities from what he ran in Cleveland when he first entered the league with the Browns.” “On that 2012 team, Brad Childress was the offensive coordinator, so some of the language is similar. ”

The Kansas City Chiefs face the Philadelphia Eagles at 12 p.m. today, Sunday, October 3. It’s Arrowhead Time! While Reid stated prior to the game that Gordon would not be ready to play in Week 4, it appears that he will suit up for Kansas City not long after.

If Gordon is activated to the 53-man roster in Week 5, he will make his Chiefs debut against the Buffalo Bills on Sunday Night Football. Andy Reid Hilariously Compares Himself to Gordon

One of the more amusing observations about Gordon during his first week with the Chiefs was head coach Andy Reid’s assessment of the veteran receiver.

$ When asked about Gordon’s conditioning during his Thursday press conference, Reid joked, “He’s got a little less body fat than I do.” “He’s slim and trim, and he’s in great shape..” Working out is one of the things he’s been doing. But I believe he’s in good shape and has been working extremely hard. He won’t be playing this week, but he’ll be getting ready by learning the playbook, working on his mental game, and knocking off some rust. But it’s clear that he’s a gifted musician. You’ve all seen him play before, and I’m not going to tell you anything you don’t already know: he’s a talented football player. ”

It’s safe to say that Gordon has just a little less body fat than the man nicknamed “Big Red.” ”
