Neither Tom Brady nor Julian Edelman elaborated about the recent loss of teammate Josh Gordon when asked about the wide receiver's indefinite suspension this week, but both New England Patriots stars have since supported Gordon on social media. Gordon was suspended indefinitely Thursday for violating the terms of his conditional reinstatement under the NFL's drug policy. Gordon, dealing with undisclosed mental health issues for some time now, chose to temporarily walk away from the National Football League, in order to focus on those issues, all the power to him. "I have recently felt like I could have a better grasp on things mentally".

Gordon had 40 catches for a team-high 720 yards in 11 games for New England before being suspended.

Josh Gordon's off-field conduct in the past two years put him in the NFL's proverbial doghouse on countless occasions, all for substance abuse violations likely associated with his mental health condition (s). Hours before the NFL announced his suspension, Gordon tweeted that he was stepping away from football to focus on his mental health.

Hawes also issued a warning about the adverse consequences for the United Kingdom automotive sector of a "no-deal" Brexit. Production for the home market shrunk 1.9 percent, while that for the export market plummeted 22.8 percent.

Sources believe that Gordon somehow eluded New England's security team during the team's November 18 bye weekend, when the Patriots had their weekend off.

According to ESPN, the team had an "elaborate security plan" with Gordon to help avoid the temptations that eventually got him suspended last week.

"The Patriots were very upfront about this possibility all along", Rapoport said.
