Josh Gordon is still getting integrated into the Patriot Way.

The New England Patriots will reportedly discipline Gordon over tardiness, holding him out of action on Monday night for roughly the first quarter, per Ian Rapoport of NFL Media. After that, he’ll be back to playing regularly with the offense.

This feels an awful lot like the kind of discipline we see from college teams. For Gordon, it’s a continuation of a long line of poor choices and lack of focus that has plagued him throughout his career.

Hopefully for his sake, and the sake of the Patriots, he learns his lesson. Last weekend he went over 100 yards and wowed with some outstanding play.
