Russell Wilson: Josh Gordon won "huge catches" in the Seahawks' 49ers victory

The Seattle Seahawks needed one of their most effective receivers to get up when Tyler Lockett was injured in the leg in the fourth quarter of Monday's win over the San Francisco 49ers. Fortunately, Josh Gordon was there to answer the call.

Gordon, who was playing his first game with the Seahawks after being surrendered on November 1, had two catches for 27 yards, but both had played an important role in Seattle's win. Gordon's first take as Seahawk was on a record of 3 and 6, scoring 13 yards with a 13-yard gain, leading the goalie to give the Seahawks a 24-21 advantage. Gordon also had 14 yards in overtime for a first try.

A solid night in Gordon's debut, especially for an attack in Seattle that needed him to step up.

"Josh Gordon was a great addition to our team," Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson said after the game. "We have a lot of good receivers and a lot of guys who can catch football and play games." He made huge gains today on the third try, with one right and one left. "The games he played with confidence on the third run to keep rolling, he was great, he had a great week, so it's great to have him on our football team."

With Lockett's status uncertain for the Seahawks in Week 12 and the Philadelphia Eagles (Seattle has a week in Week 11), making Gordon a viable outdoor weapon will be crucial to Seahawk pass play. Gordon is currently part of the third deep table squad in Seattle, behind David Moore and Jaron Brown, but another week of training could allow Gordon to line up against the Metcalf.

Gordon needed four quarters to make a reception in his early days, but only played 38% of the shots in his debut. More games will give rise to a higher number of snapshots for Gordon and more opportunities for the future, especially if Lockett is away for a long time.
