Lynn told SiriusXM NFL Radio on Thursday that the running back will play after missing the past three weeks due to a knee injury.
"Melvin's practiced all week and he's doing fine," the coach said, via Ross Tucker. "I don't know that he's himself, but he's going to play."
As the running back was listed as a full participant in practice on Tuesday and Wednesday, it was assumed Gordon would return. It's still good to hear the coach confirm a supposition.
