FOXBORO -- When Josh Gordon was traded to the Patriots from the Browns in September, he wasn't 100 percent. 

The wide receiver was battling a hamstring injury, which had him limited in practices for a few weeks after joining the team.

Speaking Thursday, Gordon admitted there's a big difference in his conditioning now compared to when he first joined the team.

“It’s night and day,” Gordon said. “Huge difference. Coach [Moses] Cabrera and the strength staff have been amazing and patient with me, helped me out through my injuries. The training staff, as well, bring me along where I’m safe and mobile. I think I’m as good as I’ve been.”

Gordon has had two of his best games as a member of the team since the bye week. He's caught his last eight passes for 128 yards and a touchdown. 

Overall, in nine games he has 34 receptions for 605 yards and three touchdowns.
