It was announced the 19-year-old and fellow Blades under 23s player Marcus Dewhurst had extended their spells at the Jakemans Community Stadium earlier this week.
However, interim Pilgrim boss Paul Green has suffered a frustrating blow ahead of his first game in charge after Gordon returned to Bramall Lane.
Gordon has made five appearances for United this season.
It has not been confirmed why the defender - who made two appearances for the Blades in the EFL Cup at the start of the campaign - has been recalled.
