Patriots | Rob Gronkowski a long shot to play
Fri, 04 Oct 2013 11:17:23 -0700
Updating a previous report, New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (forearm, back) is a long shot to play in Week 5 against the Cincinnati Bengals. Gronkowski has expressed a desire to make his season debut in Week 6 against the New Orleans Saints.
Gronkowski wants to make sure he's 100 percent healthy before returning. With the Pats traveling to play in Cincy this weekend, we should know tomorrow whether Gronk will play; New England typically doesn't travel players that they intend to make inactive for the games.
