Rob Gronkowski TE NE Nov 19 '1232 Comments

NFL.com's Albert Breer expects Rob Gronkowski (broken left forearm) to push for a Week 14 return.

The Patriots have a critical two-game swing with the Texans and 49ers beginning in Week 14, but that would have Gronk missing just two games despite being given a 4-8 week timetable. It's doubtful he'll be ready for Houston, but if he is, it means he'd be a go for the fantasy playoffs. We would say a clearer idea of Gronk's timeline should emerge in the coming days, but then again, we're talking about the Patriots. What we do know is that Gronk can be safely ruled out for Thanksgiving.

Bill belichek I hate you....

Trust me guys, he WON'T be back until the playoffs. They pretty much already have a playoff spot and they will do alright without him. He will be questionable come week 14 and 15 but they will say "f**k it" and keep him rested until the playoffs because they definitely need him there. Trade him, you're way better off.

The only way a trade makes sense is if you're in redraft league and the trade deadline has not passed. If you're in a keeper league, you'd be dumb to trade him because of this injury.

SAY IT AINT SO!!!!!!!!!!!!

It is too bad for Gronk and his owners, but blame BeIchick for this one. The guy always runs up the score and Gronk should not have been out on the field at that time. They were up by 30 points late in the 4th quarter and still throwing the ball.

What a classless POS!

JayTee, I agree with the "POS" and classless assertion but how many players, in the history of the NFL have gotten hurt while blocking during an extra point? Regardless of the score and time of game, Gronk is in on that "package". That's not to say that no one else can block during an extra point but that's the way their team is set up. Now, on the other hand, wheat happened in Washington with McCoy was sickening! Reid had Bryce Brown in a few weeks ago while up by 10 points, running the ball, this past week he has McCoy in running the ball with 1:44 to go while down by 25? That is a FIRE-ABLE offense!!!

I totally agree and well put. I think this was a case of a lame duck coach just winging it and checking out at the expense of one of his best players.

Riggs44R Nov 20 '12

Reid said, he will not get off the ship while it's going down. Ah huhhh, he has 6 million reasons($) not too! Hahaaa

awesome, isn't it?

lol :)

Do some research. The injury was on an extra point. How ever they score, pass TD, special teams or rush TD they have to kick the extra point and ni the NFL there is no 2nd team for the extra point. Gronk had to be out there.

Riggs44R Nov 22 '12

Is there an echo in here? Said this 2 days ago...

jaytee9 Nov 23 '12

Yes, I am aware of that. But what in the hell were they doing still throwing the ball and trying to score up by 30 points with a few minutes left in the game!!!

Typical run up the score mentality by NE coaching staff.

tschul Nov 23 '12

Get your facts right, he got hurt on an extra point, not a passing play!

jaytee9 Nov 25 '12

For the last time, I am aware of that! But on that drive, they were still throwing the ball up by 30 points. That was my point.

Riggs44R Nov 25 '12

Belicheck is a historian, he's well aware of the great comebacks in the NFL, he doesn't want to be a TB vs Manning Colts or the Oilers vs a Reich lead Bills or the Chargers vs Manning Broncos

tschul Nov 25 '12

Have you seen Belicheck coach, that's his style. Pile it on.

jaytee9 Nov 25 '12

Yes, hence the reason for my classless POS comment. One of these days, the tables will be turned, and I cannot wait.

Riggs44R Nov 26 '12

As soon as Brady retires. Hahaaaaaa

Unless the hoody goes with him.......

Flywron Nov 19 '12

In my lrague. B.Myers is gone. Not much left to choose from.. Dallas Clark and Jermichael Finley is avaiable who would you choose.

GCBALLA Nov 19 '12

Finley

Sumo_Zombies Nov 19 '12

That would be a near-miracle if Gronk could come back in time for Week 14!

Joe385 Nov 19 '12

I Lost Gronk Too

Lucky I HAve T.Gonzalez

But If U need a good Te Look at Brandon myers

MaxPotato Nov 19 '12

who is his backup TE...should I try to play him instead of try for another one in this league free agency ?

VinceB128 Nov 19 '12

Techinically his 'backup' is Aaron Hernandez assuming he's healthy, although he's probably not on free agency. Visanthe Shiancoe will probably play for Gronk either way. He'll probably produce decently.

Riggs44R Nov 20 '12

No, "technically" Gronk's backups are Fells and Manamanowanuui or w/e his name is, Shiancoe backs up Hernandez's position, one is the X and the other the Y
